What is Intuition Painting®?
Imagine being in a room with many jars of colorful paints, oversized easels with lots of room for exploring with color and form surrounded by an air of abundance, safety, and inspiration, and creativity coaching to help you dive in and let go. Our approach makes painting seem almost like dreaming on paper - images and colors bubble up from within, expanding, taking shape, changing form, without any preconceived expectations. The benefits extend well beyond the time you are in the art studio, as you'll discover how creative intuition brings flow into your life. Learn more.
The Beginner's Mind
For some of you, it may have been decades since you painted. It will be surprising to you how quickly you will reconnect with the joy playing with colors and following the fun. For others, you may make art for a living, and are feeling the need to begin making art for yourself again.
However you arrive, our time spent in creative unfolding will result in the appearance of mysterious figures and shapes that do wonderful things for our minds and hearts. We will surprise ourselves, invite imagination to rule for a while, experience peacefulness, and remember how it feels to just to be.
