Did you used to love being creative as a kid? But then you stopped because, for some reason you no longer felt you were "good enough" at it.
Do you long to paint? Are you put off by most art classes, worried that they will be all judgey and competitive?
Are you tempted but sitting on the fence because, actually the idea of standing in front of a blank canvas excites and terrifies you in equal measure?
This is not like any other art class - it will free your creativity forever!
Painting, mark making, enjoying being creative - this is easily available for all of us RIGHT NOW. It's not anything to do with "good" or even "bad" Do you enjoy the process? That is the important question. Sometimes all we need is permission.
"I'd say, this is perfect for you if you've always wanted to paint or been curious to try painting on a bigger scale, but intimidated by the blank canvas. Moyra will get you over that hurdle in the first 5 minutes! She's really lovely and enthusiastic and down-to-earth and will give you lots of quick and easy tips and tricks to get painting and mark making and layering and being braver than you ever thought you could be!" - Leesa, participant
Process art is revolutionary and anyone can do it. And once you learn to let go of expectations (and I have various techniques to help you do this!!) you can discover that creativity and painting is playful, joyous and so deeply nourishing for the soul you will wonder why you let it lie dormant for so long. Come paint again.
“More than a painting or creativity class, this weekend invites you to embrace and push through the ugliness, loss and fear that is an inevitable part of life into the full beauty, power and magic of being yourself. I find all the decisions I make at the canvas are reflected back to me in a positive way during the following months in all other aspects of my life. I find myself letting go of old habits and trying new things. I love the exquisite, healing, challenging and fun space Moyra creates. It’s like nothing I’ve experienced elsewhere which is why I keep coming back “ - Mel, participant (more than once!)
Wild Painting Weekend is an opportunity for you to really flex your creative wings and fly! Held in a beautiful creative spacious and light art studio, you can paint it large. There is an element of instruction but at the same time, total freedom to creative as you please. There is no judgement, this is just for you to experiment and play and see what comes out. As one participant says its a relaxed space with permission to "be yourself, to trust yourself, to listen to yourself"
Come and conquer any fear you have of the blank canvas, leave with your soul nourished yet longing for more!
