w/ Kery Maddison, Art Therapist/Psychotherapist Candidate.

What we’ll be doing on Saturday September 21st:
guided meditation and intention setting
mindful painting session
enjoy wine, tea and snacks
Fellow artist and Art Therapist/Psychotherapist candidate, Kery Maddison will guide you in creating your own unique painting around the theme of pour and play. Pouring, puddling, dripping… the defining characteristic of this acrylic painting technique is that you don’t apply the paint with a brush or palette knife, but rather use gravity to move the paint across a canvas. The results are unlike anything you can get with a brush: fluid flows of paint without any brush marks or texture.
Limited space to 12 people. This event is always popular and sells out quickly, so register today to hold your spot!
Snacks, Wine, Tea + All Materials Provided.
