About this Event
Let it Flow: intuitive painting with water colour workshop
Artist and educator, Taryn Lee, will be teaching a 2 hour workshop to support creativity and mindfulness.
Participants will be introduced to the magical, vibrant world of watercolour. Participants will learn about materials and tools, then try some basic techniques that highlight the special properties of the medium. We will explore a variety of guided painting activities that allow us time to slow down, practice being in the moment, quiet our inner critic and tune into our intuition. After the guided painting exercises, participants will create their own expressive watercolour painting while experimenting with colours, brushstrokes, shapes and unexpected outcomes.
- Practice self-expression and self-care through creative activities
- Encourage play, experimentation and curiosity
- Cultivate connections and engagement
- Promote a supportive community for sharing art and personal insights
This workshop is open to all ages and no previous art-making experience is required.
Pre-registration is required as space is limited.
