The Middletown Art Center (MAC) invites community members to participate in Tree of Life: A Healing Drawing Process, this Saturday, February 20, from 11:00am-1:00pm on Zoom. The workshop will be facilitated remotely on Zoom by Neurographica® Specialist and Artist Antje Howard.
The workshop will include a Neurographica® drawing process to create a meditative tree that can support anyone in their personal, professional and creative development. Participants will use simple drawing techniques to process and reframe their experiences of trauma, angst, and uncertainty into a more navigable form. Teens and adults welcome, no prior experience needed.
“As humans we have an inherent connection with trees, they provide the oxygen we breathe, they hold and protect the soil under our feet, they provide materials for our everyday life. Trees can also offer a spiritual connection for us. The image of the tree is a mythical theme that can be found in literally all cultures around the world”, explained Antje. “We can learn a lot from trees, and gain insights into how we can grow and develop ourselves and our unique personalities. Furthermore, trees grow in communities, they take care of each other, and they even have their own way to communicate with each other.”
Please register at middletownartcenter.org/classes. Participation is by donations of $15-$25. A Zoom link will be provided following payment. No one turned away for lack of funds.
