Rise Above, with Creative Visionary Whitney Freya
I’m delighted to announce a very special event—Rise Above, with Creative Visionary Whitney Freya. Whitney Freya, my friend and creative mentor, is in Toronto for one night only on Friday, May 26th from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Shecosystem Co-working + Wellness.
Shecosystem (and me) Christine Pensa of Art That Moves present this evening of inspiration and creating with Whitney to celebrate the launch of her new book, Rise Above, Free Your Mind One Brushstroke at a Time.
You’ll hear Whitney’s inspirational, creative story, and her warm advice on how you can free your mind of limitations—and wield a paintbrush like a magic wand.
After her talk, you’ll pick up your magic paintbrush and paint your own set of wings. Whitney and Christine will create a safe and joy-filled space for your to explore—in Whitney’s words—new landscapes of possibility.
