About the event

Learn how to trust your creativity, release emotion and create intuitive abstract watercolour paintings. You will be surprised and thrilled to be taught as well as experience the tools that Sophie uses to get into a creative flow. Sophie will teach you that you don’t need to wait until inspiration shows up but rather that you can manifest creativity through regulating yourself with calming and soothing practices such as breathwork, dancing combined with shaking and drawing. These will all help with creating the desired connection to self.

You will be taken on an art experience that sees you feel filled with clarity and inspiration to create abstract watercolour landscapes under Sophie’s calm guidance.

If you feel apprehensive about creating in watercolour Sophie will show you how to let go of that fear by connecting to yourself first. Then your creativity will shine.

If you feel excited and inspired to create but simply don’t know how the watercolour process works, Sophie will show you how to capture that passion and channel it into trusting that you might make mistakes, but that it is all part of the process and that surrendering to that mistake is where your magic starts to unfold in a painting.

You will take home 1 - 2 finished abstract watercolour paintings.

Lunch, refreshments and all materials provided. 

Who it’s for:

Anyone seeking a creative, inclusive art experience

A beginner artist with no or very little experience in watercolours

An artist established in another area but wanting to explore a different medium and learn tools for channeling creativity

Ages 15+
