Intuitive Painting (Four-Week Series)
Thursday, May 10 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Thursday, repeating until Thursday, May 24, 2018
Intuitive painting is a form of mindfulness practice that encourages you to step beyond the world of words and intellect into the deep wisdom of your heart. Rather than being an “art class” focused on technique and product, this is an experience of welcoming anything that shows up. In this way, Intuitive Painting is an art-making class that invites you to be alive in your senses and aware of the amazing stream of emotions and thoughts that flow through you from moment to moment.
The class involves an opening discussion and meditation, followed by painting (mostly in silence) in the company of others who are sharing this journey of discovery. All agree to refrain from commenting on each other’s work, and are encouraged to trust that each of us has the full capacity to have our own deep experience without the distraction of other people’s opinions or interpretations. Slowly, we begin to recognize the voice of our own inner critic and respectfully ask it to give us space to explore. The class concludes with a time to talk about what people have experienced and make any comments that they wish to make about their own painting.
