‘A Quiet Heart’ Art Retreat Days - Summer 2017 Series

I invite you to one or all of this summer’s series of art retreat days – ‘A Quiet Heart.’ There is so many things seeking our attention that sometimes we need to take a pause and have space to let our hearts be quiet in a positive active way. Come have time to retreat for a few hours from ‘life’ and journey into the creative (right side the brain) in order to journey towards a quiet heart.

Think of these days as a ‘spa day for your soul’ using your creative side. These art retreat days are open to everyone, no matter your skill level or background.

Reflective materials and art materials are all supplied along with tutorial support, lunch and teas/coffees. Each art retreat day starts at 10 am with coffee and finishes by 3 pm with a break for lunch (provided). Hot drinks will also be available throughout the day. Total cost for the art retreat day is £30.00. Saturday 5/8/17 is a special morning only £20.00 (no lunch).

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me (Jennette). I look forward to welcoming you and facilitating a day for you to have time to create.
