Meet Brian Kasstle & Carolyn Dube of 21 SECRETS Fall!


From now until October 1st, every Friday here at Dirty Footprints Studio, Hali Karla the new 21 SECRETS Creative Director, is honoring the amazing teachers of 21 SECRETS Fall  by personally introducing each of them to you here! We are certain that you will love these artists as much as we do! Be sure to check out each artist’s links & come join us in 21 SECRETS Fall this October!  To see past teachers in this series just click HERE.

Brian Kasstle’s art journal spreads always make my heart beat a little faster. They are like raw, earthy narratives of human experience – with snippets of revealed clues that make me want to know more. What I love about Brian is that he shows up to his practice so wholeheartedly and shares from that same honest place. I also think it’s fantastic that he offers some of his live art journaling classes just for men, too (that’s something you don’t see every day!). What a treat to have him joining us in 21 Secrets with his workshop, Internal Artifacts!

Carolyn Dube describes herself as a little kid trapped in an adult body, with an incurable addiction to color – and I have to say, you can feel that joy permeating from her even through a computer screen! She has a magical way of bringing a smile to all who spend time with what she shares – maybe it’s because she really knows how to stay committed to her muse in a Bright Light sort of way. Plus, as a teacher, she has a knack for breaking down the process into bite-size steps. I can’t think of a better person to get playful with as she guides us through her lesson, Freedom From Fear!
