Touch Drawing is the sacred process of creating images from your heart. It is a simple process of drawing with your fingers on a painted surface. The pressure of your fingertips on the page forms images on the underside of the tissue paper. Your hands are extensions of the soul, moving in response to the sensations of the movement. It opens a channel for creative expression and self-reflection. Touch Drawing has endless possibilities as a tool for therapy, creativity and spiritual awareness. Each workshop is guided by music and chant, creating a relaxing and meditative atmosphere in which to create. The images created are a visual record of your inner process. This technique does not require any prior artistic experience. Touch Drawing is a beneficial process for anyone who wants to increase their creativity including artists, social workers, health care practitioners, educators and intuitive people.

By nature, collage is a playful process, and can lead to more original and expressive ideas.

Paper collage is a wonderful way to re-think design through shape and color, to generate new ideas, take risks within a small format, produce quick studies for larger works - and the collages are genuine art works in their own right! 

A perfect class for anyone who wants to create strong compositions and explore new color ideas. This workshop is suitable for artists who work with any medium, abstract to realism.
