Camp Imagine 2017

We had an absolute blast with this creative, funny, smart and oh so talented group of girls at Camp Imagine this year.  Our theme was the ocean… and this year we planted a story seed about Sirens that guarded a treasure box of words in the middle of the Sea.  Some people knew that if they called out to the Sirens for wisdom or guidance, the Sirens would reach into their treasure box and pull out the exact right words that each person needed to hear.

Here are some pictures of our time together writing our story Sirens of the Sea, paintings, making treasure boxes, making ocean drums and so much more…

 

We wandered through the Inspiration Station for ideas…

We decorated our sketchbooks…

The Evolution of a Painting

A painting begins well before the paint meets the canvas…  it can start with an image, a trip, an impression, an idea, an emotion, a colour…

This video show that journey and how the seeds for this painting “On Becoming True” were planted during a trip to Bali.

Hope you enjoy!
