Art and Soul retreat at the Othona Community Essex
6 November @ 15:00 - 10 November @ 16:00
Led by Genevieve Collier
An invitation to get immersed in three days of artmaking for personal reflection and to explore what within you needs to be expressed.
Art making can be soothing and offer respite, it can ignite sparks of imagination, it can put you in touch with deep feelings. Art skills or being able to draw are not important for this retreat. You might make marks and images that make no sense to anybody else but the experience of making them has meaning for you. This is a space to connect with yourself through art making, in the company of a small group.
A range of art materials will be provided, and you are welcome to bring any favourite materials or half-completed projects.
We will come together for morning group sessions involving simple, guided tasks and creative exercises to help find personal starting points. The afternoons will be run as an ‘open studio’ with space to carry on developing your own images and projects. You may want to spend some of this time going for walks, resting, sketching, reflecting.
