GODDESS PAINTING CLASS
third Sundays, 12:45-3:45pm at herchurch

This class will enable you to approach painting in a prayerful, sacred practice, overcoming the inner critic to create a personal, sacred icon!
Katie Ketchum, trained in Shiloh Sophia’s Color of Woman method, will provide instruction based on this powerful technique and guide us in writing chants from our paintings, and Jennifer Mantle, well versed in the method and in holding sacred space, will help create a container in which participants can feel safe to play, grow and explore!
There will also be an optional, free online Goddess Painting Sanctuary on Facebook for participants to share about the goddess we are communing with, connect with each other, and share their process. Painting technique will be taught in person during class, with additional tutoring available from Katie by arrangement.
Join us for this powerful, prayerful, playful, soul-enlivening adventure!
