WW: Intuitive Painting

Date: Friday, December 4
Time: 14.00 - 16:00
Presenter: Kim Flüeler  http://www.studiosol.ch

The holidays are approaching and it’s time to get creative. Come spend a few relaxing hours at Studio Sol to get into the holiday spirit. You will “make and take” what you paint. The studio is set up with a palette table of eighteen water-based gouache colors. A paper is pinned up to the wall and each person will paint standing up. Chairs are available if needed.​

My name is Kim Flüeler and I am the art facilitator of Studio Sol. In September 2015 I went to Paris to attend the Painting Play seminar taught by Arno Stern. I hold a BFA in Graphic Design from the Kansas City Art Institute. I look forward to welcoming you to Studio Sol soon. studiosol.ch

Add on to your relaxing day with a Traditional Hawaiian Lomilomi massage. This will take place in the same building as Studio Sol before or after the “make and take” activity. Lomilomi activates muscle tissue connections, stretches ligaments and tendons, promotes joint mobility, stimulates nerves and organs, and prevents inflammation. For body, mind, and soul Lomilomi is like a short vacation in Hawaii. Marcel, Kim’s husband, is a certified Lomilomi masseur and member of the Swiss Association of Professional Masseurs (SVBM). 90 minutes for CHF 130.-- or 120 minutes for CHF 160.--. For more information check out the website at wylomi.ch or call 076 500 80 67 to schedule your appointment.

Marcel will be donating 20CHF to the club from the proceeds of the massage.

Who can attend: Adults
Workshop Fee: Members CHF 20, Non-members CHF 30
Additional Materials Fee: CHF 10 (Please pay, in cash, at the workshop)
