Create art you will treasure for a lifetime as you celebrate or heal together as a family.
Family Art Rituals with Dana da Ponte are four hour sessions where you and your family come to the Moon Sisters Studio for the Visual and Healing Arts near Bragg Creek, AB and enjoy a soulful visual art ritual created by Dana to meet your family’s unique needs and preferences. No previous art experience necessary.
They are great for families who want to:
- Celebrate things like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, health recoveries, achieving a goal, winning a special game or event, graduation, births, marriage, winter or summer solstice, spring or fall equinox, full or new moon
- Support the family to move through transitions like new job, moving, adolescence, marriage, illness, divorce, adoption, death
- Help the family to overcome conflict or communication challenges
- or just because!
What are Art Rituals?
Art rituals are a set of creative steps and actions done in a pre-determined order to help you achieve an emotional or spiritual goal. When you book a Family Art Ritual, we’ll discuss the different types of creative actions found in my art rituals and together we can determine which steps your family will enjoy and which ones you’d rather not include.
My art rituals are very loose, flexible and creative. I don’t follow a specific dogma or belief system. I simply like to blend my love of nature and magic with my love of the creative arts.
Common tools that show up in my rituals are essential oils, crystals, rocks, oracle cards, candles and objects from nature like herbs, sticks and flowers. Since these are art rituals, I also include all my art supplies like paint, paper and glue as part of our ritual tools.
Family Art Rituals…
…start with a private one-on-one session where we talk about your goals for your Family Art Ritual and narrow down the type of visual art project you’d like your family to create. You can have serious goals like working through a difficult challenge affecting the family or you can have lighter goals like celebrating something together or simply wanting to enjoy art together.
Whatever your goals are, Family Art Rituals are about creating an unforgettable experience that is tailor made for you and your family while creating a work of art that you can proudly display and treasure as a meaningful keepsake for years to come.
Included in the Family Art Ritual Experience:
- One hour private session with Dana da Ponte
- Four hours of private studio time with Dana da Ponte.
- All supplies (Except canvases. We’ll discuss canvas sizes, types and costs during your pre-session conversation.)
- Set up and clean up taken care of for you.
- Snacks and beverages.
- An art ritual designed to help you move through struggles or celebrate milestones together as a family
- A finished work of collaborative art that captures your family’s unique story
Every Family is Unique
Every family is different and every family’s spiritual priorities are unique. Some enjoy a lot of ritual and a little art. Some enjoy a lot of art and just a teensy weensy bit of ritual. This is your family’s private studio time. I promise to create an experience that suits your family’s unique needs and preferences as much as possible.
I can also create your Family Art Ritual around topics such as,
- Intention Setting
- Body Image
- Guardian Angels
- Mother Wound
- Unconditional Love
- Divine Mother
How it Works:
After you book a Family Art Ritual, I’ll be in contact with you to set up our pre-session conversation where I’ll ask you questions and we’ll enjoy a deep dive kind of tête-à-tête. If appropriate, I’ll also connect to Spirit and communicate any suggestions or insights you might want to consider before we create your family art ritual.
Next, you’ll go home and I’ll prepare a soulful art journey that captures the intentions that are most important to your family at this specific time.
We’ll book studio time just for you and on that day your family will come and spend four hours completing the art journey I created specifically for them. I will have everything prepped and ready to go and I will lead and guide the art journey. You won’t have to take care of any of the details. Just come and enjoy the process.
Depending on your needs and preferences, you will leave with one big collaborative work of art that your family created together or small works that you each created separately.
Where the Magic Happens
The Family Art Rituals are held in the most precious place to me… The Moon Sisters Studio for the Visual and Healing Arts which is in my home in the idyllic town of Redwood Meadows, Alberta (near Bragg Creek).
The Moon Sisters Studio for the Visual and Healing Arts welcomes families of all kinds. Whether you are a nuclear family, a single parent family, a childless family, an extended family, a blended family, a polygamous family or a grandparent family. If you consider yourself a family, then I celebrate that family love with you.
