  1. i would like to win i am new to painting. i am a pensioner of 66 and would be honnoured

  2. I would love to join 21 secrets as I am on a journey to discover my artistic voice after more than 50 years silence!
    I love Drawing in the Soul, learning during every lesson, so much still to explore – more than 21 secrets!

  3. First of all thank you for the opportunity to win a free spot!
    So why: because I‘m so terribly curious to learn new skills and simply said „art is my live“ ?

  4. I would love to participate in 21 secrets. Thank you ma’am for the opportunity to be in the running. I hope I win and learn new skills to use in my art journey.

  5. I am anxious to learn from Juna…her March 2017 ‘Soul’ class was my first art class after many; many years. It was a ‘breath of fresh air’ that awakened that desire in my heart to learn more from a practical and creative teacher that is Juna..

  6. I can give 22 secrets why I would love to win this giveaway. First, I have never won a class, I want to learn from professional and talented artists….and 21 more secrets

  7. I’m curious about 21 secrets. I’m inspired by your lesson on LFI 2017. Would love to join you in this class. Just shared on facebook. 😀

  8. Thank you Juna. I have recently been doing some online classes with mixed media and portrait painting. I an living them all. Hoeven, since I just retired in August I’m learning that’s is a bit more difficult to live on a tight budget than I expected and will be more restricted in enrolling on future classes. So, any chance of receiving the gift of a free class would be most associated. Not to menon that at had saves my sanity over the post two months with family and personal illnesses taking their toll on my time. It seems that art is the calm break in my day that is keeping me smiling. Thank you so much.

  9. Hou van al het mooie wat de cursussen te bieden heeft want: Art is something that makes you breathe with a different kind of happiness.

  10. I’ve watched some of your videos and viewing samples of your work, and I’m reallly impressed – love your teaching style! I’m learning, and believe I could benefit from this. Hoping to win!

  11. Would love to win a spot… this looks like a fabulous course 21 artists… would be a fabulous learning opportunity…

  12. Ok, here goes, this is scary, but bear with me… Why I want to win a spot on 21 secrets… well, I need your help. I’m stuck. There’s so much I want to talk about, so much in my head, so many things I wish I could write or talk about, but it’s not working. I’m a visual person, I think in images, in metaphores. But the images I collect on the internet, just doesn’t seem to say all I want to say. So I need help to express myself through painting. I don’t want to put out this “woe is me” story, but I do have feelings that need to be expressed. And I love Art as a medium. One can put so many feelings into Art.. I want to be able to “talk to people” to tell them my story, without having to use words. I would like to, how do you say it in English, convey (?) my message, to put my feelings out there, in colour, in shape, in paintings. And to give people a glimpse into my inner world, to be out there, without being “out there”. I want to make a connection, to feel that it’s ok to feel and to share those feelings. I want to be free. And to be able to reach out, to touch people, without bringing them down. I want to be able to paint and to let it all out, in a positive way. I’m only an amateur, and still have a lot to learn, but I’ve found people connect to art in a way I’ve never expierenced before. I need to learn more, I need to reach out, and I think this course could help me do just that, and heal me in the process. Thank you.

  13. I would be thrilled to win a spot in this amazing course. I love drawing and painting face and would love to learn and improve my style. Shared on my FB page.

  14. Always wanted to do this workshop to try and further develop my own art skills. I know I will not be up to the standard of most but I create for me, to fill my soul and make me happy. What has held me back you say??? Well the timing really funds are precious this time of the year and though the cost I think is very reasonable the currency exchange to an Aussie Dollar is just horrid…anyway one day I will do it regardless and I cannot wait! Thanks for the chance to win.

  15. Love your art and I love doing art. I have been under a lot of stress and art is a way to tell your story. Would love to learn from the wonderful teachers on the course. Shared on fb.

  16. I would like to win a spot – I guess you could say Art save me – it helps me to relax at the end of a day when my son falls asleep. I am a 24/7 caregiver to him. He is dx’d with profound mental retardation, severe autism and traumatic brain injury. Being a caregiver for 23 years has taken a toll on me. I believe it is stress that caused my own breast cancer. Going through it for a 2nd round…. who knew what was in store for me…. If I would not have found art – I don’t think I would be here…..It takes me away to a place where I forget about all the pain….

  17. Ik ben nooit heel gelukkig in de give aways. Toch maar weer een gokje wagen. Jouw lessen zijn altijd geweldig Juna. Hopelijk zit het nu eens mee.

  18. I just love these types of classes. I do art work on my own but taking a long term class is so inspiring. I recently took your Drawing in the Soul class and I loved it! I would love to take another one of your lessons and thanks so much for this giveaway. I posted this giveaway on FB and I am already signed up for your newsletter.

