This 1.5 hour 1:1 session is designed to apply the power of the art process to find an answer to a tricky situation in your life. Sometimes it is challenging to make the right decision or see an alternative way when things get out of control. This can be a personal, financial, professional, or relationship challenge where you feel that you are stuck wasting too much time and mental energy trying to move forward but end up getting nowhere.
What the experience would look like?
We would start with an informal chat with a cup of tea, coffee or cacao to find out a bit more about you and your intention. This would help me to connect with you on both mental and spiritual levels. I then would suggest an art medium that I feel could be relevant to take you on a totally tailored and safe art journey. It could involve (but is not limited to) intuitive drawing, painting, mixing colours, collage, playing with materials, creative writing, photography etc. We are all different and I the way I choose to work with you is by intuition only while channeling creative energy on the day. This would allow a deep dive into your personal situation using an experimental art process. You will be invited to switch your busy mind off and enter a state of creative flow to connect with your inner voice.
Who is this session for?
This session would suit individuals who believe in the powerful link between art, science, and spirituality open to experiments on their self-awareness journey. The inspiration behind this experience was to create a safe space for emotional expression and reflection to clear up confusion, and clouded thoughts. Once more balanced, we are more capable to make better decisions and handle any situation in life. If any of this resonates, I invite you to give it a try.
What would we create as a result of this experience?
It is unlikely that you would create a masterpiece but that is not what we aim for at all. We would rather focus on the true expression of your inner voice using the art-making process as a way to do so. The outcome of this powerful experience might not be an exact answer to your challenge straight away. Instead, it can occur in a form of energy release, an alternative perspective, an original insightful thought, or a clearer direction to move forward.
What is included in the price?
Price is calculated based on the Artist’s union rates covering the time and expertise required for creative education. All materials are included too. There is also a welcome drink provided on arrival.
What are the requirements?
All that is needed - is your curiosity, open mind, and willingness to trust the process. You don’t need any previous creative experience to take a part. Do not worry at all if your English is not fluent - we will top it up with the visual language instead. Just bring yourself and your curiosity to my art studio. Once you booked the session - get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to get details and arrange a date/time that would work for all.
Regular slots are available from 11.00am - 12.30pm / 2pm - 3.30pm and 5pm-6.30pm during the week and on weekends. Check the available dates while booking.
