Playing With Fire | Painting + Poetry as Kindling

From Sheila…

Come “play with fire” with Sheila Atchley. Your fire, and the things that spark your inspiration uniquely, are as personal as your DNA. You’ll be inspired to honor your unique spark. Using poetry as a powerful tool, you will learn how to design personal creative rituals, visit the art of Lectio Divina, and read and write poetry that will then kindle the most beautiful art. Find a community of poets and artists, and together make soulful, simple, poetic offerings, effortless keepsake art journals, and literally weave your beautiful moments.

These are exciting times. Poets and poetry are coming into the spotlight as never before. I have always felt like poetry and painting go together. Let’s explore certain themes, let’s tap into our fleeting immediate raw emotion, let’s write creatively and paint expressively. Let’s even meditate a little bit, and do personal “moment studies” complete with “field notes”. Let’s take a poem and abstract it, take a special moment and literally weave it; let’s learn about story boards, and then collage images. Let’s examine metaphor, and how to distill emotions into a few nourishing, well chosen words. In the process, we will play, practice basic hand lettering technique, figure out how to pour resin over our paintings, and we will create atmospheric self portraits easily, with vellum. There’s so much goodness here. You’ll be able to soak yourself in the overflow for a long, long time. I promise.Playing With Fire | Painting + Poetry as Kindling
