Moonshine 2019

Moonshine 2019 is Effy Wild’s ‘woo woo container’ for art witchery & working with visual arts as a form of magic. In this class, we will work on encountering the divine through mixed media art, art journaling as a devotional practice, and more.

Moonshine begins on December 31st, 2018, but includes instant access to Book Of Days Boot Camp Version 1.0 + a few introductory bonuses which you will find in the classroom. These will keep you busy before we get started in earnest!

If you’re new to Effy, you can find out more about her here.

Hold on now, Effy! What’s Art Witchery?

Art Witchery is the use of visual arts as a way to change our consciousness in accordance with our will. In other words, art witchery uses art to celebrate the beauty of life, to express gratitude and devotion to the divine, and to create desired changes in our lives through concentrated will. Art Witches work with colour, shape, symbol, and practice to raise energy, which we direct towards the things we wish to attain for ourselves and the world. These may be as simple as changing our habits (walk more, smoke less), or as complicated as working for justice. Whatever you bring to the table can be ‘art witched’ through creative practice, and Effy will teach you how.**

Moonshine is ‘non-denominational’, which means that there is no one tradition of witchery taught or upheld in this class. You can also come to the class with your own spiritual practices and beliefs and adapt the content to suit you. While we use the words ‘witchery’ and ‘witch’ lightly in this class, we undertake these practices reverently, understanding that magic *works* even if we don’t necessarily understand how.

This class is experiential. This means you don’t have to come in with ‘belief’ or ‘faith’ in the process. You will grow in understanding how this works as you work it, and as you learn, research, and practice, you will be creating your own special brand of art witchery – in short, your own ‘tradition’, specifically designed by and for *you*.

In Moonshine 2019, we will journey together for an entire year, during which we will explore:

  • Mixed media art and art journaling as a way to commune with and attune to the divine as we understand it.
  • Accessing our inner wisdom through creative practice.
  • Working with the phases of the moon, moon lore, correspondences, and calendrical, agricultural, and astrological lore to imbue our work (and lives) with meaning.
  • The use of various oracles (tarot, ogham, runes, animal, etc.) as portals into our creative practice.
  • Ritual & ceremony as ways to support our creative practice.
  • The continued development of a coven of art witches who will be friends for life (and maybe beyond!).

There are two art projects offered per month – one, which will be time lapsed, is a new moon vow journaling project and the other, a full moon mixed media painting tutorial that can be done either in the art journal (my favourite way to work) or on any other substrate (canvas, wood panel, loose watercolour paper, etc.) that you desire.

There is also a lot of writing offered each month. Based on 30+ years experience with developing and maintaining a creative spiritual practice, this writing can be considered the ‘class manual’. It will come to you in printable form, so you can compile it throughout the year.

There are also worksheets designed to get you thinking and making connections on your own.

Moonshine is regularly priced at $207 for the entire year, but purchase before December 31st, and you can have it for $180.

What You Get!!

Every calendar month throughout the year, you will receive several PDFs that will contain musings, suggested activities, bits and pieces of poetry and magic, prompts to inspire your journaling practice, correspondences to use in your practice (such as moon names, holy days, colours, herbs, relevant practices, etc.). These PDFs, collectively known as ‘the art witch primer’ can be printed, hole punched, and put in a binder as a keepsake of your journey through the year with me. It can also be used year after year as a jumping off point into your creative and spiritual practices.

Collect all the PDFs, and compile your own notes, and you will have a complete “Art Witch Book Of Shadows” that you can take to a printer at the end of year and have bound if you like.

New for 2019 – Monthly live virtual gatherings (dates are TBD) in which Effy talks you through the energies that are present that month, and shares whatever seems relevant at the time. These are supplemental to the PDFs. Bring a beverage and your notebook.

These will take place in our Facebook Group but will be available for replay.

Time lapsed for your entertainment and inspiration, this will come to you in the form of a quick video that includes instructions on how to create a new moon vow art journal spread, and then a demo of how I made mine. This mini ritual that includes ceremony and art as a way to make magic will be uploaded to your classroom before each new moon throughout the year.

These painting sessions will sometimes focus on the astrological sign the new moon is ‘in’, but sometimes, they will focus on other energies, or be rendered entirely intuitively. The focus for us at new moon is the attainment of our desires.

This part of the class will include a PDF with musings about the specific energies that are present on that new moon, and personal writing about how I’m using those energies in the attainment of my own desires. It will also include an invitation to join me on Facebook for a new moon check in thread, where we will make our vows together as a coven of art witches. Those who prefer not to engage on Facebook will be invited to send me their vows via email so that I can witness them (but only if you like! This is completely optional).

