Tracie Peisley has over 30 years’ experience as an Artist, therapist and teacher. She first went to Greece in 1993 where she had a formative wilderness experience living an elemental life on a mountain on Lesvos. Finding her core strengths and growing exponentially through her relationship with Art, nature, and the Greek community she has since developed a programme of creative activities and experiences, informed by her training as a teacher and an Art Therapist, facilitating well-being and community groups in Greece and the UK for adults and children. She creates a responsive programme which aims to soothe the body and soul, support the creative process, negotiate blocks to playful engagement with materials and celebrate one’s strengths and qualities.
“Thank you Tracie, thank you, thank you… you made us feel in our element, leading us gently through ourselves, making, sharing, loving… it really was fantastic, inspiring, positive, creative, reassuring… I had the most wonderful time and would like to go again next year please!” Nathalie Banaigs, Kent Creative Arts
“One of the best weeks of my life! A totally magical time with the very best of friends, sharing a place that now has a place in my heart.” Max Kimber, Artist
One can expect:
Opportunities for reflection on the unconscious fears and desires through a daily ritual of making mandalas.
To Develop confidence in drawing, painting and sculpting through traditional guided lessons in looking and making.
Facilitated opportunities to play with materials, to be experimental and find confidence in using what emerges.
To hear something of Tracie’s knowledge and awareness of the full range of making from studying universal symbolism, Artists and sculptors from the earliest mark makers to the present day.
To have experiences that feed the senses, go to locations and interact creatively with the self and the elements available. These can include using words, gathering and making and expression with the body and voice.
People leave one place to encounter another, there is the opportunity of seeing everything afresh.
To discover some places we can immerse ourselves in and feel we are wholly present in a new place, this is part of the experience Tracie aims to give.
A home owner in Lesvos and Thassos and speaking Greek Tracie delights in sharing her personal connection.
