Life is an Art is one of Oak Creek Apple Company’s Body-Mind-Spirit wellness groups with an emphasis on supporting and improving emotional health through creating abstract acrylic pour paintings-Sedona style! This is an intuitive, transformational journey into artmaking, guided the whispers of your very own soul. There are no mistakes because this is not an art "lesson", it is a free-flowing expression from within and no experience is necessary! We open our experience with a group discussion of how artmaking provides an outlet for the the soul through abstract expression. We then take a few momenta for quiet contemplation to center ourselves and still our minds, honoring our emotions and their role in our well-being. Each participant will then be instructed in how to create their own acrylic poured painting on canvas using colors to represent their emotions. After painting, we join together as a group to process how each person's painting represents their life. This experience allows everyone, regardless of prior experience or skill level, to give their soul a voice by creating personal acrylic pour paintings which can be taken home and used for further mindful contemplation, meditation and goal setting. **LODGING AVAILABLE, MESSAGE TO INQUIRE**
