INTUITIVE PAINTING IS A SPONTANEOUS APPROACH TO ART MAKING. IT IS ABOUT CONNECTING WITH YOUR OWN AUTHENTIC EXPRESSION AND CULTIVATING YOUR OWN CREATIVE STYLE.

INTUITIVE PAINTING WORKSHOPS – The Yoga of Art Making

 


Intuitive painting is focused on the process and allowing yourself to be guided by whatever shows up on the canvas. Spontaneous art is a fun, empowering process rich in self-discovery, as it offers insights to our inner world. Through the use of mixed media art materials, and by letting the intuition lead, we bring awareness to non-verbalized feelings and emotions that may need to come to surface and be expressed.

 

 

Workshops begin with a breathing meditation and a spontaneous creative exercise to get centered, quiet the mind and connect with your inner artist. As we explore some techniques to help you get started, inspiration may come from a colour, a word or emotion. While you relax into the process, stay present and let go of expectations of how your art "should" look; you will create your own unique, meaningful piece of Art.

Mélissa's workshop was a blast! Appreciated the free-flow style and natural flow of creativity. I felt like I connected with my inner-child...back to the young girl who simply loved to paint, without any personal judgement  or inhibition.

It's a pleasure working with Melissa. She asks questions, and takes time to get to know us, so that our canvas represents the person we are. She doesn't hesitate to show us different techniques and helps us to see past our self-imposed boundaries.

Thank you Melissa for expanding my creativity!

I reluctantly attended the workshop, as I've never painted anything unstructured before. Melissa, ever so gently, nudged me in the right direction to stay with the process, and from there it evolved into a piece of art I'm proud to put on my wall.
