Be Here Now Workshop
Expressive Arts Wellness Retreat 


Program Description

Be Here Now is a two-day painting workshop and introduction to the Expressive Arts (EXA). Whether you are a seasoned painter or complete beginner, this workshop will show you the therapeutic nature of the expressive arts and how it offers new ways of being with ourselves and our creativity. EXA is process-oriented with a focus on expression, imagination, and mind-body connection. By using an EXA approach to artmaking, the creative process becomes experimental and open, offering a chance for participants to see their innate creativity as a resource for day-to-day life.

The Be Here Now Workshop will focus on painting with the accompaniment of writing, music, movement, stories, nature, and meditation as a part of the process. This is not your average painting workshop. Expect to play, move, experiment, connect and be in community.
