A collaborative art project is a wonderful addition to your event! We design projects appropriate to your setting and clientele. Conferences, festivals, waiting rooms, educational programs, and even parties are great settings for community art projects, and the finished piece can be hung in a place of honor and posted on your website. Some examples are collaborative mandalas, quilts, mosaics, and Flower of Life.
We specialize in transforming your space into one of healing and wellbeing. We will work with you, your staff, students, or residents, to design and collaboratively create a healing and restorative space. Let us show you our portfolio and discuss options, ideas and fees. The possibilities range from a commissioned art work with a healing message, to a complete transformation of an environment.
Periodically we host a community art exhibit, including Touch Drawing and Mandala exhibits.
