Painting intuitively connects us to our source of creativity, often bringing about transformative changes. Come have fun with brushes of flowing water color on large sheets of white paper, discovering your own unique imagery. By focusing on the painting process, without observing a subject or even having anything in mind, we can explore color, form, and gesture, guided by an inner sense of direction, free from expectations. Guided visualization summons a body-centered, nonverbal approach. Marks suggest shapes, and images begin to emerge. A nurturing environment supports taking risks, opening to possibilities, and staying present through creative blocks. Coming together in a circle offers opportunities for sharing, non-judgementally, and for learning ways to continue painting at home.
