Souls Together Rejoicing in Expressive Arts and Magic

STREAM is a sacred creative art school dedicated to the nurturance of authentic self expression and the Rainbow Way of Beauty.

STREAM was birthed on the Spring Equinox in 1999. My sister Karen Russo and myself began meeting with a wondrous group of young girls in my studio in the country. Many magical years followed in which we met one full day each month to create, to play and to share our joyful spirits. For many years I opened the doors of STREAM to the larger community of women in Eugene, Oregon. We created in a wonderful studio that overflowed with inspiration. Deep and sacred moments were shared as magnificent mandalas were birthed thru women who flowed within the river of their inner visions.

All classes are guided by Mara Berendt Friedman.
