Intuitive Energy Art Workshops
Enjoy a day of experimental abstract art at The Langford in Fivehead, Somerset, exploring how mindfulness and art are a perfect balance. Learn how to bring energy through your body and allow intuition to show you the way.
This beautiful setting on the Somerset Levels is a perfect venue to enable us to connect with nature and explore how contemporary art can be channelled through the body without the interruption of the thinking mind.
This is not a day of fine art training. There will be no lessons in perspective! It’s all about going with the flow and allowing your emotions and the environment around you to flow through on the paper.
Weather permitting, the afternoon session will be enjoyed outside in the beautiful grounds.
I will give you pointers to colour mixing, types of paints to use, and there will be chance to try different surfaces and techniques.
A delicious two-course vegetarian lunch is included.
No previous experience in art required.
All materials are provided, and you take away the work you produce.
To ensure you have my undivided attention, this day is limited to just SIX people.
Dates for 2020 - 28th March and 25th April - £140 per person
Arrive at the main house around 0930 for introductions and a 10.00 start.

We will start with some mindful grounding exercises to enable you to feel the space you are working in. If the weather is dry, this may be done outside as the grounds are stunning – perfect for some time to absorb the energies within nature.
I will show you how I work and give you some simple ways to set up a painting.
