Facilitated by Matt Belay & Betsy Vingle

"I love painting without thinking. That in itself feels like a such a relief and a surrender into something bigger than myself. I am understanding more and more how what matters is participating with the creative force, not the painting. Not what I like or don't like, but allowing myself full permission to express whatever wants to come through."   Rivka S

Join us for a weekend of in-depth exploration of the creative process, freed from the demands of perfection, training and skill. This weekend workshop will be held at the Creative Hub Studios, a new arts venue in downtown Asheville.

Tuition: $425 ~ Your tuition includes all art materials, over 12 hours of facilitated painting sessions, group discussion circles in supportive community, a video presentation about creativity and the practice of art as process.
