Meet Your Spirit Guide:
Weekend Sculpting Retreat
with Chas Martin
Friday, July 12 – Sunday, July 14
There is another spirit always present. A shadow, an angel, an intuitive voice that guides your decisions. It’s personal. It’s precious. It’s your other self. And, to create it in sculptural form is to embrace its power in your life.
“Meet Your Spirit Guide” is a 2-1/2-day celebration or your other spirit. You will learn simple sculptural techniques to create a wire armature. Experiment with gestures that express your spirit’s personality. Then add a surface to make it real. Paint or decorate it with colors, textures and objects that symbolize your own aspirations. This is your journey if you’re ready to visualize and realize your dreams. Join a small tribe of explorers for this adventure.
Participants are encouraged to bring photos, sketches or other resources. Bring an apron and disposable gloves. You are welcome to bring beads, feathers, or any other surface materials you wish. All other materials will be provided.
Participants may arrive anywhere between 3:00 and 5:00 pm on Friday. Dinner Friday night will be a potluck. The remaining meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday, breakfast and lunch on Sunday, will be prepared for you. The retreat will draw to a close at 3:00 pm on Sunday.
