A Year of Rumi

Hello! I’m Effy Wild, and I am a mixed media arts teacher and creativity facilitator. I like to think of myself as a champion for your inner artist, especially in the area of creativity as a spiritual practice.

I’ve been teaching on line since 2010, but Rumi has been a source of inspiration in my creative life for as long as I can remember. After a year of teaching “Mixed Tape Monthly”, which was a music & lyrics driven art journaling e-course that ended in October 2018, I have decided to shift gears into a quieter offering.

A Year Of Rumi will be a year long program beginning on December 7th, 2018, and will feature one new mixed media art journaling lesson per month with a selected Rumi quote as our guide. At the end of the year, we will have created 12 mixed media paintings that we can then scan and turn into a calendar! Instructions will be provided for that at the very end of our 12 months together.

While we will be working within the realm of “Art Journaling”, these paintings will be done on loose bound watercolour paper, which once scanned and preserved for use in our calendar, can be ‘tipped’ or taped in to our art journals, or bound into a collection at the end of the year.

This offering is suitable for beginners through advanced mixed media artists, since you are always welcome to adapt every lesson to suit your skill level. While supplies will be suggested, substitutions will be offered as well.

A Year Of Rumi can be enjoyed two ways – either as a year long workshop that you purchase all at once, or as an offering at the $10 or $5 tier on my Patreon

On Patreon

At the $10 level, you will get 1 full length tutorial per month sent directly to your email address along with all of the other content released on Patreon during that month.This tutorial will come to you in downloadable PDF format with links to all the videos (which are also downloadable), images of the finished piece, supplies list, and thorough pictorial step-by-step instructions. Here is a sample of my teaching style from Mixed Tape. Note that the PDFs with linked videos will follow this exact format in A Year Of Rumi.

At the $5 level, you will get the lesson as a captioned speed painting video (downloadable) along with all of the other content released on Patreon during that month. Here is a sample of a speed painting with captions. Note that the speed paintings will follow this exact format in A year Of Rumi.

Note that in order to get all 12 lessons, you will need to remain a Patron at either the $10 or $5 level for the entire year. If you’d just like to dip in and out for the year, you can do that as well and adjust your patronage at any time.
