Why paint in water?

Water pampers us and teaches us how to breathe in a different way, a method that can be useful in situations of stress or anxiety. And it teaches us a fundamental part of our lives that we often forget as we grow up - it teaches us to play.

Let yourself be captivated by the lights and colours of the ocean, and experience them directly on canvas without intermediaries!

Painting in water awakens ancient memories (cellular memory) and deep emotions.

In just a few centimetres of water, every perception changes and is transformed.

The experience is suitable for everyone!

You can paint underwater using a container with a little water from the Ocean and immersing only your canvas, hands and part of your arms; sitting on the shore of the Ocean; entering the Ocean in a bay protected from the currents, where you can comfortably touch yourself, or deciding to float and put your head in the water with a mask and snorkel or with a regulator.

Your body relaxes and becomes light, your movements become less awkward, you perceive your body differently. Painting in this context changes completely.

The colours glide clear and pure over the surface of the painting.

It becomes a meditation, a journey into ourselves.

This is how artist Ely Phenix comes to paint underwater with more than 30 years of underwater experience under her belt. And she becomes one of the very few artists in the world to try her hand at this very special technique. The only art therapist who has made the ocean her therapeutic setting.

Together with the psychomotor therapist, the art therapist takes you on an introspective journey, through which, thanks to the Oceano and creativity, you can:

  • experience a new way of painting
  • stimulate oculo-manual coordination
  • work on the visual field
  • calm anxiety
  • find different ways of psychophysical relaxation
  • observe the surrounding reality from a different point of view
  • experience lightness of body, mind and soul
  • stimulate concentration

The Art Therapist and the Psychomotricist therapist are always accompanied by one or more experienced underwater instructors who assist her during each underwater art therapy session, as required.

One does not need to be a professional diver to participate in this experience, as it is adapted to each person's abilities and needs.
