I was so privileged recently to be able to spend a few days with an amazing group who wanted to embrace their creative side, find their inner child and be free ! Ranging from 19 years old to 73 years old, with a few first time painters joining a few who had painted before, we unleashed our inner artist and immersed ourselves in to 5 days of all things creative.
We painted together, we danced together, we sang together and even cried together as the creative process began to nourish us. We wrote poetry and Haikus whilst listening to the lovely sound of the gong, we practiced daily yoga and Kundalini yoga, we meditated down by the river, we ate amazing vegetarian food and shared stories by the fire in the evening.
We really did let the creative process nourish our soul.
Here are some photos from the studio and our sketchbook work to get us started
As the process unfolded we learnt to ‘Stay loose’, ‘Watch snails’, ‘Hug Trees’, ‘Make friends with Freedom’, ‘Believe in Magic’ and ‘TO BE FREE !’
We finished the week with an exhibition of our work
Art Group 2018 and their soul paintings
