She has a full menu of classes, found here. Coming up next week is
Art for Healing
6 Wednesdays Oct. 12 – Nov. 16
6:30 – 8:30 PM
$110.00 Materials Included
This class is designed as a venue for you to nourish yourself and develop your inner ability to stand up to the challenges in your life. We all carry wounds. We all have scars. But we can create a new beautiful vision for our lives. We will create a gentle encouraging environment that will allow you to spend some reflective time with yourself and develop tools to express your essence through visual arts. Each participant will be given a sketchbook to record imagery both in and out of class, through visual journaling. We will spend each session sharing, having informal discussions, guided meditations and art making. Art activities include acrylic painting, sculpture and more.

Amoke Kubat is recovering from a car accident and has cancelled tonight’s reading. Please send her your best wishes for recovery. Her voice is needed at the upcoming women’s conference in Washington DC (and, back at The Art Shoppe when she’s better.)
In the meantime, READ HER BOOK!
Missing Mama – a chronicle of loss, sorry & healing
Amoke Kubat — Twin Cities based author, playwright, community organizer and Revered Wise Elder will read from Missing Mama at the Art Shoppe at Midtown Global Market on Friday night, June 10 from 5:30-7.
This stunning coming of age story chronicles the journey of a motherless black girl from childhood to young womanhood with clarity and grace. Much has been written about the effect of missing fathers, this book opens a door to understanding the effect of missing mothers.

For you or a friend? Whether you are a Steampunk fan, an obsessed Steampunker, or infused with Whimsy, put Marilyn Morrison‘s Steampunk Robots on your list.
The Robots, the Airplane and the Birdhouse are irresistible. I know, because I wanted to play with them instead of taking their pictures.
Steampunk Gift Idea
A box of Marilyn Morrison’s Steampunk Robots and a collection of the nine novels that defined Steampunk.
