After 10 years of teaching Intuitive Painting I have decided to change the workshop to include more exploration of the images that arrive.  After all these years of doing this I know these images are powerful and give us inspiration on how to change and deepen our lives.  This information comes from the inside/out so fresh solutions are to be found.  Metaphors hold a lot of information and when we work with them we can heal, change and understand much more than we did before.

This time you will still let the images come without a plan but you will ask a question and ask the painting to give you the answer.  Together we will explore the deeper parts of the images and feel the changes in our bodies as well.  I look forward to exploring this new process with you and share with you what I have learned over my many years of living a life that has taught me how this all works.

No worries if you are a beginner and never taken this class or any other art class before.  All you have to do is come with an open heart and mind and the paint will take you where you need to go.  It will open the door for you and give you exactly what you need.  As one of my students once said “my life was like a submarine and this opened up the hatch.”  That is what I hope for you, to open up what’s inside of you through the fun of paint.  Such a simple creative act can really change your life.

Look forward to painting with you.  Each class is a new experience.  I don’t call my studio “Going Deep” just because it’s in my basement.  But because the basement is the perfect metaphor to break through the cement floor in the bottom of our psyche and let out the parts of us we buried there long ago.  I promise a powerful experience and hope you can join in.

Below are the details for the weekend.  See you all soon.

*If you are from out of town and have always wanted to visit Portland there are lots of airbnb’s around near the studio.

 

Any one can do this no previous art experience required. I supply everything, all you need to do is wear old clothes you can get paint on and enjoy what wants to come.

You will need to bring a sac lunch both days. I will provide healthy snacks and teas.  If you need anything else please bring it.  We will take several breaks including one lunch.

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 times. Many students take it 4 or 5 times.  So weather this is your first time or one of many I promise you a fun, creative, self discovery like nothing else you have done before.  Let us take a metaforey into our inner world.  Can’t wait.  Only 8 spaces so contact me right away if you want to join.  Email carolyn_winkler@comcast.net.  See you soon.

Please email me if you would like to be put on the list. I look forward to painting with you if your new and seeing old friends again.

Because of the Eclipse I had to cancel the August workshop.  So I am offering this October one as the last one of the year.  This time we will take a Shamanic Journey using paint.  We will ask the paint to give us information our life needs at this time.  It seems to be a very turbulent time and we could all use some wisdom from within to help us through the times ahead.  The paint will access that wisdom.  It will take us into non ordinary reality and show us what we need.  This process never fails to amaze me in showing my students strengths they didn’t know they had.  Save the date and let me know if you would like to join us for these two fabulous days of exploring our authentic selves.  Lets have some creative fun and let go as we explore that inner world that has no limits.

Any one can do this no previous art experience required. If you can hold a paint brush that is all you need.

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

We start each morning at 10am and go 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 multiple times. Many of my students take 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 6 spaces left. carolyn_winkler @comcast.net.  I look forward to painting with you and seeing old friends again.

This Intuitive Painting Weekend will be about learning to let go and being free to explore the images want to come and help you in your life.  The paint always tells us what we need to know.  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 always 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 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.

Join me in this weekend of INTUITIVE PAINTING “FINDING THE MAGIC IN ART” Many of you know that I use Intuitive Painting and haiku to add magic to my own life. Every time I do this workshop I see the magic come. I will teach you how to explore your inner world and how that can help you have a better life. Intuitive Painting is one of the best and most fun ways I have ever found to do this. Intuition uses images to communicate with us and if we learn to pay attention to those images we can make changes we want to make.

So take a weekend for yourself, learn to be in the magic and find the answers you seek. I can’t wait to see the paintings that want to come and share with you this experience.

Classes are limited to 8 painters so they fill up fast. Costs $180 for both days and includes all the paint and art supplies you need. So let me know as soon as possible you want to attend.

Let me know if you are ready to paint, and want to take part in this trans-formative weekend of finding those deep creative parts of your self burred long ago. Can’t wait to see what wants to come.

When I was traveling in Paris and Stockholm this summer I went to all the big Museums and the one thing I learned is that I love my students and my Intuitive Paintings much more than all the greatest art they have. I did love Matisse, Monet, some of Picasso’s, and most of the contemporary art at the Pompidou Center. But most of the art didn’t have the deep heart and soul that my students paintings have or that come from this magical place inside that expresses who we are. This was a huge surprise. This is an important way to paint and one that anyone can do experienced or not. Everyone that has ever wanted to paint should take this workshop and get freer and more confident in their creative approach to art. I have been doing this now for over 10 years and have watched student after student find that deep place inside and unlock tallents they didn’t even know they had.

I can’t wait to share with my students my experiences and how much their art means to me. I predict that in the future there will be an acknowledgement of Intuitive Painting in the museums of the future. These are paintings that are not created to impress or sell or be anything other than the expression of the persons heart. The transformation of the person painting them.

Let me know if you want to join us in September.

Note these two changes when signing up. Costs have changed and you need to make a deposit of $50 to hold your space when you sign up. I’ve had too many people cancel at the last minute and kept someone out that couldn’t take it because the class was full. My classes are very small and limited to 8 students, so when you sign up you take one of the few spots, when you cancel it effects the whole group. So please send me a check or paypal payment to hold your space when you sign up. This deposit is non refundable. The cost for all students new and repeating is now $180. We are going to be painting on a different medium, one that will last, not curl and probably not tear when wet. It is going to be really fun. Looking forward to introducing this new form. You can also use the old style of paper if you wish.

The workshop runs Sept 19-20, Saturday and Sunday, all day from 10-5. The cost includes paints and all art materials, tea and some healthy snacks. Experienced painters and beginners all enjoy this process. It is not about better techniques of painting but more about painting from your authentic heart. All you do is show up, wear old clothes you can get paint on and bring a sack lunch, I will do the rest.

Look forward to hearing from you and painting together soon. Email me at carolyn_winkler@comcast.net to register and sign up.
