July 27, 2021

$General 20/WVCAC Members 25


Get in touch with your artistic intuition & a sense of energetic “flow” as we explore art making as a form of connection to self & nature. In this workshop we will be contemplating how the “architecture” of the natural world supports the flow of energy. We will use the repeating rhythms & patterns found in the natural world, such as branches, rivers, leaf veins, ripples in water, & so on, as inspiration for our creations.
This fun & exploratory workshop uses techniques such as drawing & painting with media including watercolour, gouache & coloured pencils.

Workshop will be online using Zoom.

Levels: Open to all levels of experience
Ages: Youth – Adult
