Come and express your self and play with paint!
In 2016, I began my expressive arts journey. My partner was ill and I needed a space just for me. This space was somewhere safe, where I could show up to play, create and nourish myself. I found that if I focused on painting, making collage or simply playing with colours, my mind eased and I found joy. After my partner passed away, art cradled me. Along with my spiritual practice, it has been a constant resource and allows to express myself, through the emotional tides of life, love and loss.
Colour has always been my element. My Asian mother wore bright magenta, purple and gold.
I taught crystal healing for 20 years and now I love to create abstract paintings with watercolours, acrylics, inks and markers.
I will provide a safe space, as I have for all my healing and facilitating since 1992.
You are allowed to show up and to embrace your creativity just where you are.
I failed my art 'A' level at school and dabbled a little in my 20s, but it wasn't until I began art journalling and collage, that I realised I didn't have to be amazing at drawing and painting; I just needed to give myself permission to show up, play, explore and fall in love with the process.My invitation is to drop all the barriers, pick up a brush and indulge in some playtime!
Our next Zoom session is on Sunday 26th FEBRUARY at 2pm - 5pm. Please email me for supply list and details.
Investment for Zoom workshop is £25/£30/£35
You will be supported through warm ups and creating art, choosing juicy colours and playing with paint, and collage if you like.
There is no "right" or "wrong" and it doesn't matter if you have never painted before or are a seasoned painter.
You'll be completely supported: I'll guide you through centring yourself, starting to make marks on the page and then sharing tips and encouragement as you loosen up and play.
At the moment, for everyone's safety, workshops are offered on Zoom.
You need to have Zoom downloaded, preferably on a PC or laptop for a larger screen.
Zoom sessions - a small women-only group
These will include a supply list with the materials you need to purchase.
You will be part of a small group of women, who are all there to play, paint and nurture themselves too.
Sessions are held on some Sundays - email me for dates and to book.
NEXT ZOOM MEET UP: Sunday 26th FEBRUARY 2023 at 2pm GMT, UK TIME
Please allow 2.5 hours. Investment sliding scale £25/30/35
A few testimonials from expressive arts participants:
'I want to express my gratitude to you for introducing me to the wonderful creative world of art.
I was always useless at school as I couldn't draw a "picture". You workshops really inspire me and give me confidence to put paint to paper and explore, play and create. You have an empathetic and spiritual energy, which flows through you, even through Zoom!'
Helen, ex Department Head, City and Islington College, London
