As your Expressive Arts Facilitator, I create a safe space for you to be seen and heard for your unique, amazing, creative, imaginative self as you explore, play and heal yourself with love and compassion following your (emotions = energy in motion) through process painting.

Expressive Arts process painting is where students experience a peaceful and meditative creative environment.  This painting practice encourages “letting go of things that get in the way of full creative expression like perfectionism, comparison and the need for external approval.  It supports students in claiming the courage to explore and experiment, to make things up and take outrageous creative risks. This painting practice helps you form a deeper relationship to your intuition by listening to signals telling them what colors to choose or shapes to paint.  This painting practice is meditative and students will eventually be able to tell the difference between their intuitive intelligence and their analytical/judging mind.”

Painting experience isn’t necessary to have a meaningful and creative time.  Intuitive process painting opens up your heART and soul to experience joy, freedom, and incredible self awareness that you are enough just as you are.  This form of painting helps you tap into a portal of creativity; finding the path to your own creative source and gives you a way to fearlessly explore unknown aspects of yourself using your favorite colors and a paint brush.

The Beat Of Your heArt will be a 3-part wellness event with guest instructors and Deborah at her studio, featuring multiple ways for everyone to find themselves, let go, and relax. Our world can get stressful and we often find ourselves unable to experience moments of stillness, or times to truly be creative and nurture our inner self. This experience will invite you to get comfortable with who you are, make connections with like-minded individuals, feel supported, uplifted and rebalanced. We want to provide an environment that will help you discover new things about yourself, and provide the space to explore new forms of wellness that could help motivate you to self-healing and expression.

In this exciting encaustic class Marcia will show you how she uses shellac and alcohol inks to create kaleidoscope landscapes as well as flowers.

What is Encaustic?   

Encaustic is a beeswax-based paint that is kept molten on a heated palette. It is applied to a surface and reheated to fuse the paint into a uniform enamel-like finish.  The term “Encaustic” is derived from the Greek word “enkaien” which means “to burn into”. This procedure of applying molten colored wax to various surfaces was used by the Egyptians more than 2,000 years ago – the resulting paintings are in museums all over the world.
