Creative Awakening

Art Teacher in Vancouver, BC

INTUITIVE PAINTING    - Create from the Soul to Expand the Heart

~ First-time painters can learn to draw and paint easily and confidently in a stress-free environment.

~ Skilled artists can release blocks and reach beyond their eyes into their inner vision and discover a new way of creating.

~ Artist quality supplies are provided, students do not need to purchase anything.

~ Small class size insures personal interaction.    NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED


CREATIVE GOALS - Creativity should be a surprise. If you already know what you are going to express there is less room for new experience. When you reach a space in a painting where you feel blocked, relax, keep painting; it will become what it wants, when it wants. Feeling lost when you begin a painting is good. Become familiar with being lost; this is the way we find new and exciting things that we never thought possible. These “difficult” areas often become our most beautiful expressions. As in life, difficult moments are often followed by an opening, an understanding, an opportunity for growth.

~ Each student is encouraged to reach their inner vision and to allow their feelings to be expressed in their art.

~ The emphasis is on learning to paint from your heart and soul, a healing process to assist you in gaining inner strength and inner vision.

~ There is no attempt to conform your painting to any other artist thus there is no competition or criticism, only positive assistance in bringing out a desired effect.

~ Depending on ability, students will learn to prepare their paper or canvas and learn techniques for applying acrylic paint to give different effects.

It is very exciting to learn to allow images to grow from the paint on the canvas, the results can be unique and always surprising.
