Painting into the New Year
Release the Old, Invoke the New
(Two unique experiences in two different locations)

January 7th  2017 in Santa Fe NM

This year’s Santa Fe January workshop will be a one day experience. Easy to schedule–and easy to combine with my other offerings!

  Start your near year off right, in this one day playshop experience, exploring your life and connection to color, paint and being uniquely you. In a world of experts and full schedules, what might it be like to schedule in this time for sacred space, connecting with freedom and creativity with likeminded others!

Beginners welcome here.  We will all be beginners in spirit, inviting in our aliveness , our joy, our spontaneity,  giving voice to our deepest passions and instincts.  It’s amazing what shows up in paint!

No need to worry about getting stuck or baffled, Julie is a highly trained creativity coach, on board to help you find your way through this creative time.10am-5pm

$150 includes digital photos,  tax and all materials


January 21st and 22nd, 2017  in El Rito NM

This El Rito workshop is an annual event that I think of as tribal, something you may want to schedule in as an annual retreat for yourself.  Many people do return year after year.  It is a full two day experience–with more time to allow for that which is ready to emerge.

 Registration includes all materials, tax and digital photos:   $260.93 (245 + tax).


Why take an intuitive painting workshop or retreat?

To rediscover your juicy side, giving your left brain a day (or four)  off.
To experience painting from a place of freedom and openness rather than criticism and shut down
To receive guidance by a creativity coach–trained in the loving art of helping you open and take the next step.
To experience intuitive painting in a small group and  sacred space with inspired music, poetry and soulful conversation.
To jump start your art making or discover your inner artist.
To allow yourself time and space to be inspired .


no workshops planned for December 2016
