About the workshop:
The workshop aim is to liberate you from your fear of ‘The Great White Canvas,’ and enjoy the journey of creating.
Have you ever wanted to explore yourself and your creativity, but never had the time, space or confidence to do so? Do you wish to break out of painting in the same style? Do you experience blocks when it comes to creating? Are you keen to understand more about yourself? Have you wanted to paint, but felt you lacked the ability?
In this transformational art workshop, we work with expanding and unblocking your creativity, as well as using art as a tool to reach a deeper level of self-awareness. We also examine our approach to creating and the symbolic mirror behind what we create. Being aware of this gives our artistic expression greater depth and meaning.
