Creating the Beloved

  • honored wish

    A creativity workshop for everyone. We'll employ the use of collage and paint to create images of The Beloved. Your Beloved might be a child, partner, or your own higher Self. The Beloved might even be a dream you're calling forth.

    CREATING THE BELOVED is scheduled for Saturday, June 18th, 10 am - 3 pm.

    I supply acrylic paint, glue, plastic putty knives, artist painting/collage boards, magazines, workshop space, & instruction. *YOU bring* paint brushes, scissors, and special images you have collected.

    STRATEGY: I will demonstrate collage techniques, teach how to work with warm and cool colors, and how to create space within a composition. Then I lead you from a meditation to visualization of your Beloved. We transition into creating individual collages. No prior art experience is necessary!

    You'll complete a beautiful collage of The Beloved, appropriate for an altar or other sacred space. The image can be metaphorical, symbolic, and/or completely abstract, and incorporate totem animals, photographs, and other textured materials. You'll leave this workshop with a bunch of new techniques and a completed collage plus a ton of inspiration. See images below.

           

    The cost for this workshop is $70 per person.

    *Brushes can be bought cheaply at Penco in Mpls - under $3 each. Please call or email seacat63@gmail.com with questions.

    This series was inspired by my wish to raise awareness for clean water. My intention is to create healing - inside our bodies - and for bodies of water that suffer from pollution. I will be donating a portion of my profits from this series to oceanic conservation via MissionBlue.org.
