About the Event
Paint Your Dreams into Reality
A creativity booster to break out of any life or career rut and into action!
Paint Your Dreams Into Reality is a creative journey that's jam packed with fun art experiences that prompts your imagination to create, heal, build, inspire and launch your bright idea into the world.
Designed specifically for busy adults who tend to live by everyone’s else’s schedules, who've lost touch with what truly fulfills them and continually put aside their own dreams.
Our focus is on you, your dreams and goals. Each month is a new theme, each building upon the last – like Crafting your Big Vision, Digging For Your Why, Befriending Your Inner Critics and Positive Mindset Workouts with a different art project that compliments the theme.
We indulge our creativity by trying out new materials like watercolor, linoleum block printing, mixed media collage and acrylics while learning basic techniques. You will learn to trust your intuition and find deep messages in your work that lead to major a-ha moments and breakthroughs.
Walk away from each session feeling energized, inspired, with a plan knowing exactly what to do next and a gallery of visual touchstones to take home with you to keep you inspired along the way!
Built for all levels. Materials included. You're encouraged to take it as a whole program, but classes may be taken individually, too!
Craft Your Big Vision: Mixed Media Collage: Without a Big Vision for your life, career and/or business, you’re walking around blind! Together, we build an inspiring and solid Big Vision so you know where you’re going, making it easier to identify opportunities as they arise – ones that you wouldn’t have noticed otherwise and you’re able to take immediate action! With clarity you become more decisive and able to toss out what doesn’t align with your Big Vision. Once there’s clarity, you want to tell others about it, which is the first step towards making it real!
Creative Project: Mixed Media Collaging –You will learn how to lay out a mixed media art piece, step-by-step and item-by-item. You’ll learn about common materials and how each media within the piece works and interacts with the others.
Digging For The Heart of Your Why: Block Prints & Ink:Let’s face it, chasing our ideas and dreams isn’t always peaches and cream. Knowing your “Why” motivates and gives you purpose, you become more decisive and it can get you through times of doubt. Learn how to tap into the feeling of what it’s like to be living your ideal life and go to this place anytime the journey doesn’t feel so sweet.
Creative Project: Our materials are linoleum and ink. We will take the inspiration of your WHY and craft an image that represents the feeling of it. Could it be something in nature? Or an animal? Or even a symbol? You will create several prints of your WHY to share with the world (if you desire) t and find ways to incorporate this expression and freedom into our linoleum block prints!
Befriending Your Inner Critics: Paper Puppets using Mixed Media: Typically when we are stepping into new territory, like interviewing for a dream job, starting a new business or project, giving a speech, our Inner Critics start perking up, it might feel like anxiety, doubts and fears. I’ll show you how to identify, befriend and transform your Inner Critics into your ally so they’re working with you instead of against you.
Creative Project: Paper Puppets using mixed media.
Getting in tune with your Inner Critic can be healing. We explore this versatile playful tool that can invite and delight your heroic, creative self to explore and discover the inner and outer parts of you. We will create your own Paper Puppet to get know them more intimately, find out what they stand for and befriend them as we’re in the process of building our dreams.
Positive Mindset Workouts:Watercolors and Ink:Learn different tools to get you into a positive state of mind. We explore different creative modalities such as how to craft powerful affirmations, connecting to your most Powerful Self, explore daily rituals that will inspire you, how to choose empowering music to bring you into higher states and how physical movement can move negative/stuck energy through our bodies.
Creative Project: We want this to be a fluid, easy going experience while you’re learning methods to transform negative energy as it arises. We will be exploring watercolor and ink on paper to capture this loose energy while learning about color, papers, brushes, drawing and composition that will set you up beautifully to create your own special work of art.
Supplies included in tuition.
