A new opportunity has come along - a place for a three day painting retreat this May in peaceful surroundings, with good food, good people, and lots of time to paint! I've had this idea percolating on the back burner for quite a while and now it's time has come.
Art means a lot to many people. Humans strive to make art with whatever materials are available. It will be interesting to both talk about that and notice the dynamic a little more consciously. Silk Painting is an ideal medium for this. It's easy enough to engage those of us who have no background in formal art and offers a wide range of possibilities for those who do.
I think a good definition of Art is something that connects us with the best part of ourselves. That inner part is strong, loving, and is the part that recognizes Beauty. Why not encourage that connection by noticing and appreciating it when it happens, and by setting things up so it can happen as often as possible!
See dates and more detail about the Retreat on the Schedule page. Wouldn't it be nice to come?
