Invitation

Join Paola Beck on the magical island of Corsica where we will reconnect to nature, our bodies and minds, through painting, yoga and meditation. Painting is an instinct, follow yours and discover how drawing and painting can give you peace of mind, a greater connection to yourself and your inherent creative spirit. This unique retreat will include nature painting, art theory, free flow sketching, meditative nature walks combining perspective, depth of field and nature as art. Guided evening visualisation meditation work connected to art and so much more.. Previous Retreat : http://paolabeck.com/blog/?category_name=workshop 

Benefits

You will learn to observe nature from a totally new perspective, as you refine your eye you’ll be able to represent it through different techniques such as pencil, water colour and acrylics. Nature has been the most represented subject together with the human body since our first rituals and depictions on the walls of caverns. I believe everyone has an artist inside, it’s just about loosing our fear, letting go and going with the flow.

About Paola Beck

Paola Beck is a Mexican-German nomad artist who currently lives and works in Rome, Italy. She studied Illustration but then started painting more and more, and for the last 6 years she has focused mainly on murals, always looking for a positive and constructive message to share. Respecting and honoring nature and our roots has become her main goal.

She has taught in elementary schools and universities across Mexico and has participated in various life drawing and painting workshops. She found a beautiful way of connecting minds and unblocking many of her students that have had the interest in starting to draw or paint through teaching people that never thought it could be possible.

She has painted in artist residencies in Mexico, USA and Switzerland, and has shown her illustrations, paintings and sculptures in various solo and group exhibitions across the world. website : http://www.paolabeck.com
