Wabi Sabi Painting Workshop

In this workshop you will be guided through an art-making process inspired by the Japanese aesthetic philospophy, wabi-sabi, pulling inspiration from the ordinary using Haiku Poems as our guide. 

Throughout the creative process you will work to embrace the gifts to be found in imperfection & the mistakes that add to the beauty + history of your piece. You will nurture your inner artist & awaken to new ways of seeing yourself & the world around you. 

The workshop will begin with a brief 15-minute introduction to the Wabi-sabi aesthetic philosophy & its elements of design. Then you will be guided through a time of creative introspection using haiku poetry to spark our creative imaginations. 

By the end of the session, you will have created & completed 3 small abstract paintings on paper using oil paint + cold wax to take with you, as well as takeaways from the process that will last a life-time.

This experience is designed for all artistic levels. No artistic training necessary.

This workshop is free.
