duration:

2 hours

location:

Live Virtual Workshop

Experience a beautiful and easy process of intuitively writing your own poem and using it as inspiration for your painting. 

No experience necessary. 

Lotte will guide you through a process where you’ll use an inspiration “wall” with images to write a poem (this won’t take more than 10 min). You’ll then move over to your canvas and use your poem as jumping off point for your painting.  This will be an intuitive kind of painting that is all about creative exploration and freedom – a process of letting go and joyful discovery in a non-judgmental space.

There are no mistakes here. 

We will connect virtually and you'll be painting from the convenience of your home. This is all about having fun and connecting with your joy - humming, singing and moving your body while painting are encouraged!
