I feel like it’s important for me to share that my idea for Art & Agave stems from something that I believe in so strongly: that each and every person is a creative, and has the ability to engage in art making regardless of training, experience or skill level.
Making art doesn’t mean you always end up with something you love, but that while you are doing it, it somehow changes you- or maybe it ignites something inside of you that you may not know you even suppressed. I mainly use this method of painting when I need to reconnect with my inner self, my environment, or just meditate and escape. I love watching the colors pool and interact with each other, and it becomes an act of letting go and not focusing on the end result. It’s all about being present in the moment and putting all of your intention into the process.
In this workshop you use the paint and canvas as a medium of discovery & transformation, the whole concept is designed around the individual, and each painting is truly unique.
I believe Agave (meaning tequila & mezcal) is the perfect thing to pair with this type of art making being that it also is a deeply rooted process, yet each master distiller has their own fingerprint when it comes to how they craft their spirit. I believe in order for us to truly understand how artisanal tequila truly is, we must involve ourselves in the act of creating as well.
If any of this sounds good to you, I hope to have you at the next workshop! -xoxo, kendall
