PDF Flyer

Beauty inspires, nourishes, heals, and restores. Join us for a day of art-making, self care and enriching connections with creative women as we dwell in the spacious retreat of a tranquil studio surrounded by mountains and sky. Through art-making and mindfulness explorations, we will breathe, move, draw, sculpt, write, and shape artful encounters with the landscape around us. Art-making from this soulful orientation awakens our senses, enlivens our hearts and expands our perception of beauty. As we slow down, resting into the rhythms of nature, we discover images, poetry and creative practices to support us in artfully embodying our everyday lives.

Optional outdoor art-making and lunch al fresco will complement the day. Art materials and snacks provided. Bring a journal or sketchbook, pen or pencil, and a simple lunch. No previous art or mindfulness experience required.

Location: Polarity Barn, 6482 Dick Woods Rd, Charlottesville, VA

Fee: Early Bird: $150 (before 4/19); Regular: $175 (after 4/19)
