Welcome to emerge!
A collaboration of creative art in movement and visual art
Welcome in 2017 and the summer season with a two-day collaborative journey into creative art through movement and mark-making located in the beautiful South Coast of NSW. Artists Debora di Centa and Jeni McMillan are hosting a journey in the studio and in nature designed to enrich your creativity and express your pure potential by using right brain thinking. Nature inspires and regenerates our body, mind and soul, building new connection through playfulness and organic interaction, allowing us to discover and emerge.
During this two-day workshop, we will invite you to work individually and collaboratively in a positive and supporting environment. You could be a perfect beginner wanting to explore or a professional visual and/or dance artist curious about new possibilities. Experience the physicality of your body in motion and delight in that sweet spot where your mind is free to create, in the beautiful setting of the South Coast.

About the Artists
