Embrace the wild and honor your untamed heart in Alaska while making memorable art.
July in Alaska is synonymous with gorgeous weather. So it comes as no surprise that flowers are at their prime, the wildlife is active and the days are warm in the land of the midnight sun.
We will mix colors in rich hues inspired by the lush landscape, and create mono prints on a Gelli plate. As we amass a stack of abstract printed paper we will choose our favorites to incorporate into our art journals for compositions featuring circles, symmetry and symbolism that are personalized and inspiring to each individual.
Circles are symbols of unity, wholeness and harmony and are often found in artwork featuring progress, regeneration and renewal. We will create unique pieces in the form of mandalas, and abstract landscapes all while learning more about the symbols of local indigenous tribes, and be instructed on how to let the area inspire you while creating art in your own style.
If you are looking to escape the everyday, to be inspired in a free frontier and want to enjoy a creative wellness practice with other kindred spirits let’s circle round and relish in the wild of Alaska together!
