I had never heard of it. So let me tell you a bit more about it 😊
Actually, it was a traditional drawing and painting technique from the Australian Aboriginals. It's a form of art that brings peace and tranquility. It raises awareness and brings you back to your true self.
Dot painting makes you forget everything around you. Out of your mind and into your heart.
Sounds great.....Don't you agree 😊
That is why Natashja created the Dotpoint Academy
She sees the pleasure it brings to people to find their inner peace in this hectic world. The need for inner peace and self-fulfillment is large in Belgium and the Netherlands.
Unity consciousness seems to grow and people like to join each other to create in freedom. It's a form of Art Therapy, and people find it to be very relaxing. It taps into their creative ability that is present in every one of us.
The new trend is to fight burnout by dot painting. With the hypnotizing paint-drop patterns made on stones, canvas, and wood. Drawing for adults was a trend already and now dot painting has been added to that trend. It seems as if the increase of stress and burnout has also had its effect on creative workshops. Creativity to find peace and quiet in your head and focus on yourself.
Natashja started dot painting herself to take the mind of her own illness. She conquered breast cancer and needed something to make her relax during this process of recovery. This dotting had such a big impact on her health that she started her website https://www.natashja.nl/. This became such a success that she decided to lead others so that they would be able to lead their own workshops. And that is how her www.dotpaint-academy.nl came to be.
But let me show you some of those pieces of Art that Natashja created 😃
They look really cool..... don't you agree? If you are thinking.....I want to be able to do that too.....you can find a lot of workshops on her website too 😃
