Announcing Summer 2017 Intuitive Painting Weekend “STEPPING OUTSIDE THE EGO AND CREATING FROM WITHIN” July 15-16 2017, at my studio in North Portland

Posted in Art, Art Workshops, Authentic Creativity, Authentic Self, Developing Intuition, Inner Wisdom, Intuitive Painting, Painting Workshops, Self Awareness, Self Discovery, Self Healing, Shamanic Art on May 26, 2017 by Carolyn Winkler

Save the date and let me know you can join us. The class is small limited to 8 students and there are only 4 spaces left at this time.

This Intuitive Painting Weekend will be about learning to let go of  ego and painting from your deeper parts. You will learn to be outside of judgement and  let go of the critic and how it often holds you back. We will be free to explore and let the paint tell us what we need to know. The creativity inside us knows what we need and will send it to us if we make a space for it to come. By playing with paint and following it where it wants you to go you learn a lot about yourself.  You will also be a witness and share with the others what you learn.  It is important to do this in a group and share the experience,  we learn a lot from each other each time.

I have been doing this workshop for over 10 years now and am still amazed how fun and transformation this process is. I think it is because it can only come from inside, not from outside influences, so it always amazes you and strengthens your sense of self.  It is my honor to share this with you and help you have a better life.

Any one can do this no previous art experience required. I supply everything, all you need to do is come and participate and enjoy what wants to come.

All you have to do is wear old clothes you can get paint on and bring a sac lunch. I will provide the rest.  Healthy snacks and teas.

The workshops starts each morning at 10am and goes to 5pm. I ask that you arrive between 9:30 and 9:50 so we can start right on time.

The cost is $180 for first time participants and discounted to $160 for students taking it the second or multiple time. Many of my students have taken it 4 or 5 times.  Each time you go deeper and discover different things.

Please email me if you would like to be put on the list, there are only 4 spaces left. I look forward to painting with you and seeing old friends again.

LET’S PAINT AND HAVE SOME CREATIVE FUN.

I am calling this Intuitive Painting Weekend “WE’RE GOING IN”  because that is what one of my former students called it and what we actually do.  In this wonderful weekend of playing with paint we GO IN” and find the creative parts of ourselves we know are there. These are our authentic parts that want to guide us and give us the best lives possible.

I truly attribute my wonderful life to doing this work, because what we learn about ourselves during this weekend gives us a stronger sense of self and helps us create truer more fulfilling  lives.

Every Intuitive Weekend is different because I am different and share with you any new revelations I have found.  So no matter if your a first timer or have done it many times I promise you will grow.

I look forward to painting with your and sharing this process and seeing the wonderful paintings that come.  We GO IN without a plan, without knowing and what is revealed thru the paint is just what we need.   I love what John Kleese said about creativity.  “You need a space, you need time, you need more time, you need courage and you need a sense of humor.  If you are too serious you kill creativity.”  I give you all of these.

The cost is $180 for the 2 days of painting, Saturday and Sunday 10-5.  All paints, materials and inspiration are provided.  All you have to do is wear old clothes you can get paint on and come hold a paint brush and let the paint take you where you need to go.   Limited to 8 students so save the date and let me know right away so i can put you on the list.

* All repeating students cost is discounted to $100.

To register and ask questions just email me carolyn_winkler@comcast.net or call me at 503 734-6516 .    Look forward to painting with you in this new year.

Announcing Spring “INVOKING THE SPIRITS WITHIN – INTUITIVE PAINTING WEEKEND” May 18th-19th at my studio in North Portland.

This weekend we will take blank sheets of paper and thru them discover the deep personal mythologies we hold inside. In the fun of being creative, letting go, letting come you will discover deeper parts of yourself you didn’t know. It is an inward hero’s journey, taking you to wonderful places and like any transformational experience, gives you a new stronger sense of who you are. Sometimes it is very subtle, sometimes really extraordinary, one thing I can guarantee Your Life Will Change.  One of my former students said it best “my life was like a submarine and this opened up my hatch.”  We could all use some hatch opening I suspect and what more gentle, fun, easy way to do just that.

