Painting with PlantsElder Apothecary
September 30th, 2 to 3:30 pm
A journey into intuitive painting, aided by the energies of flower essences.
In this workshop, you will learn how to create, and work with, flower essences and integrate them into an intuitive painting practice. We will explore intuitive painting as a creative practice that can aid in unblocking our creative flow and reconnecting with our unique artistic expression. Through a guided exercise, you’ll create your very own intuitive painting infused with the energies of your choice of flower essences.
Workshop fee includes all materials to create a painting to mark the experience of opening up to your creativity with the support of plants. While we will have a selection of powerful flower essences available to work with, you are welcome to bring your own should there be any you’d like to incorporate into your work. All are welcome no matter what your experience, skill, medium or identification as an artist.
