'Have Fun Exploring' Creative Workshops
Designed to guide participants through the creative process
Beginners and those developing their own style are encouraged to:
"Nurturing awareness of our inner creative space."
In her facilitated workshops Chris encourages participants to develop a conscious, mindful approach to their practice; to nurture an awareness of, and respect for, their personal inner creative space. Learning to embrace and enjoy ‘stillness’ - that stress-free zone associated with getting lost in the creative process.
Over a series of artworks shops participants are introduced to the processes involved in painting and given opportunities to explore their creativity; to be aware of the inner dialogue that is part of the creative process. The boundary between personal and shared: the subliminal connection between inner being and communal space.
