The Creative Process
The creative process is an organic, intuitive experience that unfolds in ways akin to those of mother nature. A ‘conversation’ with the art work takes place where the journey is more important than the result and insights reveal themselves in ways that wouldn’t usually be possi-ble. The experience can range from being light and playful to deeply cathartic depending on the inner needs of the participant. The experi-ence is non-judgmental. No previous art experience is necessary.

Intuitive Yoga
SomaSensing with Nicholas McLean is an intuitive movement therapy which is the perfect compliment to intuitive artmaking. Nicholas assists participants to release tension in the body and calm the mind, ready to create. The nervous system is nurtured with pandiculation, a ‘body yawn’ sensation, and move-ment. Unwind, stretch, yawn and Tap into the wisdom of your body through this somatic approach based on Fascia.

MORE ABOUT ARTEMIS
Artemis is the ancient Greek goddess of the moon and untamed places. Guardian of our imagination and wild natures. Artemis in Franschhoek is the home to artist and wilderness gardener Andrea Desmond-Smith. It includes a labyrinth, the axis of which is orientated on a special mountain which Andrea calls “Mother Mountain”. A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. The Labyrinth represents a journey to our own center and back again out into the world. Artemis also incudes the Salamander Lounge. Being hexagonal, it encompasses stunning views over the world renowned vineyards of the Franschhoek valley, with the eternal mountains as a backdrop. Artemis consists of 3 ha. of wild indigenous gardens with lily ponds. Andrea is a mytho-poetic artist and her creations can be appreciated amongst the natural landscape of Artemis. Her paintings can be viewed at Artemis.
