Join us for a fun and educational expressive arts workshop.

No previous art experience is needed and all art materials are supplied by the instructor. Just bring yourself!

Nature & Art

Working with a variety of art materials, students will create art based on landscape and active imagination.

Active imagination is a form of meditation that develops connection to the unconscious and the creative self through images.

Moving from the inside to outside, you will find a special spot or focus in nature – a blossoming tree, a rock with lichen, a mountain view – with which you resonate.

Then, Jane Shoenfeld will guide you in several art processes.

This workshop will include tools to access the unconscious and basics on making a landscape drawing that expresses your connection to what you see!
