Registration is closed

Levels: Beginner - Advanced
Ages: Youth - Adult

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.

Workshop will be online using Zoom.
