Visualizing Home: A Place of Safety and Joy (Meditation & Collage Workshop)

No matter what ‘home’ may mean to you, the idea will inspire us during a guided meditation and a visual exploration of ‘home’ in watercolors, colored pencils, and magazine cutouts. By the end of the workshop, you’ll have created a one-of-a-kind artwork communicating a place of safety and joy. No experience needed.

Martina Sestakova, your instructor, will create a sample artwork combining colored pencils, watercolors, and magazine cutouts.
