Facilitated by Sharen Chatterton and Karen Rester
Invite yourself to emotionally relax, let whatever you need to know come out in colors, shapes, designs and imagery. Let go of your everyday, accomplishing mind, so that those hidden parts of self can arise and open your heart to aspects of yourself through art. Keep your mind and body open to intuitive insight. Practice playing, loosening up, freeing and opening up your creativity. Join Sharen Chatterton and Karen Rester, as they lead you along this path of expressing those feelings, emotions and thoughts through painting in various mediums.
“I’ve been absolutely terrified every moment of my life and I’ve never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do.” -Georgia O’Keefe
Painting intuitively is a process, one that if pursued, will make what is unconscious conscious. It will allow you to find your medicine. To becoming more awake and alive. More whole. More real. More authentic. More you. To developing an unshakeable alliance with your inner wisdom and your inner healer. Paint what feels good, you should end up with art that is positive or meaningful. This is processed based painting, based on mindfulness, creative permission and the act of spontaneous expression.
