Emerge:  An Intuitive Painting Play-Shop in Santa Fe
to wake up the favorite parts of yourself.

  So often we think we need to be serious to be profound. It’s amazing what can show up if we let it in a place of lighthearted exploration.

This is a unique opportunity to let yourself come out of perfectionism and into simply being yourself with a paintbrush in your hand.   As you paint without technical instruction, you will discover your own “way” of painting and emerging.

You will have ample time to paint and reflect each session on your own.

You pay up front registration fee of $225—you come to as many sessions as you like, with or without coaching time. Limited to group size of 8. 

In the mood of play, we will explore:
Primary colors and the joy of simplicity
Intuitive self portraits
Expressing your animal body
The emotions of coming out of hiding

In the mood of play, we will experiment with:
A variety of brushes, and the invitation to layer paint in any way imaginable.
Palette knives and drawing tools.
Inviting in your hands, cloth and paper towels.
Charcoal, pencil, pastels too.
Black paper. White Canvas.

Due to a shift in my studio situation, I have shifted the dates for this Emerge Series…please note that it is now 3 Tuesdays all in February.  Thanks!
