Messy, Magical, Art-Making Muse Date (1)
Time & Location
About The Event
Kissing the Muse is participating in Creativity & Wellbeing Week 2021, sponsored by London Arts and Health and the Culture, Health & Wellbeing Alliance. This particular workshop is dedicated to Covid-19 relief efforts in India. Instead of making a sliding scale payment to Kissing the Muse through this website, I encourage you to donate directly to any of the following charitable organizations, or to one of your own favorites:
Or, if you prefer, can also purchase a Muse Date ticket through this website and I will make a donation on your behalf (minus the 2.5% platform fee my website charges me for all ticket sales).
If you could use a little creative self-care at the moment, (and want to show you care while you're at it), then this is the perfect opportunity to do both!
During this 2.5-hour creative encounter, you will embrace your muse through a unique "kissing practice” that combines active imagination, collage-making, creative writing, and story-sharing. The muse is a mirror of your inner artist. She reflects your innate creative potential. It doesn’t matter whether you dabble with watercolor, or cake frosting, write poetry or prose, or can't draw a stick figure to save your sister, kissing your muse will illuminate your unique, creative path to happiness.
Muse Date ticket: €10-€25 sliding scale donation to COVID-19 emergency relief in India
