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 GIVE YOU FEATHERS

This was a big travel year for me, Hawaii and Japan in Spring and Barcelona this Summer. I’m finely back and I learned a lot I want to share with you. Hawaii taught me to connect with the loha (spirit) of the brushes and paint. Japan taught me to breath and appreciate the beauty of nature and the art “WE” create. Barcelona taught me how important “FREEDOM” is to creativity and without it how we hold back. The focus of this Octobers Intuitive Painting Weekend is “FREEDOM and LETTING GO.” To let the images and messages freely come and possibly change our life. All we need to do is get out of the way and let the paint flow.

“FREEDOM” is our call and our call will be answered.

So if you feel like painting as much as I do join me and a small band of painters. Leaving all our cares behind, being in the moment and sharing our hearts. If this appeals to you just let me know and I’ll add you to the list. Can’t wait to paint with you.

The cost is $180 for the 2 days of painting if it’s your first time and $120 if you have taken it before and want to repeat. The workshop runs October 4-5, Saturday and Sunday, all day from 10-5. The cost includes all paints and art materials, tea and some healthy snacks.

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.

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.
