Calm & Creative: A Watercolor Art Class with Aromatherapy

May 2, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Join us for a fun afternoon as we gather online to cultivate a state of peace and creativity. This class is for EVERYONE…sign up today!

About this Event

We invite you to step into the present moment, unplug from your everyday concerns, let the distractions fall away and focus on caring for yourself. You don’t need to be an expert to enjoy painting! Every one of us lived like artists as children and we have the ability to bring back this powerful form of expression and self-healing.

This workshop will consist of:

Short Mediation – brief meditation to bring peace and inspire our sense of creativity

Watercolor Lesson – perfect for beginners. Art can heal us, inspire us, and alter our brain chemistry. You’ll be able to get the hang of the watercolors, mixing colors, and Lauren Bogosian teach you how to create beautiful leaves.

Aromatherapy – throughout the watercolor lesson we will use pure, essential oils to balance, harmonize, and promote wellness and vitality in the body|mind|spirit for our art.

If you have watercolor paints and paper at home – great! If not, we have listed a few supplies we trust and use below.

For the aromatherapy, to experience the potent powers of essential oils throughout the class, we will mail you FREE samples! Once you sign up you’ll receive an email wit the next steps 🙂
