About Emilia 

Movement & Art is an eight week online programme exploring the sensorial, imaginative and creative experience while developing skills through movement and spontaneous visual art.


Tutor Emilia Rubio has designed the programme to include breathing and stretching exercises, hand dances and drawing following the rhythm of music. You will learn how to relax and feel comfortable in an enjoyable and safe environment.


Each session incorporates multiple artistic themes, acknowledging your expressive interpretations and exploring the process rather than the final work.


Māpura Studios will supply the art materials for free. No previous experience in dance or visual art is required. Dress comfortably and welcome to Movement & Art!
