Painting From Within
– Intuitive Painting Classes for Women –
Are you ready to experience the complete freedom, joy and personal insight that intuitive painting has to offer? Are you ready to explore painting without comparison, judgement or expectations? Are you more interested in exploring your inner creative well-spring than you are having to create outcomes that measure up to others’ expectations? And, finally, are you open to learning more about what makes you, the creative, tick? Then this series of intuitive painting classes is definitely for you!
These classes will be held in a small group setting and are specifically designed for those new to intuitive painting and painting with acrylics. You will be introduced to intuitive painting in a safe, friendly and inspiring atmosphere along with other like-minded women. Within that space, you’ll be free to explore painting on your own terms, free from critique and judgement.
Each session begins with us gathering in a circle to ground and become present, along with a short activity to get you into your body and mind ready for the session! We’ll then move into an acrylics and mixed-media technique demonstration (I’ll show you all the basics you’ll need to get started), after which you’ll try them for yourself. Then, and most importantly, you’ll have time to immerse yourself in painting (each week there’ll be a different prompt to get you started) in a mindful, relaxing state while listening to gentle instrumental music. After that, you’ll work on your creative journal where you will reflect on how you experienced the session and record what you’ve learned (you’ll also be encouraged to use your journal to record your ideas, insights and inspirations outside class time as well). Finally, we’ll gather in a circle again to share (totally optional!) and close the session.
Please bring your own materials (see the Materials List below), comfortable clothing suitable for painting, and an open mind. My hope for you is that by embracing the possibility that you have all you need within, you will discover what intuitive painting offers in terms of joyful self-expression and heightened sense of well-being.
