When was the last time you picked up a piece of clay and let it roll in your fingers? Clay is calming and relaxing to work with.  We will use air dry clay to create goddess, and meditation dolls to be used to promote imagination and your own creative style. Embellish and adorn figurines with buttons, paint and more. No art experience needed.
Warm-up exercises, meditation and journal prompts to begin. Intuitive art focuses on the process rather than product. There is no right or wrong way to approach your art making.

All supplies are here for you. A brief meditation will get you started and a short writing exercise is all you need to get your imagination flowing.

What people are saying:
I can't thank Victoria enough for the space and support to heal with other women through art, and fun." Michelle E 

Thank You for the great class Saturday.  I really did enjoy it and left feeling like I really did learn something about myself and letting go and to try to just be a bit more accepting and relaxed about who and where I am.  So thank you!!


Thank you so much for what you have brought to my life. It is the first time in almost 3 years I have found anything or anyone that brings me so much peace and happiness inside (except for the ocean, of course).
