Soul Painting 
3 hours = $60 
8 hours = $140 (includes lunch)
Sliding scale to be negotiated.

In this class, our painting exploration will be designed to tap into our deeper intuition and develop a deeper understanding of art as spiritual practice. We will work with gentle prompts and techniques to move color and create textures across paper and canvas, bypassing the ego’s desire to create something “tangible” and “realistic.” We will take small, periodic breaks to read passages from spiritual writers, to breath deeply, and bring our minds into the moment to cultivate mindfulness. Open to spiritual seekers and artists of all levels. No previous painting experience required.
