Soul Lab Series: Discover Art from the Inside Out
Soul Lab @ the Quaker Meeting House in Lake Worth -- Juicy Creatives Studio new "pop-up" art space!
What is it?
This weekly drop-in group creates an ongoing safe container to explore art as a Soul-full, meaning-creating force in our lives. Soul Lab is a place where you can learn to listen to your inner voice, and the voice of the imagery you create, while sharing with and supporting each other on the inward journey of creativity. Mandala Making, SoulCollage®, Art Journaling, and Intuitive Transformational paintingare some of the Expressive Arts modalities that are introduced and offered during Soul Lab.
At the beginning of each session there is check-in to connect and meet each other, then a meditation and/or creative process is offered to get the juices flowing.
