Into the Trees - An Intuitive Writing & Drawing Workshop
“Trees are a poem the earth writes upon the sky.” Kahlil Gibran
“Around me the trees stir in their leaves and call out, ‘Stay awhile.’” Mary Oliver
Join illustrator Becca Borrelli and author Sean Petrie for a weekend intuitive art and writing workshop about trees. Immerse yourself into the world of these gentle beings through intuitive mark-making, mixed media, journaling prompts, improvisational writing, poetry and much more. Use trees as an anchor for your intuitive creative practice, reflect and create in nature, and commune with other artists in a relaxed outdoor environment.
This workshop is a hybrid virtual/ in-person class. The Sunday session will be held locally in Austin, TX at iconic nature preserve Mayfield Park. The park requires that visitors wear masks. Recording and live stream of the Sunday session will be unavailable for remote artists. If you would like to sign up for the recorded/ virtual Saturday session only, we are offering it a reduced registration rate for our artist friends outside of Austin.
When it is:
Saturday May 15th 11:00 am- 3 pm (Virtual)
Sunday 16th 10:00 am- noon (Mayfield Park)
What it is:
- One, four hour virtual session. One, two hour plein-air session at Mayfield Park in Austin, TX.
- Create tree-based art and writing
- Share your visions, ideas and creations with other makers
- Get recordings of the live sessions to watch again and again
- Exclusive access to Becca’s private virtual art community: The HeART School.
What it’s NOT:
- A step-by-step tutorial on how to draw and write about trees
- Product focused. You might end up with beautiful work, but it won’t be the objective. The objective is to reflect on our inner worlds as we move into the season of Springtime!
