Because I will be traveling in Japan the months of November – December and not  able to have my regular Fall Workshop I am adding an extra Summer one.   This will be the last workshop for the year so I really hope some of you can join me.   The class is small and limited to 8, please save the date and let me know right away if you can join us.  Come and celebrate the eclipse with a message from your creative spirit guides.   Portland will be a great place to see the eclipse.  There are lots of airbnb’s near my studio.  Looking forward to painting with you.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Progression 6

Join me for this life changing 6 weeks Support Group.  This is some of the most powerful work you will ever do.  Based on my training with Debbie Ford and my experience developing Affirmative Innergetics I gift to you the techniques of integrating your Shadow and how that frees up a lot of energy not available to you now.  We will dive deep in to the basement and bring up exactly what you need.  I promise this support group will change your life.  Come and learn to explore the following and integrate the strengths you discover back into your life. Here’s what we will cover each week.

Learn what exactly is the Shadow and How Does it Work?
How do you find your Shadows gift and how this helps you?
What is my Story and how does it trap me?
What would you need to be wrong about to have what you want in life?
Who do I blame for the conditions in my life?
How many years have I been using these excuses?

Class is held 6 Thursday evenings starting July 25th ending August 29th, from 7 to 9, at my studio in North Portland. Cost is $30 each meeting for a total of $180, paid at time you sign up.  Group is limited to 9 so we have plenty of time to work on personal issues.

One of the most important things you will ever do is work with your Shadows. This often misunderstood part of us is a huge key to our happiness but is seldom addressed. It is key to knowing how to handle upsets when they come along.

So bring what ever is bothering you it can be turned around to be come one of your greatest strengths. Whether it is a person that drives you crazy and you can’t stand, some awful situation that keeps happening no matter how much you try to avoid it or something that you always wanted but never seem to get. These are the problems we will work on each week.

I promise you will uncover the gifts these Shadow parts hold for you and integrate them back into your life. It is not that you will become this Shadow  you have hidden away but will be free to use it’s strengths.

To register or ask questions please email me at carolyn_winkler@comcast.net. or call 503 734-6516. I will add you to the list and let you know the rest of the materials you will need to bring. Look forward to doing this wonderful work with you and teaching you these techniques.