One new mixed media art journaling session meant to explore and employ the energies that are present at the full moon, (which will change from moon to moon) as well as any other correspondences that resonate or come up for us. Includes videos, (all downloadable!) and a full colour PDF walkthrough with supplies lists and step-by-step instructions. In these videos, you will find that only the boring bits are time lapsed. The rest will be real time, and include my thoughts as I’m working. These painting sessions will sometimes focus on the astrological sign the moon is in as it waxes full, but sometimes, they will focus on other energies, or be rendered entirely intuitively. The focus for us at full moon is fulfilment and release.

BONUS: You will also find these videos offered as a quick-to-digest time lapsed format for inspiration & entertainment for those times when you find yourself just wanting to commune with the work without investing the time it takes to view the full length lesson.

In 2016, I designed a 52 card (ATC sized) oracle deck that is now available to my students as a printable PDF. Print them, mount them on pretty paper, cut them out, and voila! The Moonshine Oracle!

These cards work not only as oracles (like Tarot), but also as jumping off points for your own art journaling sessions. Draw a card, see how it moves you, and create from there.

All cards are made with art I made throughout 2016.

AND THERE’S MORE!

This year, I will also be offering you a free seat in Journal52 2018, which includes 52 additional ATC sized cards + written musings, prompts, and quotes. Here’s a sampling of what you’ll get each week in that class.

Here’s An Example of What Students Did With The Cards Last Year

Jennifer Field backed her cards in pretty paper, and edged them in gold.

Sarah Trumpp printed hers on cardstock, backed them in pretty paper, and rounded the corners.

Our Coven is where we gather, commune, make our vows, talk witchery, share our work and whatever else is going on with us. Established in 2018, we had 208 members in the group, and I expect there be a similar number this year. The group is active, lively, supportive, honest, and global which means any time, day or night, there is someone around.

There are those who have suggested that membership in this coven is worth the price of admission all on its own, but don’t take my word for it. Here are what some of your future coven mates are saying about the group, and the class!

TESTIMONIALS

I came to moonshine drawn by the idea of working with the energies of the moon, and what I found was so much more. Not only does Effy provide a textbook worth of both educational and personal material, the coven of like-minded individuals you will find is incredibly special. It is a “place” where intuition reigns and no feeling needs to be justified. A place where your presence, warts and all, will be honoured and seen and held. It is not therapy, but rather a long, hydrating drink for the soul. I’ll be back in 2019 for sure. – April Laramey

Moonshine 2018 morphed from an on-line class of outstanding lessons from a superb teacher to a “field” of non-judgemental, loving and compassionate support for our struggles of all kinds, artistic and personal; great humour, positive suggestions rather than advice, and sharing of interests beyond the actual lessons. The way the group has grown is nothing short of magical—it isn’t just a group! it’s family! – Jill Ebsworth

I’m not at all witchy but I was completely bewitched by Effy and totally warmed by the safe haven of Moonshine this year. An amazing art and journalling program that’s wonderfully outside of the norm. This spiritual agnostic learned a great deal (am still learning!) and was shown some amazing art techniques but most importantly, I found a happy and safe place. This year has been a difficult struggle and though I haven’t always finished the art, just seeing the wonderful journal pages, the sharing and friendly camaraderie of the group has been like a healing balm. I’m in next year for sure! – Sal Sheibe

This course has been a real awakening. I didn’t quite know which path I wanted to travel on and I can get quite muddled and indecisive about what I am doing and why. Moonshine has given me focus. I have seen things in a different way and found out things about myself and which direction I want to move in that I really didn’t realise. It is a wonderfully supportive class with a caring and nurturing community as well as an awesome teacher who is with you at every step. This truly is magical. – Lesley Larcombe

Moonshine is, the greatest investment EVER. Not just because of the art. Because it takes you through a soul-trek, one where you find/rediscover your shiny. I have laughed, cried, thrown paint and glitter and loved on the coven so hard this year! You’re able to get messy, gritty and real – and for the first time in a long time I have made it through to the other side with a smile on my face – because the magicks does that for you. It’s more than just value for money, more than just an art course – it’s literally a container full of moonshine. A beautiful, life affirming, funny, messy, delightful and wild ride. – Rachel Murphy

Moonshine 2018 started out as a group of individuals and quickly evolved into more than a family…a coven of wildlings. It was an epic class, where Effy overdelivered because that’s the kind of teacher she is. 2019 promises to be just as incredible. I have learned so much about myself in 2018. Come as you are to Effy’s fire, find out what you are made of and dive deep into the mystery that is life. There is magic afoot and it is within you, too – Amy Carden

