PAINT, MEDITATE AND CREATE TOGETHER A GIANT COLLECTIVE WORK WITH THE ARTIST
No experience in painting nor meditation needed.
International Organizations such as the UN, UNESCO, the EU Commission working on Climate change, migration or associations such as the Red Cross, Surfrider Association and others arising from crisis who wish to create a new peaceful experience prior to a conference, an important event, a vote, or the creation of a new team or life experience in a new country or challenging situation can collectively create an artpiece with a moment of silence with the artist Nathalie ISHIZUKA. At such events, the painting could be accompanied by local musicians or poet readings.
The breath in as we paint is always silence (if we emit a thought we can not recieve tremendous gifts from the universe), the breath out with the painting stroke is us giving back and it can be left to the choice of the individual or group : peace, love, radiance, creativity, unity, health, compassion, wisdom, transparence, humility, strength, joy. One large painting or several large ones can be created depending on the size of the group and where they would be displayed as well as the material used (recycled canvas from a sail boat, traditional canvass or other).
