What would you paint if . . . you had no fear? What would you paint if . . . there were no judgement or critique of your work? What would you paint if . . . there were no one watching? What would you paint if . . . you didn't know what would appear? What would you paint if . . .
Imagine . . . Tapping into the source of your imagination and intuition . . . taking a mini-break, an escape to your own world where time melts away . . . connecting with your inner child - the one who is relaxed, spontaneous, joyful . . . finding your authentic expression in a supportive and non-judgemental environment . . . experiencing joy from your own freedom of expression . . . embracing the 'not knowing' and leaping into your own journey, step-by-step. You can!
What is Process Painting?
It's an opportunity to connect with your imagination and your intuition! We are all born with a creative spirit and expressing ourselves freely is as natural as say - drawing a picture with a crayon, singing in the shower or choosing what to wear! Even if we don't pursue 'artistic' avenues, we are creative in so many simple and diverse ways every day. But, sometimes, we get a bit 'stuck' or blocked and we would like to open the door to our creative spirit a little wider! It's SO easy to do and the benefits are numerous!
Research has shown that people who regularly practice process painting see a range of benefits such as calmness, relaxation, energy and boosted creativity in everyday life. It starts with a pure white field of possibility and within minutes you find yourself - painting and playing around with brushes and colour!
Process painting happens in a series of at least four sessions of 1.5 or two hours each session. Pricing based on number of people in the group.
What is Facilitated Collage?
This is a super-fun and interesting way to express ourselves through multi-media. It's a combination of paint, colour, paper, glue, pictures, words . . . with surprising results. Like process painting, it's a little journey of self-discovery that can be relaxing, exciting, calming . . . it's unique for each person, but always fun time well spent with fellow explorers. This will remind you how much you enjoyed paint, scissors and glue when you were a kid!
Facilitated collage sessions are at least two hours in length.