When I signed up for Moonshine, I thought it would be a great way into my art journal on each new and full moon. A way to just be more aware of the cycles and make pretty art around cyclical themes. However, it was SO MUCH more! Moonshine is a container for some serious art witchery – cycling with the moon and the themes of each month, making meaningful art, and doing some serious and sometimes even playful soul work. And then there is the coven of witches – a safe and gentle landing place where we can be held, understood and witnessed just as we are, warts and all. I am so glad I took the plunge this year, and I look forward to cycling with the moon again next year! – Shinjini Mehrotra

Moonshine is pure magic on so many levels: journal making, art making, art journalling, moon cycling, information gathering and self discovery. Skim the surface or delve as deep as you like. Effy’s knowledge is vast and her support and guidance and the support of other participants is unwavering and all-encompassing. The love and power of the facebook group is palpable and buoyant. Terrific value–I have a book just from Effy’s pdfs alone which are full of pointers and prompts. Will definitely be joining Moonshine 2019. I can’t recommend this course enough. – Sue Blott

Moonshine is one of those classes that is more than just videos and PDFs and supply lists – it’s an experience. It’s magic and community and being present in your life. It’s making intentions and throwing paint and feeling gratitude. It’s research and association. It’s love. It’s absolutely love.

That’s not to say that there is no room to just take the lessons and make the art – it can absolutely be a filling of the journal with pretty spreads. To do that, though, is to lose SO MUCH of the magic of the class, which is a deep dive into your magical roots, your ancestors, your own associations with the zodiac, the elements, and the way you walk through the world. It’s a chance to take your inner wild child by the hand and lead her into the moonlight.

You will absolutely not regret signing up. I’d pay more than twice the price for this offering in a heartbeat. – Sarah Trumpp

Moonshine is almost not about art. I mean, it IS about art. But it’s mostly about MAKING art, not making ART, and how and why matters way more than what. It’s about connections to other people who are using non-words to explore desire and direction and meaning; it’s about magic and possibility and trying new things and knowing what you intend to do but being willing to step into the fog when it comes to actual techniques. I have strayed far, far from the path in this class, and still find the container and the company deeply valuable, and the reminders that art is, of course, much more than just art. – Leela Sinha

Moonshine found me-it was an impulse purchase- and through the lessons and the people I’ve met in Moonshine, I have really started to find myself. To feel like I am meeting myself on the page, in my art, in the process of making art. I have found how powerful journalling is for me, how big an impact it makes and I have learned so much about ways I can combine this with art. I have seen how cycling with the moon connects with me and helps me be connected. There is so much in moonshine, some months I’ve touched the surface, some months I have dived deep, every month the group of people that make it have been a safe, accepting place to explore and ponder and question and art. This year could have been a really hard one-it’s had death, pain, sorrow and could have overwhelmed me but moonshine, journalling and art have been the roots that are helping me grow into the person I’ve always wanted to be. – Rachel Kentish

Moonshine has been a lovely pathway to meeting myself through art journaling. Effy provides the opportunity to dive deep into the exploration of what makes you tick, what floats your boat, and what might be holding you back from your wild and wonderful dreams, all while giving solid instruction in technique. The cycles and energies of the moon provide the structure for for the class, but your own heart’s desire is the only limit to how far you take it. Effy leads the Moonshine community with an eye on acceptance and respect. Come for the art, stay for the love. – Judith Leibart

This course has brought me from being totally oblivious about why I was doing art to understanding my motivation as an artist and a person. I can’t imagine being without it. It has taught me that it is okay if my art is different. It is okay if I am different. I have found myself through this course. – Linda Brumbach

New This Year! Purchase blocks of 30 or 60 minutes to spend with me one on one, face to face, over live video chat. There will be a limited number of these blocks of time available each month, and they will be offered for $30 (for the half hour) and $60 (for the full hour) a piece. I will be opening up my calendar at the beginning of each month, and once these blocks of time are gone, they’re gone. Use these however you like – get a quick reading, talk over your creative practice, brainstorm with me on an issue you’re having, ask questions you might not feel comfortable asking in the group. The time is yours to use as you see fit.

*For those who are seeking a more ‘secular’ experience that focuses on meeting ourselves as we are on the page, self-care, and regular creative practice, Book Of Days 2019 may be a better choice for you. For those of you looking to create or enhance your own spiritual practice, learn how to use art as a tool for transformation on a spiritual level, commune with the divine through effort as offering, or track the phases of the moon & seasons of the year through art, this is definitely for you.

**Please note: I will not be teaching the misappropriated cultures or practices of indigenous or oppressed peoples in this class. All practices will be sourced ethically, and you will be encouraged to do the same.
