Artistic expression offers the opportunity for spiritual growth, transformation and healing. This monthly open watercolor studio is a chance to play and learn new techniques without worrying about perfection or finished product. Meet new friends and practice listening to your heart as you paint. No experience necessary; Mary is a gentle and encouraging teacher!
June’s theme:
During the summer months of June, July and August, we will create a series of still life paintings that reflect the sweet joys of summer. In the words of the poet John O’Donohue, we will “take time to celebrate the quiet miracles that seek no attention.” Our celebration will include that which can be found in your garden and home (flowers, herbs, vegetables) treasured keepsakes, yard sale finds, old vases or teacups. Painting from life allows us to express our own unique vision. We also learn to “see” what’s in front of us. Whimsy, imagination and expression with line and color will be encouraged.
