Connecting Art & Spirit: Mindful Markmaking
Description: Within each spirit there is a connection to something greater than yourself and the soul of the artist is the sanctuary where creativity and connection abide. This art retreat is designed to implement expressive ways of encountering your soul’s journey with the use of mixed media, non-traditional mark-making tools, as well as traditional ones. Each day there will be a morning meditation, a poetry reading to jump start your creativity and a demo using a variety of art techniques in order to create journal pages for a simple book construction. Participants will strengthen their artistic selves and discover creative ways of nurturing their spirit.
Cost: $95 USD
The class is presented live and has no recordings.
Choose either October 16, 17, 18 OR November 13, 14, 15. 11 AM-1 PM EST
