Settle your body. Take a deep breath and relax even further as you exhale. Our fast paced technological world can complicate our lives, causing more anxiety and stress. The reFRESH project is about taking a mental breather through creative play. Our goal is to clear the mental garbage from your day, and then lead you on a journey exploring your artistic state. Allowing your imagination to run wild will lead to a creative insight you can apply to your photography business.
This 2 hour “retreatinar” will be limited to the first 25 people.
