Spontaneous expression helps you connect to deeper parts of yourself and the realm of intuition, inspiration, and infinite possibilities.
This workshop combines meditation with drawing and an emphasis on stream drawing, abstraction and introspection. Participants will engage in guided meditation sessions, followed by non-traditional drawing exercises while using music to bring about spontaneous inspiration.
When you play, you engage the creative side of your brain and silence your “inner editor,” that psychological barrier that censors your thoughts and ideas. This can often help you see the problem in a new light and think up fresh, creative solutions. The minute you have students think visually-to draw shapes, lines and/or move rather than sit and write bullet points – something different happens in the room. It’s a process, not a single event, and genuine creative processes involve critical thinking as well as imaginative insights and fresh idea.
The classes are for novice and experienced artists alike and are held in small groups in my art studio or can be held at a business if the space permits.

Your mind, your fears, and emotions momentarily get out of the way, allowing you to hear the messages from your intuition — messages that your intuition is always sending you, but that usually get drowned out by all the other noise and stress inside your head.
