Body and Soul Painting @ Marika's Art Studio, Queen Anne, Seattle

Body and Soul Painting @ Marika's Art Studio, Queen Anne, Seattle
Painting is movement like yoga or dancing. From our fingers to our feet, our bodies are the spirit’s tools for expression and painting is an important archival medium for our potential. I created Body and Soul Painting to share that joy and connection with you. It is a simple class for beginner painters and beyond. I invite you to paint with me free from judgment in my supportive and welcoming home and studio. Our movement is for long-time movers or people who want to move more. It can be as gentle or as intense as you want it to be.
  • First, we will warm the body up with creative movement to relieve unwanted tension and explore the connection between your body and painting.
  • Then, we will settle into a gentle meditation to center your thinking and source(s) of inspiration.
  • After that, lets paint! We will use the intuitive painting techniques and fun, forgiving acrylics to explore and amplify your inner voice.
This process is fun, flowing, completely personal and a gentle way to explore painting. After three hours, you will have unique intuitive painting that expresses your body and soul. And a body and soul that feels great.

What’s Included: All painting supplies, painting aprons, yoga mats and light refreshments.

Weather permitting, this workshop will be held in my garden. If the weather is less than ideal, we will move the painting into  my art studio.

Please Bring: Please wear comfortable clothes that you can move and stretch in. I will provide aprons to protect your clothes but leave your best work-out outfits at home. Prepare to get a little messy.
