    Whether you just want to move color and play with paint or complete a small work of art, all are welcome to gather for a lighthearted relaxing morning of creativity for parents/guardians, kids and teens while immersed in nature. Surrounded by trees, birdsong, and wildlife around our pond, this class offers a perfect environment for artistic inspiration! Layers of guidance will be offered allowing all to explore their creative process and work at one's own pace. This workshop will have an offered theme that one can choose to embrace or just come and paint intuitively. Through the Trees Guide, Stacey, enjoys holding a fun and safe container for play and intuitive expression, knowing deeply that we are all channels of creative flow.  What wants to be created through you? Let’s explore!

    This workshop is open to all levels of experience. Supplies are provided, but participants are welcome to bring their own supplies, reference photo, etc, if desired. Each participant will have the option to paint on canvas and will be able to bring home their unique work of art

    Stacey brings many years of experience and a love for working with children in art, nature, yoga, and mindfulness. She developed and led Peaceful Painting workshops and Mind-Body-Nature camps in California. Most recently, she was a preschool teacher in Yarmouth, Maine and now shares her passion, expertise and talent with us at Through the Trees as an artist, yoga instructor and Guide in our Youth Nature Immersion Programs.

    Cost per Family: $25

    Materials Cost: $5 per person for canvas, paint and other supplies (can be paid in cash at the event or at registration)
