Fanning The Fire Within come join us for a fun weekend of self exploration and inspiration using paint. What better way to start the New Year off right than playing with paint and discovering from this Deeper Intuitive part of you. What ever your life needs for the coming year will be revealed.  Metaphors hold a lot of information and we will work with them and unpack them to see what it is that will fan your inner fire.  It’s always fun to do this class at the beginning of the year because of the new possibilities every New Year brings.  Just like a new dawn but bigger. So come and find the wisdom and strength within you.  Let your life and inner fire burn a little brighter this coming year.

 

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.

*Extra Days Added On.  This year I’m going to try a new experiment.  One of my students requested that she wanted to paint for longer. That she thought there was a lot more she needed to explore and that a couple more days of painting would be great.  So for those of you that want to go even deeper you can add on the extra two days for an additional  $80 per day.  The studio will be open so you can add one or two days what ever suits your needs.  Just let me know when you sign up or during the weekend if you want to take advantage of this option.

Look forward to painting with you.  Each class is a new experience.  My studio is called “Going Deep” because we let out the parts of us we buried there long ago.  I promise a powerful experience and hope you can join me.  We’re Going 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.

As one of my students said in the last workshop “I’ve taken a lot of painting workshops and this is much more than just a painting class.”  It’s very true.  This is not about better techniques of painting but better techniques of learning about yourself and from there expressing it into your paintings.  Anyone can do this beginners and professional artist alike. I helps you get unstuck.   You have everything you need and I supply the rest.  You start without a plan and have no idea what the paint will reveal but it always takes you were you need to go.  I decided to make this weekend about being OK with who we are and appreciating all we have already accomplished.  We will learn to tame our critical minds and tell them we want to try something new.

So if you ever wanted to paint and see what you can do or if you have been painting for a long time and feeling kinda stuck. this is the weekend for you.  Join us for this full 2 days of playing with paint and learning a lot about ourselves and how to grow.  Otto Sharmer from MIT says it best.  “We are always two people not just one.  The one we are in this moment and the one we are becoming.”  Let the paint help you discover deeper parts of yourself and strengths you didn’t know you had.  Can’t wait to share this process with you and seeing the paintings that want to come.

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

Every year it is always good to start with a fresh inspiration.  This weekend is all about exploring the deeper parts of ourselves and getting the wisdom they have for us for the coming year.   We will follow the paint where it wants to take us and discover strengths and insights our life could use.

I have been teaching this powerful process for over 10 years and it never ceases to amaze me the paintings that want to come.  We all have inner worlds. I teach you how to access and tap into them and discover strengths and wisdom you didn’t know you had. Then you take that wisdom and create a better life

In one short weekend of letting go and playing with paint we can change our lives.  I look forward to painting with you and sharing with you all that I know.  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. Make it a creative getaway to start the New Year off right.

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.
