‘The Essence of Me’ workshop & art exhibition

Cas di Cultura – Aruba’s Cultural Platform since 1958 presents Mindful Art (abstract) workshops & Art exhibition ‘The Essence of Me’ by local artist Sharina Gumbs on September 28, 29, 30 & October 1st, 2020.

Soul2Soul-Mindful Art Gallery (Aruba) is facilitating a 3-day series of Mindful Art workshops in Cas di Cultura. With Mindful Art, participants let go of the anxiety that these difficult times bring, de-stress and create their own reality while also challenging themselves in a fun way to work on self-development. On October 1st participants can show off their self-made art to the public in an art exhibition, together with exhibited artworks by local abstract artist Sharina Gumbs.

Workshop # 1 (September 28th)

‘Refill your cup with authenticity’, winner of the cultural award ‘De Gouden C’ 2019 in the Netherlands. In this workshop a stressful moment is artificially created and participants are challenged to reflect on how they deal with unexpected situations. In the meantime they learn basic skills to make a beautiful abstract artwork.

Workshop #2 (September 29th):

‘Reality-Check’. Discover how powerful you really are! In this workshop we challenge our own core beliefs that normally are not even questioned. By being aware of core beliefs, we have the power to create and re-shape our own reality. And by doing so, regain some kind of control of our lives when facing exterior factors that impact us. In this workshop you will explore how dealing with the effects of COVID has made an impact on your life. In this workshop you will use this experience as a source of inspiration for an abstract artwork that will express who you are as an individual. On the other hand your artwork will form part of a composition of artworks of all the workshop participants. Being an individual and still being part of a community is important in this workshop and we are using that as an inspiration for your artwork.

Workshop #3 (September 30th):

‘Design your personality’. In this workshop, participants use a dry fit t-shirt as their canvas and express their unique personality in an abstract artwork that they can wear.

Workshop #4 (October 1st):

‘The Essence of Me’. This art exhibition will be a representation of the works of local abstract artist Sharina Gumbs. During this exhibition participants of the 3 workshops will also have the opportunity to exhibit their artworks and share their experiences with an audience of family, friends and other art lovers.
