Calm Your Mind with Watercolour Meditations

With DIY craft kit delivered to you

Learn colour theory through simple mindfulness exercises



1.5 hours Class size 3 to 15     label $55 - $75 ($55 for Class only, no box, $75 for Class and box)


Do you feel like your days have been so packed with responsibilities, never-ending to-do lists and outside noise, that you forgot to listen to the inner voice that is screaming at you asking to please slow down?

It might seem selfish at first, but taking care of your mind and body can be the most selfless thing to do. You can't give from an empty cup. Self-care is an act of love, not just for you, but for everyone that you are trying to serve.

Vanessa has been living a hectic life for so many years until she realised that all she needed was to get back in touch with her inner creative and start listening to her heart and body. She has found that mindfulness and meditation can help, but meditating can seem a bit confronting at the beginning.

So why don't we start now, with guidance and the magical help of soothing colours? Let your hand and mind flow with beautiful creative energy, while colours take over to calm your mind and heart.

Vanessa will teach you colour theory principles, while painting relaxing watercolour pieces together, where you will experiment with different painting techniques that you will connect with your breath to find that "FLOW" state where only magic happens.

We hope this class can bring all the relaxation that your soul needs to channel beautiful restoring energy to fill up your cup so that you can start giving from your abundant overflow instead of living every day running empty.

If you have taken one of Vanessa's calligraphy classes in the past, take your tools out after the class, and she will do a +15-minute demo on how to re-purpose your beautiful tools with your new lettering skills!
