Join Rachel Chase, Expressive Arts Facilitator and Creativity Coach for this memorable and transformative experience at the beautiful Atlantic Center for the Arts main campus! Enjoy a day of slowing down, taking time to see with clarity, and give pause to experience the preciousness of your unique gifts. Connect with the moment. Draw out your inner wisdom, your muse, your soul’s voice. You are Artist. Your life is your art, your creation… whatever your media; be it fine art or any way of expressing artistry – crafty homemaking, cooking, gardening, martial arts, parenting, making music, or even singing in the shower.
Bring your heart longing to embrace the next flow and give your imaginal cells the juice they need for fertile growth. Trust Rachel to safely guide your personal process of clearing your blocks and feeling open to express yourself freely. Play with clay to bring form to your voice’s inner call. Draw our your inner vision through spontaneous drawing. Create beautiful collages with word art. Let the renewal of Spring carry your Creative Spirit forward. Move your body with gentle movements, and enjoy special meditations for artists. Experience group sharing and support. Bring your vulnerability to the fore and let your courageous heart be free.
Think of this experience (with other brave artists) as your personal catapult to charge your fire and bring out your inner expressive nature in powerful and insightful ways. The glorious energy of Atlantic Center for the Arts will provide us with the space of grace we need to incubate your visions and nourish them with a new spark of light to illuminate their fullest expression. This mindfulness-based creativity workshop will leave you feeling inspired and ready to birth your next project, take the next step in your endeavors, and let your truth be seen/heard/known/felt.
