Creative Art Workshop

Sunday 7th July 2019

37 Rewa Rewa Valley - Tairua


“Every child is an artist. The problem is how remain an artist once we grow up” – Pablo Picasso.

This fun workshop is designed to get you out of your conscious mind and into your subconscious, creative mind using simple painting techniques. You might not necessarily create a "masterpiece" but you will take away valuable techniques that you can use to express yourself authentically and work through thoughts and emotions that might otherwise not have an outlet. No previous skill or experience required.

About the facilitator:
Charlene is a passionate artist and yoga teacher with a keen interest in natural wellness. She firmly believes that being creative is hugely important to our emotional and mental wellness and seeks to open up this often unexplored channel in others.

$30 cash on the day (includes all art materials)

For more information and to book in, email Charlene on Charlenescottartist@gmail.com, phone 0226959736 or visit their Facebook Page.
