Gift your beautiful self or your sweetie this Valentine’s with immersion in the colour red. Indulge your senses and your spirit by joining artist CJ Shelton in her nurturing, nature-filled studio for some creative ‘red-time’ during the heart of our white winter.

Red is the colour of the earth’s life force deep lying dormant beneath the snow. It may be cold outside but in the calm environment of CJ’s studio you can warm your soul and incubate your dreams. You will enjoy a short meditation for inspiration, then let your inner child come out to colour or create a glorious mandala.

This is an expressive arts experience so no artistic training or ability is necessary. Just come and have fun! Loads of art materials will be supplied so that you can really let loose to express your creativity anyway you like. This is a great introduction to the mandala art form as CJ will gently guide you in some of the basics of free-form circular design making – a big creative step up from the traditional “adult” colouring books. If you can colour, you can do it! 

Tea and light refreshments will be served. If you have any questions please contact CJ directly. Space is limited so please RSVP to CJ at to reserve your spot or call 519-942-2018
