IN Coorg, Karnataka
A 4-Day Artcation amidst the coffee and tea estates of Coorg
let's travel outside, to dive within.
What is ARTCATION all about?
Picasso once said “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain one as we grow up.”
Reflecting on the same idea, Project Aaina brings to you an Artcation.
Wondering if you have to be an artist to join us? Well, let us give you some awesome news, you already are one! You do not have to be a master of the craft to know art. We are here to inculcate artistic expression through the free flow of conversations and experience. We paint and dance as a child does, not for a product but for expression. We help build a safe space for our guests to explore their creativity, build meaningful connections and share their stories. With intense research and spiritual application, we have curated sessions that allow our guests to establish a deeper connection with their emotions, letting go of the self they have created to reach out to the self that sits within. It's not about creating “a good-looking artwork” it’s about the process, the energy, and conversations with people that flow into your canvas.
The sessions include art and movement-based activities, musical activities, and interactive activities such as painting, yoga, meditation and sound healing to name a few. We potently believe & actively endorse Art as a “Process” and not as a “Product”, enabling people to reclaim their relationship with Art.
NOTE: You don’t need to have any kind of background in Art or be an Artist. It’s about flowing from one medium to another.
The fee includes a very comfortable four night and five days stay in RoseWood homestay on four-sharing basis so you can come with friends or make new ones
* There is a double occupancy room available at an extra charge to the present budget*
