SoulFlower Essence Painting
You may have seen this piece in my studio, I created her last year and love how she turned out, and now I want to offer you a chance to paint your own SoulFlower Essence! We will be using the Intentional Creativity Method to tap into our creativity and discover what flower medicine is helpful to us. Mine here was sunflower which was a reminder to me to be confident and radiant and stand tall! What will yours be? You will also be able to chose from my SoulFlower cards as a guide during this process. Spring is a great time to reset ourselves and move forward with claiming who we are and where we are going. I will guide you on this process with layout, color theory and composition. We will practice making marks to easily create her face and neck so you are confident in painting her. You need not have any painting experience just an open mind to the process of uncovering what is within you! We will be painting on a long canvas.

Adult Painting, drawing or mixed media 4 Classes
These classes are beginner level, you want to create for fun, need some coaxing and are open to the journey to discover. The perfectionist may decide to come to class, but will quickly leave when it sees you are creating with JOY. You will learn techniques in letting go and trusting the process. You will find what lights you up, what excites you in creating. You will learn many techniques and tips in your media of choice such as composition, structure, hue, foreground/midground/background, color choices, tools and demos.
Session 2 Tuesdays TBD DAYS 12:00 - 2:00pm
ALL Materials Included
Outdoor Botanical Wellness Journal
Nature is our inner healer, she soothes us with beauty and energy, allowing mind, body and soul to heal and renew. Walk in nature, observe plants and insects in their habitat and sunlight reflecting through leaves and flowers. Take photos of interesting textures and colors found only in nature. When we "micro observe" our surroundings, we begin to see we are all connected, and tiny miracles are happening all around us!
Using the Intentional Creativity method, you will reflect on what personal information is evident through nature for you at this time. With this revelation, you will sketch and watercolor interesting botanical plants, birds, color schemes, etc. that are found around you. Your journal will be unique to you, with your focus being on the process of creating the beauty rather than the end result. You may want to include inspiring words, poetry, observations and revelations! This is a very freeing way to allow yourself to create without listening to our negative inner critic. As always, I will lead you through class and demo ideas along with inquiry.
Students will need to bring:
-8x10 or larger mixed media journal
-Phone or camera to take pictures
-Blanket or cushion if needed
-Bottle of water for cleaning brushes
(I will supply all other supplies)
