Genesis art workshops are for both residents in Japan and foreign visitors who are here for a short time. In the space of a few hours, you’ll come away refreshed and even with a new perspective on your creativity, and how to add more of it to daily life.

Drawing, then writing down insights that you get from your drawing, becomes joyfully easy when you randomly select a Genesis Card–one of 44 uplifting, colorful, childlike images–to both inspire and mirror what you’ve just crated.

There’s no need to bring anything but a B4 sketchbook and your cell phone for taking pictures of your art. Everything else is provided — including the tea and light snacks.

This workshop is limited to six people so please sign up early to reserve your space.

Workshop fee: ¥3,000
Special Spring Offer 3/8-6/20: Introduce a friend to any Genesis Art Workshop and receive a free deck of Genesis Cards as a thank you gift–¥3000 value!

I went to your workshop for some inspiration this weekend. Oh! I was amazed by your technique and how everyone responded to drawing pictures that somehow matched these little cards with incredible imagery. You really worked some magic that day, Liane! Ruby O, California/Japan
