Dear Creative Beings,

We want to extend a bow of gratitude to those in our Color of Woman community and interest circle for a wonderful Enrollment Cycle and experience this year. Registration for 2018 is now closed and we look forward to the journey ahead.

If you’re feeling called towards Color of Woman, we’ll continue updating you through these posts.  You can add yourself to our special ‘interest list’ here, to be the first to receive updates on enrollment and what we’re up to.

Today we are sharing this gift with you, from Shiloh Sophia and the Intentional Creativity Foundation, a Poster about Curating Transformation through IC. This is for reading, downloading, sharing, printing to hang in your studio or pass out to friends and family as inspired. You can also share on Facebook here.
