Body and Soul Painting

“The body is a device to calculate the astronomy of the spirit.” – Rumi

NEW!

 

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 that 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.  I scale it to be as gentle or as intense as you want it to be.

What we’ll do

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.
