Art for Healing & Transformation

Making art helps us to focus and be present.  It helps express our intense feelings beyond words, thoughts, and moves us into deeper ways of knowing our minds. This class works with meditation and music and guides with abstract lines, shapes and colors.  The result is a calming of our anxieties, allowing our inner guidance to lead us through the pains and challenges of the external world.  Drawing and painting exercise the mind to help you see the world in a different light. Beyond learning to draw and paint objects, it’s also a path to raise your awareness and awaken internal energies.  All materials included. We will be able paint throughout the Campout, with a large canvas available near the Dance Floor, to express ourselves in color and form.  We can each take a piece of this home with us at the closing ceremony.
