My Visual Journaling Teaching Schedule and GIVEAWAY November 10, 2015

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

I am finally announcing my workshops schedule for 2016…I am beyond beyond excited…I have carefully chosen places I wholeheartedly believe will be a great fit to the manner in which I naturally create, and to my innermost longings to connect to people and places, wishes to share what I have inside me with others.

For more information about the individual workshops please contact the host or visit the link noted underneath the specific poster. Please scroll down to find them!


I’ve decided to give one of my workshops away to one eager student. The workshops that are up for winning are the ones that have my email address underneath the posters below. That’s orlyavineri@gmail.com. There are 7 of them. To enter the drawing please leave a comment here and mention the specific workshop you are interested in attending.

A winner will be randomly drawn on Friday, November 13, at noon Pacific Time.

I hope you’ll join me someday in 2016

I would love to come to any of your classes in the US, but I guess the trip alone would be costy so not sure I could if I was so lucky to win one. But will check out the one where you’re coming to Sweden – that is just awsomee – it’s where I am! Thank you dear one! 🙂

Hello Orly,
What a generous give away. Can’t tell you how happy I would be to attend one of your workshops. I guess it would be kind of like a miracle to win? I would be ecstatic to win any of your workshops but if I had my choice it would be The Visual Journal as Sanctuary in Portland, A visual Journal….a place for Independence Star Idaho, or The Visual Journal as Sanctuary in Redondo Beach, CA. I would just like to take a class from you and no one comes to INDIANA!

63. Lori Wostl - November 11, 2015

Dear Orly,

Please pick me!

I am a Nomad so I don’t need a workshop on that!

I have wanted to take a workshop with you since I first saw your work in 2010. I can never seem to swing the swag to spend just on myself. There are lots of folk in my family who want the vacation funds and the classroom funds, from grandkids to husbands…just never seems like fair to spend it all on myself. (I am not complaining – they are the best. I forgot what you wanted us to write. But I love your work, I love your passion and I would love to take a class with you. I would like the Idaho venue or the Portland venue (would we actually meet Flora?!)
Please pick me!

Currently on the road thru January 10, 2016

64. Tara Ross - November 11, 2015

I would so love to win one of your wonderful classes. I would love to win the Portland in July class.
