We were gifted the most gorgeous parcel of goodness, charcoals, pencils, mixed papers and fabrics, that guided our afternoon’s creations.
We breathed and explored textures, we ripped paper, we bashed leaves, we printed our own colours, we drew, we moved our bodies, we observed. We created beautiful memories.
Being guided by Fran in an afternoon of Art and Nature was soothing balm for my soul. I was a little apprehensive when I booked, as I am NOT an artist, I am a nature lover and a creative person, but the thought of drawing and painting nature made me nervous.
But please, do not think you have to be an established artist to experience such joy and light in Fran’s workshops.
We were guided back to our breath, we were mindful of the placement of our pencil and charcoal on the paper. We created colours and patterns out of leaves from the ground, we observed colours of flowers change in the sunlight.
Please give yourself this time and space and experience to deepen your connection to yourself and to nature. It is truly a gift.
