Do you desire a creative space in which to become more aligned with what you deeply long for?
Join Christine for this beautiful 4-week journey where you will experience art-making as a tool for self-discovery and personal growth, within a light-filled studio, in supportive community setting. During this series, you will be introduced to the therapeutic benefits of working with various art mediums- such as inks, collage-making & more while exploring the ways in which you are changing and evolving at this juncture in your life. As you explore through the art mediums, you will also develop affirmations that support your growth and unfolding.
At the end of each session you will have a new art-making tool for self-awareness as well and pieces of your own art to support and uplift your journey.
