Activities

CREATING FROM THE RIGHT BRAIN

Join Youhjung’s workshop to gain a better understanding of the roles your right and left brain play in your thought and creative processes and try out a technique that taps into the right brain, subconscious, and intuitive expression. When you engage in activities that are not tethered to logic or reason, you can access a depth of creativity and manifestation that is often obscured by thought. Draw with your non-dominant hand and shape clay with your eyes closed. Marvel at what you can create when you don’t over-think it. No art skills or experience necessary. All levels are welcome to this non-judgmental space of free expression. 75 MIN|$75

COMPLIMENTARY

GUIDED VISUALIZATION AND ART

Take your creation home with you as a reminder of the power of art to impact your life, deflect anxiety, and improve your outlook.
