Stepping Stones Expressive Arts

We want to let you know about two offerings that are coming up over the next few months. Perhaps you would like to tune into the vibrations of spring with some creative time.


Intuitive Painting (online) - Thursdays, April 4th - May 9th, 7 - 8:30pm

Our consistently popular Intuitive Painting sessions are back in an evening time slot this spring. Here's more information about these:

$125 for all 6 sessions or $25 per session
optional art kits available for $30
-during this time we allow our inner voice to speak through painting with watercolours
-this is a peaceful and calming experience where there is no judgement and no experience required
-learn about how to be curious about your work rather than critical
-embrace painting with the openness of a child
