*NEW ART WORKSHOP
This Workshop is for everybody and for all of you. For beginners. For those who are going through a difficult time or life stage and for those who are not and life seems to be ticking along ‘normally’.
This Workshop is NOT for you, if you are wanting to learn technique based art approaches. This is also not an individualised, nor structured Art Therapy session.
The Focus of this Workshop is on the process of creating in an art journal or on watercolour paper. Whilst art supplies and materials will be present. The true work of this workshop is in the application of ‘Art as Life Medicine’. In being fully present in the moment, noticing the marks and images you have created, feeling into it and enjoying the process.
Whilst insights and understandings often appear during this Workshop; that too, is not the focus or the aim. Too much analysis will dampen creativity and in fact, will create more fodder for the ego to become entangled; keeping you away from the language of soul.
Soul Awake, Soul Embrace, Soul Expression is a free form Art Journaling Workshop where you get to play with various art materials and supplies, to express and commune with your soul. Inherent within the process of the creative act and ‘being’ creative, is connecting with your inner calm and peace; as well as seeing your joy or troubles objectively from a distance. You will be encouraged to feel, rather than fix anything. So there is nothing for you to ‘do’. No right or wrong way to approach this Workshop. It merely offers you a place of freedom to express yourself.
Minimal structure will be imparted by the Workshop facilitator. Rather you will be guided through a general process with the freedom and encouragement to explore and play. Art symbols and shapes will briefly be discussed at the commencement of the Workshop and various other forms of creativity will be on offer to enhance the experience of playful exploration ie drums, percussion instruments, costumes, music.
This is going to be YUMMY! It won’t be your traditional Art Workshop. It will have very little structure in fact. More guidance, to help your Soul speak to you in a free and expressive way. It will be a gentle, divine – yet – fun and nurturing experience. We will have music playing, the kettle boiling, opportunity for you to go quietly within or get up and express yourself in movement. Our souls have many ways of connecting with us. Very intuitive and deeply connecting with the language of our soul, through line, colour, shape and expression. I will go gentle with you I promise.
A 2 hour Workshop at a cost of $100 p/person (bring your own art journal or purchase one on the day for $10).
* See Calendar for dates scheduled.
*NB: Technique based Workshops are also currently being developed and will be on offer shortly. However, all technique based Workshops will also have the element of Art as Life Medicine & connecting with your soul woven through them, as a basic framework of the experience. Such is the frame of reference of the Art Workshop Facilitator. It is recommended that you participate in a Soul Awake, Soul Embrace, Soul Expression Workshop first, prior to embarking on a technique-based Workshop; however, it is not essential. Please talk to the facilitator about your needs prior to booking.
