Spirit Painting With Natural Earth Pigments - 2/18/23 - In Person Workshop

Creating Connections Through Ancient Painting Techniques

Workshop Summary

Saturday, February 18th, 1:00 - 4:00PM At Event Horizon in Ashland, WI

Enjoying and creating art from nature touches aspects of both the human and more-than-human worlds. By creating meaningfully-inspired nature-based artwork, you have the opportunity to experience a sensorial relationship with the living land. This, in turn, contributes to connectedness and grounding oneself on multiple levels. Making art with natural materials can create a substantial foundation of empowerment which serves as guide toward wholesome relationships. It’s also fun!  

Expressing ourselves while we walk our Life Walk is highly important. Creative expression through the ancestral power of ancient painting techniques using earth pigments from the land will be the concentration in this workshop. In painting with these types of pigments, you are using techniques dating back thousands of years.  

You will participate in the making of clay, charcoal, and ash pigments utilizing locally gathered materials treated with ceremonial care and guidance from traditions long held onto over time. After creating the pigments, you will mix them as paints to decorate a personalized rawhide amulet or stone with the design of your choice. The process we will explore dates back 50,000 years or more. Connecting with the ancient link humans have with nature will be at the core of this exploration.

If you have a special rock or stone you wish to bring to paint on with these earth-based paints, feel free to bring it. Otherwise, all materials are provided.  

This is a workshop targeted for ages 16 and up.
