2022 WEEKEND GETAWAY EXPERIENCES
Do you remember doodling in the margins of your notebooks in school? Do you still like doodling? Then this workshop is for you. Henna Yourself is a relaxing hands-on exploration of henna body art. We will discuss the history and science behind henna, practice some basic design elements by doodling with frosting on graham crackers, and then doodle on ourselves with actual henna if we feel so inspired.
INTUITIVE PAINT EXPLORATION
Give yourself permission to play. In this workshop, we will explore how colors and shapes make us feel while moving the paint across the page. Use your fingers, paint brushes, and other tools to draw, blend, and splatter. This can be a meditative healing experience or just for funsies … no pressure or experience necessary.
BODY PAINTING SESSIONS
Become living art by receiving a large scale body painting. Coverage area will depend on the complexity of the design chosen. Designs can be based on your own inspiration or the artist’s intuition. Paintings are temporary and will last as long as they are kept dry.
GROUP BODY PAINTING EXPERIENCE
Learn how to use body paint to paint on yourselves and/or each other. This is a guided hands-on group exploration of body painting for bonding and self expression.
HENNA BODY ART
Adorn yourself with a custom henna design to match your vibe: mandalas, florals, geometric patterns, or whatever you have in mind. Henna sessions are a relaxing meditative experience where you connect with your artist to receive and become a work of art. Henna designs are typically applied to the hands or feet and can be enjoyed for about a week.
