About my classes
My Go with the Flow / Painting Made Easy classes for both adults and children involves a playful and spirited approach to creating richly satisfying Art. I provide a space to explore your creativity in colorful, achievable ways; enabling you to make works that feel nourishing to your creative Spirit. We will paint and engage our senses as we create.
Please note my classes are all about enjoying the process, not just creating a perfect finished pieces! (Although I really believe you’ll love the creation process) Instead, I will guide you to connect with your creative right brain and explore how that looks and feels in paint. It's a fun journey!
Do I need any experience?
Absolutely not. This is a workshop suitable for beginners to seasoned Artists alike, because we are focusing on exploring our creative selves with color. I have been teaching for over 20 years and I have a knack for sharing easy techniques and art hacks in inspiring, achievable ways. You simply need to be open to exploring your own right brain.
Do I need to be able to draw?
No, absolutely not - but you can! Painting Made Easy is not about perfection, but rather creating layers and symbols in your work. Everyone can draw using right brain techniques. I’ve taught hundreds of students to create, draw, and paint things they never thought they could and they’re blown away by the end result! So, you don't need to be able to draw conventionally. It’s a win-win!
What if I don't like my work?
You might or you might not like your work, but what's important is that Painting Made Easy is a process and you're taking time to enjoy yourself NOW. Art is a way to access the creative right brain part of ourselves - it's all about willingness and courage to grow. There may be in-between stages you feel challenged by - it happens to me all the time! I’ll be there to guide you every step of the way. Trust yourself and keep going. The mistakes often turn into my best paintings!
Can I get one-on-one coaching / teaching from you?
I offer 8-week one on one coaching packages to a select number of clients every two months. To dive into the possibility, answer the questions here and snag a free Creative Clarity 30 minute session with me to decide if we’re a good fit and how I can help you on your creative path.
Is this an Art Therapy course?
No. Many creative processes I employ are naturally nourishing; however my classes are not a substitute for medicinal or counselling support. I am an Intuitive Artist, not an Art Therapist and am unable to offer any counselling support.
THE FINE PRINT:
My Painting Made Easy classes involve accessing our left/ right brain, group-work and inner emotions and feelings for inspiration. If you have experienced acute, long-term physical or mental health conditions, stepping into bodily feelings could be a challenging resource to work with, especially within a community environment. Please use your own intuition and discretion as to whether this feels like a perfect fit for you, as I am unable to provide professional medical support. We all need to feel safe to shine!
