In this 2 day mid-week workshop I will be teaching how to receive through the senses liberating your creative flow. You will benefit from my years as an Art Psychotherapist and Embodiment coach understanding the creative process and the neuroscience behind what allows painting and creativity to flow, rather than trying to get it right before and as it arrives on the canvas. We will paint the sea together - and discover opening our senses to see!

We will begin with guided relaxation into your creative with step by step support throughout your journey with your canvas and expressions. We will explore together liberation routes into trusting spontaneity.

Canvas, oil paints and mediums for use on the day are included. You will also have options to buy your own tubes of paint and quality, discounted canvases to take away.

Katie Sarra is passionate about painting and supporting people to reignite their creativity and overcome all that's been in the way of it flowing.
