Art makes the soul visible…and you don’t have to be an artist to embrace your creative curiosities and adventurous spirit. Join us as we welcome New York artist Joanne Sharpe, “the Whimsy Whisperer” for a soulful creative art experience.  

We begin our beautiful and very special morning gathering in circle. Guests are invited to practice a few peaceful moments of gratitude -- pausing on purpose to simply breathe, meditate, and set mindful intentions for the experience of SOUL JOURNALING.

Explore simple watercolor painting and lettering techniques to create colorful, whimsical imagery for daily art journaling as mindful meditation and reflection.  Take home a small illustrated accordion style art journal.  Create tiny artworks with expressive watercolor and doodle drawings with simple imagery as backgrounds for journaling your daily thoughts and favorite quotes.

We'll paint, play, laugh and learn with Joanne who will inspire you, empower you and encourage you every step of the way!
