Art of the Brush is an enrichment program designed to teach the fundamentals of moving meditation and brushwork techniques. We will work on developing our minds and bodies while having fun creating artistic masterpieces. From the dance floor to the canvas the tools that we offer will improve discipline, focus, and skill to anyone willing to participate! We love to teach people how to use art to grow!!
The moving meditation will be taught by Michael J. Colis II, owner and lead instructor of Mind, Body, and Art. Michael has had years of experience competing in soccer and has trainind in various martial arts such as Tai Chi and Tae Kwon Do. He started using moving mediations in 2009 to treat pain and discomfort in his neck after an injury he suffered while snowboarding.
The brushwork lesson will be instructed by artist Debra Tursi. Debra is well-known in the Haddonfield area for her ability to inspire young artists with love, knowledge, and care. Her pedagogy has been cultivated over years of experience as an entrepreneur painting portraits for clients and working at prestigious educational institutions like Montessori and Friends School.
We will also discuss how to use scented oils, teas, and music to improve our health and enhance our artistic creativity!
Come learn to calm and center yourself to create the masterpiece within you!
