Hosted live on Zoom
A virtual retreat hosted live on Zoom to take some quiet moments for following our creativity in any medium you wish whether it be sketching, writing, collage, tactile arts, photography, etc. We'll also provide a printable coloring sheet to explore as we amble through some gentle prompts together. There’s never any pressure to engage more than feels comfortable, and this time is for you to enjoy solo creative time of your own while sharing space with fellow creatives who are doing the same.
