Reflections of an Artistic Mystic

Shelley Irish, 9/8/19

Yesterday I ran my Meditative Painting workshop at Moonrise Studios. My students had a fun time and one woman who had a rough night the night before said she felt better after the workshop. 💝 I have taught this class at the Center for Spiritual Living and Daniel Smith Artist’s Materials as well, and doing the workshop at Moonrise was wonderful. They took to the process fast and felt free to be quite expressive. The main goal in Meditative Painting is to align your breath with your brushstrokes. We move slowly, use big movements and the brush lands on the canvas as it will. In this way the practice is like a slow dance with your paintbrush and canvas. It’s beautiful to watch everyone’s approach. I felt another layer of intimacy come out with us being in a private art space. I feel very joyed to offer my Holistic Artistic classes here now. 💜
