Goddess Painting and More
Paint your own sacred icons of the Divine Feminine even if you’ve never painted before!
Painting class regularly meets on the third Sunday of the month in the herchurch Art Womb, 1-4pm. $25 for herchurchers. $35 for general public.
No painting experience needed. We provide a composition and instruction on this wonderful technique, though you’re welcome to do your own thing, too! We’ll use a method that enables you to create your personal icon even if you have never painted before!
The class fee includes all the supplies. You might also like to bring a journal and painting smock, though some smocks are available.
All genders welcome, as are supervised kiddos. (Discounted price available for kids.)
Can’t join us this month? Our classes are the third Sunday of each month and focus on a different goddess each month. Be sure to ask Jennifer or Katie about joining our online Goddess Painting Sanctuary, which is free and conducted on Facebook.

Special event: Reiki Painting! Date TBD $70
Join us for a special afternoon of connecting to our Reiki guide(s), inviting Reiki to inform our paintings, and ultimately creating a piece that will continually emit Reiki wherever it is hung! How could that possibly be topped off? Well with crystals of course!
Katie Ketchum and Jennifer Mantle will guide this class with gentleness and joy, using techniques inspired by the Color of Woman method which allows you to paint a face even if you’ve never painted before!
This class is geared towards those who have level I Reiki or more, though those who haven’t had a Reiki placement/attunement are also welcome. Class fee of $70 includes all supplies including crystals and light munchies. ASL accessible. Supervised kids welcome. RSVP to reserve your spot. You can pay with cash/check in person or Venmo/PayPal to Jennifer at Adore Her Designs at gmail dot com
