The general meeting begins at 7:00PM followed by a presentation by Lynzie Kronheim. Lynzie has over 20 years experience as a Holistic Health Practitioner, Master Healer, Life & Grief Coach, and Art Teacher.. She has spent years teaching spiritual and creative classes to all walks of life including babies, teens, couples, elders both individually and in large groups. Lynzie teaches classes in The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path To Higher Creativity based on a self-help book by American author Julia Cameron. The book was written to help people with artistic creative recovery, which teaches techniques and exercises to assist people in gaining self-confidence in harnessing their creative talents and skills.


Lynzie helps people find their passion, develop their creativity and look at blocks an artist might have in their artistic process.   She states, “Self expression though painting nature plain-air inspires energy, light and color. Each painting presses me to see how I will interpret each moment of light.” She paints in pastels, oil and watercolor. Her work has shown in California, Oregon and Florida.
