I (Vicki Skinner - aka "THE Sarong Goddess") created this blog in 2007 to share DETAILED Finds•Lists•Info•Events•Experiences to help bring more EASE to people living in, visiting or thinking of moving to Costa Rica since DETAILS are NOT easy to find!
I’m NOT an expert (an "expert" 2 ME knows 101%-NOT me). I believe in sharin info•helping where I can! And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise. At least you have some basic info to get you started.
Better yet - do you have extra time on your hands & looking for a volunteer project? Since this blog is a labor of love & RARELY does anyone share a donation (even though MANY have said how much it's helped them), I could REALLY use help updating info. Spanish speakers ESPECIALLY welcome since my VicLish can be somewhat limited at times!!

Has my blog helped in any way? Helped find something•brought more EASE? More exposure or business?
I welcome you to show YOUR appreciation for my efforts!
(see below other ways to show your appreciation)
The easiest way is with PAYPAL - Attn: LivingLifeInCostaRica@gmail.com
(you do NOT need to have a PayPal account to do this - just a credit or debit card)
Do YOU have/know of a Business•Event•News•Place•Things 4 Sale•Rent to add? Email:

• Amazon.com or GoDaddy.com Credit•Gift Certificate (attn: SarongGoddess@gmail.com)
• Something else to share?? A gift certificate or invite for your business? I'm open!! (at times I'll add other things here that I'm seeking)

iPad Digital Art Workshops with Digital Artist Mandy McMahan - in Costa Rica

iPad Digital Art Workshopswith Digital Artist - Mandy McMahan

Coming to Costa Rica in February


Whether you are an artist, or simply have an iPad and a desire to learn to use it as a tool to express yourself artistically, this is the workshop for you!

San Ramon

Wednesday - February 27, 2013
(if they got more people interested and a location, they still could possibly get a class together over in the Escazu area so inquire)

$80 for the full day workshop, including lunch.

Digital artist, Mandy McMahan, leads the class in interactive, step-by-step approaches and makes using the iPad technologically approachable, intellectually stimulating, and fun.

Using the iPad as a mobile art studio, participants will create their own digital fine art works using a combination of up to 6 drawing and painting apps.

Using your iPad as a mobile art studio you will:
Create your own unique fine art, collage and photo altered pieces.
    use iPad painting and drawing apps both individually and in tandem
    navigate through importing and exporting source material.
    learn methods for sharing your art on the internet.
    learn how to take your art from your iPad to your wall.

All ages welcome.
Materials (you bring): Any model iPad; an iTunes account and knowledge of downloading apps.

    Sharing tools, techniques and approaches for the creation of beautiful art is one of the most satisfying things I can do in this lifetime.”
    Mandy McMahan

A few words from Jim White:
    Hi, I am Mandy’s partner and husband. I am truly excited about assisting Mandy with her iPad Art workshops.
    I have been in the training and personal development business for 38 years and have worked in about 18 countries in designing and facilitating workshops and seminars focused on personal growth, leadership development and skills acquisition.
    Without bias, when Mandy conducted her first iPad workshops, I was truly amazed at her technical mastery, warm teaching presence and her ability to make the iPad fully accessible. The students left the class having confidently created beautiful and satisfying fine art pieces.

    Please join us for a fun few hours where you will take your artistic skills to the next level-digitally.

To learn more about Mandy and to see more of her art, visit her website, Mandy’s Digital Art Place. 

Paul and Gloria Yeatman
(please tell them Vicki Connected you!!)

PLEASE "SHARE" this with EVERYONE you know that has an iPad and would enjoy such a class!!!
