Healing the Body is an art workshop that uses meditation and art as wellness tools to un-silence and empower. In this hands-on workshop, facilitating artist Ashley Dequilla, will guide you through a meditation and reflection activity before participants create 72" x 42" abstract figure portraits. At the end of every session, participants are photographed in front of image projections of their creations. Focusing on the embodied experience through art, this will be a safe space for expression and a strong sense of community.
Join us on September 27th let us celebrate together all the magic and creativity we have all cultivated in our most recent pop up in Tenleytown.
We will share some of the magic with you through dope beats by DJ Kryptk, creative vibes with interactive manifestation art, and a whole lot of feminine energy. May you be in your element this night. All you need to do is bring your beautiful creative self.
Come dressed as one of the 5 ELEMENTS: Earth, Air, Water, Earth, and Ether. Like each element containing its own unique property and working simultaneously to create one united universe, we will use the night to come together united. This is a ladies only event!

Join Ashley Dequilla for an abstract figure painting workshop that uses approaches to painting and drawing the body that do not rely on the gendered gaze typical of traditional figure painting. Students will explore abstraction in conjunction with meditation and bodily awareness to increase confidence in intuitive art-making and encourage unique explorations of painting. Built on an understanding of art as a mental wellness tool, the workshop will double as an informal support group, encouraging community building and open and safe discussion of the body within art and society. No previous experience required, all are welcome.
