Watercolor for Those Who Don’t Think They Can (Mar. 1-2)
Explore the world of watercolor and discover the beauty of your own creativity. Artist and art educator Marla Snyder brings her signature workshop to Red Mountain. Inspired by her own experiences teaching herself to draw and paint, her method encourages students to take liberties with their interpretations rather than trying to be picture-perfect. No experience required – just the desire to learn.

Astrology and Creativity (Apr. 19-21)
Discover the power of the four elements and embrace your creativity with author, artist, and astrologer Leslie McGuirk. Far more complex than reading your horoscope in the back of a magazine, astrology charts – the map of where all the planets were at the time and place of someone’s birth – are our natural patterns, and Leslie can reveal the insight hidden in yours. Delving into “The Quest for Inspiration” will demonstrate ways we can awaken the originality and childlike sense of wonder within all of us.
Therapeutic Yoga (Apr. 26-29)
The wellness benefits of yoga for both the body and mind are immense, whether you’re seeking to manage stress, get out of pain, recover from injury, improve sleep, or increase your flexibility. Certified yoga therapist Sharon Holly will lead a variety of classes, including yoga nidra, aqua kriya yoga, therapeutic yoga, and TRE®, plus a workshop on navigating the nervous system and customized one-on-one sessions. Gain a sense of empowerment and balance through these ancient healing techniques.

She will also be available for private holistic energy healing and balancing consultations.
