Class 1

Expressive Art

(one time per year)

This course is for everybody! No drawing/painting skills require. The method is to concentrate on the present moment, on the process, listen to yourself, to your body, relax and enjoy! No rules in the Expressive Art! The process of creation

is emphasized rather than the final product. Nevertheless, we create finished pictures along with many various exercises using different medium and surfaces. (We have two different sessions  - you can choose both or only one.)
