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.

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.

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.

This painting was done in the last workshop by someone that had never painted before. It is subtle so please click on the image to enlarge to see it. It represents the spirit world looking back to the material world.


Another painting from the last workshop representing the hidden heart we all have inside.

FINDING THE SACRED ARTIST IN YOUR HEART
What we all have to offer to the world is our uniqueness. This is what is sacred about us and something only we have. Intuitive Painting gives us the opportunity to explore deep inside and uncover what this gift is so we can live a more sacred authentic life.

This workshop is for anyone that needs to tap those deeper sacred parts, be free without pressure to perform, bypass all the critical voices and get back the joy of your creative self. Once you reconnect you will never be the same.

Perhaps you always wanted to try painting but just didn’t feel like you could this your opportunity to come and play. Through this sacred play you will discover gifts and strengths you didn’t know were there.

I hope you can join me for this powerful weekend of personal transformation, the details are below.

Absolutely anyone can do this, no previous art experience required. It is excellent for total beginners painting for the first time and the professional artists that would like to reignite their creative sparks.

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.
