“Artful Dreamers Studio changed my life! I was stuck in so many areas of my life and Nadine’s process painting helped me immensely . I started my journey almost 15 months ago and my life has shifted dramatically in only the most positive ways. Artful Dreamers is the safest most supportive place for self-exploration and deep healing. It is a place where you have permission to meet yourself wherever you are….with full permission to let go! Be messy, be wild, creative, funny, sad, afraid, whatever it is – it’s okay to FEEL! I’ve made life-long friends at Artful Dreamers and when I walk through those doors, I feel like I’ve come home.”
Thank you, Nadine for this beautiful offering! Debbie

“The circles of women around us weave invisible nets of love that carry us when we’re week and sing with us when we are strong”. – Sark

Creativity for YOUR Soul : Mandala Painting

Mandalas are ancient symbols for harmony and wholeness

Come explore your soul through mandala painting.

(There are many ways to create a mandala painting!)

The practice of painting art is joyful, healing & meditative.

A guided meditation will assist YOU in contacting YOUR creative source, the inner artist that resides in YOU.

The mandala can be a path of self-discovery and artistic development.

Usually a mandala has a center point & has the impact of bringing people who create & view mandalas to their center and a place of wholeness & healing.

We will create a community mandala and share the energy & then YOU will paint your own individual mandala.

No experience is necessary. Lots of CREATIVE FREEDOM & guidance if wanted.

All art supplies will be provided. $40

Healing Soul Doll @ Artful Dreamers Studio
Mar 15 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

* The HEALING SOUL DOLL is made with intention and love and helps you relate to your inner wise woman.
* The HEALING SOUL DOLL is like a personal guide that you create for yourself.
She symbolizes the personal characteristics you need in your life now.

Process
* Define your purpose for the HEALING SOUL DOLL…what does she represent?
*Her body can be made from driftwood, sticks & dressed with symbols and objects from nature or you may choose to make a soft body from canvas or fabric and stuff it with fiberfill. You can then paint or sew objects on it.

(Let’s trust the process and let go of preconceived notions of how your doll should look and assist the form it wishes to take!)

Materials
Paints, brushes, glitter, sequins, feathers, buttons, glue, scissors, yarn, raffia, needles, thread, beads…
You can sew photographs or poetry or journal entries directly on to the doll, or hide prayers, crystals & intentions within the doll. (bring what you would like)

The making of the HEALING SOUL DOLL is a deeply personal ritual to bring to form a part of yourself that is emerging from your unconscious.
We will:
* Work on turning off the inner critic
* Relax and “allow” it to come
* Have fun with this process, rather than “make” it happen
* Let it flow out of you without filtering

ALL SUPPLIES PROVIDED $40
