Join us for this powerful weekend of INTUITIVE PAINTING and exploring our inner worlds.  This weekend is not about better techniques of painting but finding out what is inside. We learn to paint from those buried places that when discovered add strength and wisdom to our life. This is what INTUITIVE PAINTING is all about. You learn to let go, let come and tell your critic “Thank your for trying to protect me, but this time I want to try something new.”

 

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.

NO PREVIOUS ART EXPERIENCE REQUIRED. If you can hold a paintbrush you have everything you need. All you do is wear old clothes you can get paint on and bring a sac lunch, the paint will do the rest. This is the perfect weekend for anyone that doesn’t think they are creative.

To register email me at carolyn_winkler@comcast.net and I will tell you how to sign up.

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.

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.

Just finished my 2010 Summer Intuitive Painting Workshop and amazing paintings and painters emerged. Above is my painting from the weekend and I call it “Guardians of the Psyche.” Just reinforces my love for this process and how much it can change lives in two short days. So if you are looking for a great, fun way to be in touch with your creative authentic self mark your calendars and sign up now for the Fall 2010 INTUITIVE PAINTING WEEKEND. Come explore with me and a small group of kindred spirits as we take a journey into our authentic selves just by playing with paint.

Anyone can do this no previous art experience required. We all have creative spirits that want to emerge and they have healing powers we all can use. This is a painting weekend for your soul and will have deep personal meaning just for you. There is something very special about doing this in a group and witnessing others as they take their journeys sharing what they learn. You really do get a clearer sense of how important is to be authentic as you live your life.

What a former student had to say about the weekend:
Carolyn, thank you, thank you, thank you! I had such an expanding, opening experience in the painting weekend. I truly believe those two days painting in your studio have changed my life! I love looking at my paintings, and at the fun and wonderful photos you and Pamela sent. I just looked at my bicycle painting again, and it just makes me smile every time I see it!
Deborah LMT, Acupuncturists

Each workshop is a little different because I am different and this time I will teach you a few painting techniques I have picked up along the way. This will help you coax out an image from the mystery of the paint and give you more ways to explore and see what wants to emerge. You will be amazed at the paintings that come and how much fun you have making them. They come from our deepest parts and always touch our heart.
