New: Soul Painting Workshop Early Autumn 2019 – Sold Out
These workshops once announced tend to sell out quickly! I will be adding a new depth to my teaching this time. This workshop is good for both beginners or intermediate skill level. One day we will paint botanicals in an intuitive mixed media style, the next day we will deepen your style on what we have discovered through the first day. You will have completed 2 paintings by the end of our time together. Explore painting and mixed media in an intuitive and intentional style that is healing, joyful, and freeing for yourself in this sweet weekend workshop!
September 7 + 8, 2019
Come gather on my land and paint in my studio to experience the sweetness of Appalachian Spring and in the magic of Asheville! Come a day early or stay later and soak it all in. Ooooh this is truly my favorite way to gather and share with you!
*Catered lunch included on both days, along with refreshments, wine, tea, snacks and magic making gifts*
Come stay in magical and alive Asheville, NC in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mtns and enjoy an enriching weekend workshop with Alena! Our mini-painting retreat will take place at Alena’s homestead, working studio, and piece of land heaven. Last retreat we had an incredible time and many of the ladies stayed hours late applying gold and silver temporary tattoos and drinking wine/tea! We will paint outside, circle, do ritual, and work in my workshop/studio space. The estate is 20 minutes from downtown Asheville. If there is time, the group can decide on their own if they wish to go out downtown for dinner and take in sights.
The workshop will take commence Saturday morning – Sunday in the late afternoon. You will want to secure your own lodging based on your budget needs and desires! Asheville boasts a variety of hotels, BnB’s (some in historic Montford, which is walking distance to downtown), or you could also go the AirBnB or VRBO or hostel route. (Alena can always help you decide if you wish to contact her). For dinner (as an option), you can go out to eat at the delicious and varied restaurants in town! The downtown area absolutely comes alive in the evening on the weekends – with artists, buskers, and street performers! It truly is such pure delight to live in this fine city (named Happiest City in America and top place to visit in USA by Frommers and Good Morning America). Expect the unexpected and allow surprise and fascination to occur for yourself for this long weekend! It’s going to be so such a delight. (Please note: lodging and all meals besides lunch not included in workshop fee).
About the workshop:
In this mini-retreat I will be teaching in a new way not yet fully shared before! . Through guided exercises and visual examples, you will choose a symbolic symbol of animal totem, flower(s), or tree to represent your intention and heart’s desire. You will be able to draw and paint your subject matter along with painting with a variety of media. You will create a consistent series. There is much power and healing that comes from painting in this way, which can serve as a potent and loving symbol and reminder for your life that emanates truth and purity. All materials will be included for a small fee, except surfaces to paint on (you will bring those based on Alena’s suggestions). We will be working on both easels and doing some table work. At the end of the experience, you will walk away with one to two treasured paintings that not only have personal meaning, but are full of technique-based learning along with tapping into your intuition and soul-guides. This workshop is amazing for building depth to your portfolio, while increasing your knowledge on how to make gorgeous work. Alena will be sharing a lot of her tips and secrets with you, all the while going deep into our sweet soul work.
