About The Event
This playful workshop has been created to give you an opportunity to let go of expectations and have some fun with cutting loose and tapping into your creativity no matter your level of experience with water colour or painting. All from the comfort of your own home or space.
In collaboration with artist, art teacher and NLP coach, Lynn Shoemaker, we have created a workshop that isn't 'just a painting class'. We'll learn learn how to play with water colour but more importantly we'll learn how to allow ourselves to let go of expectations and simply allow ourselves to create.

Why finger painting?
By keeping it simple you don't have to think about your paint brushes and all sorts of fancy stuff
Get back to basics without all the fancy stuff like we did as kids
Remember when every painting, no matter how we created it, was a master piece to put on the fridge - let's play there
Because getting your hands dirty and covered in paint is fun
What you'll need:
Watercolors of any type - kids set will do
Water color paper - you can use regular but it will get ripples
Container that will hold water
Paper towels or old cloth or T-shirt to wipe fingers on
Paint masking agent
miscellaneous sized containers with some type of rim
Piece of cardboard or similar to lean on
What to expect
Maximum of 10 people playing so that you can each be supported personally
Pixie will facilitate the welcome, introduction and meet your fabulous community of fellow creative ladies
We will then do a short meditation to bring you into the space ready for Lynn to guide us thorugh the practicalities of working with water colour and most importantly letting go and having fun with it.
Lynne has always loved art. She's drawn since she was a kid and kept doing art classes in high school. When she went to college she was undecided but chose graphic design at first and then switched to Art education. She taught for prior to having her son and and has continued to do art to this day be it drawing, painting, 3-D or textiles.
