Are you looking for a fresh creative experience? Join me on a creative expression painting journey in the open fresh air of the Botanical gardens in Pretoria!

This creative painting class will expand your awareness to realise that we are all "life artist" and that your life is the canvas of your Soul!

Do you wish you could paint but believe you can't even draw a stick figure? Do you watch other people paint and wish you could do the same? Are you drawn to the sacred language of symbolism and colour? Then this class is for you!

In this 1st workshop for 2021, happening on Sunday 28th of February, we will paint a Dreamcatcher! Join us for a very activating in-person workshop, where we will guide you to embrace your dreams at the portal your Soul ~ the canvas. By the end of this workshop you will dream with confidence and boldly declare: "I am a Dream Catcher!"

Hi, my name is Gideon Busquét-Craucamp AKA Gideonslight. I am a certified Creatively Fit Coach and artist. I offer "Painting Made Easy" workshops that empower people to creatively express themselves at the canvas, and at the same time experience the incredible insight and personal growth one can experience in this colourful and fun sessions offered in the beautiful natural setting of the botanical gardens of Pretoria.

With each class, happening once a month, we will explore one sacred symbol at the canvas and discover what its message is for you in the moment, while I will guide you step by step through each layer of the painting process from beginning to end.

No previous art skills or techniques are required to attend or benefit from the class, just a willingness to be open to a creative process of playful expression at the canvas. Artists are also welcome who are drawn to the class intention and content.

*All art materials for the class are included in the fee (except for your entrance fee at the gate) including: 1x canvas board, acrylic paint, brushes, water container, paper towels, chalk & disposable palette. (Please return brushes after the class!)

*If you do have your own portable easil please bring it with. Otherwise most people paint on the ground by propping the canvas up at an angle with a towel.

*If you have Acrylic paint and brushes you prefer to paint with, feel free to bring your supplies along.
