Did you know (incase you needed a reminder) that ART is a vehicle for meditation and self-connection!
One of the reasons it is so powerful is that it fosters acceptance. Creating art is a type of meditation, an active training of the mind that increases awareness that helps acceptance of feelings and thoughts without judgment. This contributes to a relaxed of body and mind. That is why we always emphasise process over outcome, although we are here as your expert guides (with years of training and experience) to assist you in having the best possible experience and technical support!
We are so excited to share a new season of workshops! January has been full of putting plans into action and we're thrilled to introduce the expertise of x3 new guest instructors!
