The Tree of Life is an ancient mystical symbol appearing in various cultures from the Mayans to the Celts, from Buddhism to Nordic mythology. On a personal level, the Tree of Life also represents our personal development, uniqueness and individual beauty. Just like us, all trees begin life the same, yet as they grow, they weather nature’s forces and develop in their own one-of-a-kind way.
This workshop gives you an opportunity to express that uniqueness and beauty by painting a small canvas with your very own Tree of Life image, using a stylistic approach like the one pictured here.
We will start with a guided meditation to take you within and “visit your Tree”. Once you have seen its beautiful colours and the unique form it takes, you will be free to play and experiment with acrylic paints, metallic inks, markers and various collage items to bring your Tree’s image alive on a small canvas.
The goal of this process is not to create a realistic tree but a symbolic tree … a reflection of yourself. Join me for an afternoon of creativity and fun discovering what your tree looks like!
This is an in-person workshop and limited to 5 participants. Masks may be requested to be worn if Covid protocols are put in place again or if a participant requires it.