It is really powerful to do this as a group and see everyone’s paintings and watch them change over the weekend.  It is probably why so many students take it several times.  We learn so much from each other as we paint together and share our experience.  It is a way to recharge. There is no right or wrong way to do this and you need no previous art experience, you have all the skill you need. If you can hold a paintbrush the process with do the rest. We are all creative it just hasn’t been nurtured in our lives.  Intuitive Painting is perfect for that.

All you have to do is wear old clothes you can get paint on, bring a sac lunch and I will provide the rest.  If you are a professional artist I highly recommend a weekend like this to re-spark your art. This is about the spirit within you not better techniques of art.  If you are a writer what better way to explore your personal myths for future development.  Great stories come out of these paintings.  The important thing is to not think about that when your doing the process.  “First you paint, let the spirits come to you, then you relate.”

The workshop goes from 10 to 5 on Saturday and Sunday, All art materials I provided and the cost is really reasonable, $160 for both the days. I keep the classes small, limited to 8 students.  Let me know right away if you want to join.

So is it time to do something creative for yourself and join fellow travelers on this journey Invoking the Spirits Within?  We all have creative parts of us wanting to be let out and help us with our lives, let the process begin.  Remember when you were a child, no one had to teach you to paint, and when you painted you didn’t care what anyone else was painting or what they though. You just painted what you wanted, it is kinda like that. I love what someone said once “No one ever doesn’t like a child’s painting.”  This is true, because there is no ego involved it just pure expression.  Get ready for a weekend like that.

To register just email me or message me on Facebook and I will add you to the list.  If you have taken my workshop before you get a discount and can repeat the weekend for $100. Look forward to painting with you, holding the space and meeting your spirits within.

If you have any questions please feel free to email me or call 503 734-6516.  Attached are two paintings from a previous workshop a few years ago.  Might be fun to make up a story about them and what myth might be going on.  They came from not knowing, not having a plan but as you can see they hold so much.  We are going to have fun.

Announcing New Spring INTUITIVE PAINTING Workshop “HONORING THE RAVEN WITHIN YOU”- May 26-27, 2012 at my studio Spirit Mask Journeys North Portland, Oregon.

My new Intuitive Painting Weekend focuses on the Trans-formative Powers of the Raven to help you be more creative and self expressive in your life.  According to Zuni legends Ravens have a magic and special ability to transform and heal.  They offer guidance for deep understanding of our non material realms were all creativity and healing begins. One of the most important things you can ever do is be creative, express yourself and bring it to the world.   Join me in this Magical Weekend as we play with paint, honor the spirit of Raven and explore our deepest selves.

I chose to honor the spirit of Raven because of personal experiences I have had.  The most powerful being when a Raven actually landed on my shoulder while I was walking in the forest with one of my Medicine Wheel Sisters last summer.   This year on my travels to Tucson I bought 3 Zuni Fetishes, 2 Ravens and 1 Six Direction Bear from a distinguished Zuni carver at the Native American Art Festival.  It was because of these fetishes and wanting to learn more about them in Zuni Mythology that I discovered the direct connection to their powers and the power of Intuitive Painting to guide you to the creative realm.  I look forward to exploring with you what Raven wants you to know.

There is room for 8 students in this class so register early.  No previous art experience needed, if you can hold a paint brush you can do this.  If you are an experienced artist this can help you learn a new way to paint or breakout of any any artistic ruts. The cost is $160 for the 2 days of painting, Saturday and Sunday 10-5, and all paints, matierals and inspiration are provided.  All you have to do is wear old clothes you can get paint on and come and let go.  All repeating students and the cost is discounted $100.  To register or ask questions just email me carolyn_winkler@comcast.net .    Look forward to painting with you.
