Relax, enjoy and learn something new as you explore the wonder of Watercolour painting with Iris Hill.
Watercolour Wellbeing classes explore free flowing painting techniques and breathing meditations to nurture your creativity and inspire calm. In this session we take inspiration from seasonal botanicals, using pastel and watercolour to express our artistry. Settle into serenity as we celebrate vibrant Summer energy and colour palettes. Two things that are wonderful for your wellbeing, Art and Yoga come together in one workshop. This is a seated session, all movement will have the support of a chair and painting will take place up at a table.
In this workshop we will explore:
Watercolours and alternative art tools
Moving your body, and understanding how warming up before you paint can be beneficial to your artwork
Meditation that encourages us to connect to our creativity and quieten our 'inner critic'
Breathing techniques that will help you relax and declutter your mind
Letting go of perfection and trusting the process
Our intentions, setting out to create rather than focusing on the end result
Making mistakes, allowing for those ‘beautiful opps’ moments to come through
All levels of creative and yoga experience are welcome. Whether you are a practising artist seeking fresh inspiration and flow or are curious to tap into the abundance of creativity that already resides within you.
Please dress for mess and light movement
