Last school holidays Play/Paint workshop
The Play/Paint workshop or Painting Game is a session where everyone is encouraged to listen to their intuition. It has been created to keep us away from any pressure, to allow our inner world to come out. It is the perfect place to allow unexpressed emotions to find their place on the canvas.
Participants love making a mess especially one they don't have to clean after!!
People from 3-106 years old come and paint together, allowing the older ones to be inspired by the younger’s spontaneity and enthusiasm and the younger ones look up to the older ones for calm and concentration.
Everyone is focussed. The basic rules are respect and non-judgement of ourselves and others.
At the Play/Paint we leave our creations in the studio to allow ourselves to create purely from our need for expression, not our need for approval.
Many adults think their kids will have a hard time coping with this idea. However, children actually understand and embrace the concept of creating for the joy and pleasure this activity gives them.
Annie is there to hold the space, keeping the participants in their creative brain.