  19. Wow what an amazing offer this is. So sad I didn’t hear about this earlier, being the last one? If I had to tell the my story we would sit here forever going through 9 years of very intense stories. I woukd rather uplift my life by being creative and being able to loose myself in art and the healing process. No need to ponder on the negative… Just positivity all the way forward. It would be an honor to win this space xxx

  20. One of the main reasons is that this is the last of 21 Secrets (or so I heard), and I’ve never done it – always had too much on my plate. I’ve lost my way a bit this year with my art. I mean well, and always feel like painting, but I have had to take on too much work due to the enormous amounts of repairs we need doing to our old country house (it’s subsiding, and the roof is falling in!). Add to that the fact I have to care for my mother, who is 87, and that I am an only child with nobody to help me, and you might see why I have fallen out of the habit of doing art. 21 Secrets sounds just like the kind of fun course that will get me going again. Thanks for this opportunity, Juna.

  21. Hi Juna
    I’ve just found you via a wonderful friend. We lost a beautiful, colourful and inspiring friend recently and the art world lost a truly talented artist. She encouraged so many people to create something each day just for the love of creating and learning. I love that your art comes from the soul. It would be great to learn more through 21 Secrets.

  22. I would love the opportunity to do this course it looks absolutely fabulous , To be able to learn from so many gifted artist would be a dream come true

  23. Hi Juna, I would love to have the opportunity to join you on this amazing workshop, I made a promise to myself after a beautiful friend died recently, that I would carry on trying to make my art better, as she inspired me in so many ways to keep going, and take every opportunity in life. I hope that I will one day be able to inspire others as she still continues to do. xxx

  24. after caring for my husband during his recovery from cancer these last two years, I could do with some time just to find me again.

  25. I would love to join the group. Soon I will be moving (Kazachstan) for my husband his work. I will be getting a lot of time for myself. Would like to spend my time with this beautiful course. All the luck for everybody❤️

  26. I started drawing when I was 9 years old and continued through high school. I took every art class my small school offered and loved every one! After school, I married and had children. My art was sporadic. I drew for others as special gifts or if I had some extra time here and there I would draw for myself. Now I have taken early retirement and feel excited about drawing, exploring other kinds of art and I’d like to learn techniques in mixed media. I have lost my confidence after all these years and would like to get it back. This is the happiest time in my life and I would like to express it through my art. Thank you, for giving us this chance to win a place in this valuable course. I have read through the information posted by the instructors and I think it’s going to be a wonderful journey of self discovery and self expression through art. I would love to take this journey!

  27. Since I have taken lessons with some of the teachers, I believe this would be a great experience.
    Greetings from Mexico

  28. I would love the opportunity to work through these lessons at my own pace; sometimes my hours are erratic. I’ve just started to get back to making art, working through some things in therapy, and I think this would be a great way to push myself forward on both fronts.

  29. I am having replacement surgery on my shoulder after already having rotator cuff surgery and I am also an amputee. This would be a great thing for me to help pass the healing time which will take at least 6 weeks before any movement of my shoulder is allowed. Plus I’d like to tell my story thru my art.
    PUFF ?

  30. This would be facinsting to begin telling my own story and truth through art journaling. Having these amazing artists would help me through this journey.

  31. I would love to join 21 secrets because I want to explore other methods of self exploration through art. All the instructors you have lined up are fabulous at teaching new skills and giving different methods of using the same item. I’d love to participate. Thank you so much for the opportunity.

  32. Thank you for this opportunity for your giveaway. I love 21 Secrets and I love your work—that’s why it’s important to me to join this last offering of 21 Secrets.

  33. I have participated in several past 21 Secrets and already know it’s awesome, so I would love to have this very last session filled with amazing teachers! Thank you <3

  34. I have just volunteered my time to work with women who have managed to get them selves out of the sex trade, off the street, they are in transitional housing and some have even managed to get their own place. They now want to give back and encourage others in the same boat. I have volunteered to work with them, empower their community of staff and workers and clients through art to build resilience. I am open to receiving any tools I can find for the journey. I am a chaplain and a community activist. Your course would be a powerful tool for these women to tell their story and to celebrate where they have come from and where they are going. My mom used to say ask for what you need. I believe this course would help me t better serve.

  35. This sounds like an awesome and different workshop with all you amazing artists/teachers. It would be a privilege to participate. Thanks for the chance! ??? (shared on fb & twitter)

  36. Everything Connie Solera is involved with is gold! I’ve taken her 21 Secrets class twice and I’ve been a guest teacher and I can’t get enough! I would love to win this last edition because the guest teacher line up looks fabulous!!!!

  37. My journey of journalling and book making and sharing stories all started with a 21 Secrets workshop. Now I have also started the journey on my long held wish to paint portraits. I would love to join in on this last one but due to personal reasons am not able to afford workshop this time. Thank you for this opportunity of a chance to win xx

  38. Juna, I have known your art and taken your course, and absolutely love your work. 21 secrets was one of the first things I purchased on my art journaling journey and it has provided a basis for me to learn to play, give myself permission to make mistakes, and many other things. I have each one produced and I know this is the last one Connie is doing, so it’s bittersweet. Winning a spot would make it even sweeter. Thanks for the opportunity. Shared on FB.

