Workshop Description:

Embark on a transformative artistic journey with the Spirit Within Watercolour Workshop led by the visionary artist, Halina Stoprya. In this immersive experience, participants are welcomed into a space of creativity and exploration, where the spirit finds its voice through the enchanting medium of watercolour.

Halina's favourite subjects—nature, animals, and the human face—are woven into the workshop's fabric, reflecting our interconnectedness with the world. Discover the profound stories within each connection as nature's creatures become your teachers, guides, and messengers.

Halina Stoprya, with her passion for intricate yet spontaneous art, invites you to delve into the boundless possibilities of expression. Like water flowing in every direction, her loose and magical approach captures the essence of life in each stroke. Join her in discovering the wisdom of water, where it blends, bleeds, and beckons more life into your artistic visions.

As with any art form, release judgment, silence the mind, breathe deeply into the process, and find joy in every step. Halina will guide you through two transformative steps: Ask yourself a question with wonder and openness, then invite spirit guides to wonder with you, guiding the creation of your unique story. Watch as magic unfolds on paper, bringing your visions to life.

The human face takes center stage in Halina's compositions, offering a focal point capable of inspiring empathy and self-reflection. Animals, our spirit guides and storytellers, add depth and meaning to the narrative.

Learn the art of making watercolours paint themselves as Halina imparts classic techniques, incorporating salt and rubbing alcohol. Explore diverse methods such as wet on dry, wet on wet, and negative space painting, allowing you to unleash your creativity with every brushstroke.

Join Halina Stoprya in this extraordinary 2-day workshop, where art becomes a conduit for self-discovery, connection, and the pure joy of creation. Let your spirit soar as you paint the story within the watercolours, embracing the magic that awaits at every brushstroke.
