|Spiritual Art Workshop – highly compatible with kundalini yoga – VEIL painting
Nourish your whole being over a weekend to yourself – as you immerse yourself in the wonderful world of colour.
Experience the health-bringing effects of developing an intimate and personal relationship with the beings of colour.
This weekend immersion and mini retreat is a deep privilege, as Madonna travels from Melbourne to teach us the art of veil painting. Examples are posted in this link/invite below. This art form is not taught in South Australia to the general public, so I am deeply excited to offer this to you here!!!
You can find out more about our teacher Madonna below.
Together we will dive deeply into the world of colour through colour meditation, observation and water colour painting. Whether an experienced painter or someone who has never imagined themselves picking up a paint brush, this workshop will enrich your inner life and lead you into a world of awakening.
You will explore the technique of veil painting: a beautiful, soft, spiritually-inspired art-form that gently counters the harshness of modern life. You will experience the deeply nourishing effect of pure colour overlaid in sheer layers (veils), working slowly and meditatively to gradually build depth and dynamism on the paper. Witness the social activity of the colours as they come into conversation with each other on the page, and feel the wonder of being invited into their world.
Both days will be quite full, enriching and transformative and you will find it most helpful if you are able to create some quiet space for yourself in the evenings to digest and reflect.
I am delighted to be sharing this work with you and look forward to our time together.
All art materials provided. You will create 2 pieces of personal contemplative art.
Please bring a shared vegetarian lunch for both days.
Refreshments and drinks e.g. tea, water, light refreshments and juice provided!
You will be held in sacred space in a divine, creative environment, to express, share, contemplate according to your unique way and needs. St David’s church, Glynburn Road, in Burnside, which is beautiful, is warm, light-filled and spaceous!
“Thank you for allowing me to introduce myself: my name is Madonna Holmes.
I am an experienced teacher with both state and Waldorf (Steiner) training. For more than 20 years I have been teaching in primary schools, both public and private, throughout Melbourne, Australia, and I love to teach.
In recent years my teaching has branched out from the role of classroom generalist into the area of painting. I have fulfilled the role of painting teacher in Anthroposophic settings in Australia and in China, where I have taught in a number of Steiner Kindergarten Teacher Training centres as well as fulfilling the role of assistant and support teacher in an Anthroposophic Painting Therapy training.
I am constantly inspired by the privilege it is to support others in their striving toward new thresholds in their personal, spiritual and artistic development, and am thrilled by every new opportunity to bring alive the spirits of light, darkness and colour through working with watercolour and charcoal.”