  39. Thank you Juna for this chance of winning a free spot even if I am already enrolled! Looking forward for your lesson since your find your girls trully beautifull!

  40. 21 Secrets looks such a fabulous mix of art journaling and mixed media storytelling… all the things that I love. Thank you for this opportunity to at a chance to participate.

  41. I would love to win this. I am always trying to build my skills and the lineup for this class looks amazing. Fingers crossed.

  42. Thank you for this opportunity. Shared on Facebook. I want to share my story creatively and artistically.

  43. I would love to win a spot cos I love Juna Biagioni! Thanks for the chance. Lots of love and hugs, Anna

  44. The reason that I want to be a part of this is that I have recently started Art Journaling to help heal from losing my husband 2 years ago (Sept 19, 2015). The year of 2015 was a REALLY rough year for us. From Feb 1, 2015 to Sept 19, we lost our apartment, our only vehicle, had to re-home all of our pets (this one almost killed me), lost most of our belongings (remember we lost our only vehicle, so we had to move our belongings in a POD and that is limited space), and then my husband (who had turned 53 on July 30, 2015) unexpectedly passed away on the 19th of Sept. I am also fighting MS. I love learning new techniques. This would be the perfect thing to help me.

  45. I would love to learn some secrets! I feel as though I’m stuck and wonder if it’s just me or that nagging harsh critic in my head. I love to listen to Juna’s voice and her videos are inspiring and have lead me to make some of my best art. I want to keep pushing ahead and so I would be very grateful for a chance to win a free spot in 21 Secrets. I have shared this on Facebook and Twitter.

  46. I would love to join because it is something new and exciting. I’ve been having a rough oregnancy so basically on bed rest and I’m out of ideas on how to occupy myself. ?

  47. Juna has been instrumental in awakening my passion for painting the human face. Her work is so inspiring and she is a terrific teacher. I have been remembering the skills I forgot during decades away from art-making. Another class with Juna would be a great blessing.

  48. Shared on Facebook and Twitter. I’ve been working on expanding my knowledge and skill by studying other artist’s work. This would be a great opportunity to meet many more artists and learn how they create what they do.

  49. Having access to great teachers and different styles, perspectives and supplies in art is inspiring – I would love to be inspired and coached in my art journey.

  50. Shared on Pinterest. I’d love to take this course because I too have a story to tell and I’m on a mission to develop my own style so I can go forth and inspire others.

  51. I wouldt love to win this! I wanna go back more to my art journal, so im not so focussed on the outcome and enjoy more the emotions i wanna express and play! ?

  52. I have had the privilege of following Juna’s work and then doing her course.
    Her portraits touch me deeply as I see the soul of the drawing/ painting.
    Also I learnt so much and my ability has increased, but if I could achieve even a tenth of what Juna draws I would be a lucky lady.
    I would absolutely love to win a place. Being on Disability benefit makes it hard to afford courses but I wish luck to all who have entered.

  53. Would love to learn how to tell my story through art. I’ve always journaled and used words to share my story and would like to now do it through art, and it’s been a bit challenging to process how that looks. Thanks for the opportunity to win a spot, Juna <3

  54. My story has many twists and turns. Would love to put it in art. Thank you for the opportunity

  55. Hi Juna, I would love to learn more about story telling with my art, thank you! Shared on Twitter!

  56. It would stretch me to the limits to be a part of this exciting online workshop. Just what I need. Thank you for the chance.

  57. What a way this would be to start my art journaling adventure. I’ve done a little but this could be the helping hand to get me further discovering my soul.

  58. What a great give-away this is!
    After a major set back in my health the past few months and not being able to create and paint, I hope to slowly start again and winning a spot in 21 Secrets would be just perfect to get into the flow again!

  59. Hi Juna, I’ve shared on Facebook (I hope) what a fabulous opportunity! Sooooo many talented artist generously giving their time and Secrets,……..I would love to win a place. Fingers crossed.

  63. I am a sexual assault victim advocate in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, We really don’t have much when it comes to recreation, we cant shop outside the base gates and online everything is our lifeline. I promised myself when I came here 10 months ago all by myself that I would focus my free time in becoming a better artist. This is also a big part of self care for me as the career path I’ve chosen can be very stressful at times. I would love to win the free spot in 21 secrets! Thank you!

  75. Thanks for the chance to win a spot! I have a story to tell, of fighting chronic post mastectomy pain syndrome. It is a permanent condition resulting from breast cancer treatments.

Visual storytelling is an inviting theme, and your participation as an instructor makes it that much better. Finding My True Name is exquisite, and I’d love the opportunity to learn your lesson as well as the lessons from the other instructors.

Thus, now is the time to learn and do
