Please do not attend if you have any symptoms of course. The onsite team is vaccinated. There are also social distancing options available.

PRIMA MATERIA Portfolio of your Artifacts

You will work with nine 22X30 pieces of watercolor paper, watercolors, and plant-based inks.
These art supplies will be provided as part of tuition. Read more about your Prima Materia Portfolio.
You will begin each painting but will more than likely finish it at home.


Format: We will gather in Circle each day to discuss the materials and the approach Frameworks. We’ll use metacognitive illustration to access the information of and for our Prima Material. We will paint our designs. We’ll share and discuss the material. We’ll eat and nap. Then we will revisit and witness what transpired. You will develop your own creative spiritual practice to work with after you return home.
