Art Residency Participation
Dear precious woman,
after the successful completion of the first Yoniverse and overwhelming positive feedback from participating women and exhibition visitors I like to invite you to become visible and discover your own power in this process.
If you identify as female I would like to invite you to participate in this unique and powerful piece of work in the time between 4th – 24th September 2018. In this time I will provide slots of individual sessions averaging 2,5 hours for a woman to pose their yoni/vulva for being painted in the medium of watercolour.
10:00 am - 6:00 pm

- “Intuitive painting is the practice of meditating with a brush in your hand! A powerful spiritual and creative practice designed to connect people with their intuition and inner guidance. “
The class combines intuitive painting, meditation and free writing. It provides a safe and positive space for free expression, with the aim to develop an intuitive approach to the creative process. The main focus of the activity is the process rather than the final outcome. Art is used as a tool for pure self expression, healing and transformation. A short guided meditation opens and closes the practice and helps to relax the mind and the body.
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
