7 weeks for $222.00 + HST
In this 7 week online art adventure we will look at the energy centres of the human body known as Chakras and use that information as a jumping off point and framework for creating our journaling and visual art pieces.
You do not need to have any previous art experience - just the desire to connect and create. We will use a mix of journalling, movement, breath, and mindfulness as an opening into self, from there we bring to life and make our energy tangible through our creations.
This is a beautiful way to explore your own state of being, getting to know areas where you flow easily, and the areas where you resist letting go, and from there gently play in that space, on the edge of our discomfort.
Creative expression provides the tangible practice of being truly present, relinquishing what we think we know - trusting, accepting the moment as is, while remaining open to what could be. The only requirement besides some art supplies are an open heart and mind.
The Painting From The Soul art classes have been exactly what my soul was craving. I have wanted to “learn how to paint” but the other paint experiences I have had where I had to paint something specific felt so rigid. I felt tense in the process, worried about “getting it right". Renata is so amazing at creating the space to paint, blending spiritual teachings and intentions into the experience. I felt like my soul was free to express itself. I was always so surprised by what came out and the incredible energy of the paintings. I am so grateful for the experience.
