Angels in the Dark

Meet Your Inner Healer With Meditation and Paint with George Herrick
Wednesday, August 10, 2022, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. 

$90 (Includes lunch. Art supplies extra)

“When I learned I had a fast-growing cancer, I was, of course scared, confused and angry. I was in good hands with a great medical team, so as an artist, I felt the best way to assist in my own healing was to express the cancer and release it with paint! As I did, I unexpectedly started painting abstract angels – the inner healers helping me get well. I called them my “Angels in the Dark.” I began to understand that painting my personal experience of the healing process helped me to release my fears, express my anger, attend to my grief and release all the feelings and thoughts that would otherwise keep me up at night. Since then, I have painted “Angels in the Dark” to help me deal with other stressors and worries, for example, COVID-19.”

In this workshop, you will meet one of your “angels,” and learn how to easily paint it, even if you have never picked up a brush before. You may begin to feel how exciting it is to express both what scares you and sets you free! You will have ample time to paint on your own, while being supported by George and a small group of participants. The program will include input, reflection, hands-on painting practice, silence and sharing (if you are so inclined).
