About us

This workshop is a playful exploration of the creative image-making process. Utilizing imagery inspired from our own personal stories and life experience, we will engage in a hands-on journey through fundamental painting principles, and learn how to sustain our own creative momentum. Throughout the week, we will work on a series of small paintings on wood panels, often working on several pieces simultaneously, which leaves little time to worry about success or failure. We will also explore how themes of change and spontaneity enable us to create our own unique artwork, and illuminate life lessons inherent in the creative process. We seek to engage both sides of the brain, and invite in mistakes, intuition, and spontaneity. We’ll explore the six ArtLife Creativity Principles: value, design, color, texture, risk, and soul. Generous time will be given for experimentation with new tools, mediums, and techniques.

Join us as we celebrate a process of inspiration, reclamation, and the journey of self-discovery through painting. This workshop is designed for people from a wide variety of disciplines. All skill levels are welcome. No artistic experience is necessary, only a willingness to play. This workshop is especially useful for those in the healing and helping professions in working with their patients and clients.

All materials will be provided. However, if you would like to bring an item that is particular to your practice, then we of course encourage you to do so.

($245 materials fee will be added to the workshop cost, and includes everything needed for the course)
