Join me for a Deep Dive into Practice, Process and Flow-state Creativity
This is a 'no experience necessary' opportunity to explore ways to:
- Overcome creative blocks -
- Surrender self judgement -
- Fearlessly approach the blank page -
- Stay inspired and take your creative expression to new heights -
- Learn how to break down and tend to the elements so that the art just makes itself -
Join me in Portland, Oregon for 2 days of messy, RAW, self expression.
I'm so excited to call this intimate gathering of like-hearted souls
to explore creative recovery, through the process focussed approach to visual journaling.
I have secured a cosy and very cool studio in a little industrial nook in North East Portland.
You don't need to be an artist, or even 'arty' for that matter.
And RAW is definitely NOT about drawing straight lines.
In fact there's no drawing at all.
All you need is curiosity, an open mind and a sense of play.
RAW will help you dig deep and bear witness to your creative SELF.
During this 2 day workshop, you can expect to learn how to create:
Learn how to let go, get out of your own way and trust the process.
Overcome the fear of beginning and the blank page.
Discover tools and techniques to overcome any creative block or dry spell.
Learn narrative techniques to explore, tell and share your stories
with authenticity, creative freedom and courage.
Experience the creative process as a means of deep inward connection.
Learn how to hold and honour sacred space and the value of ritual
Guide you through some WRITING exercises to tap into your most inner knowings which facilitate deep self connection and expression
Teach you simple, spontaneous 'messy play' techniques in which the art makes itself.
Show you ways to build a 'stash' of RAW materials so you're always ready to dive in
Invite you into a deeper understanding of creative practice & process using inquiry, symbolism and metaphor as portals to deep self connection & expression.
Share my own process and insights on making art that is honest, open and RAW
Help you let go & hold space for your own process and vulnerability.
Gently explore your inner landscape
Discover what it means for you to show up for and as yourself
Experience a creative recovery of your own truth, wisdom and insight
Gather & witness together
Laugh (tears are ok too)
Have fun and share ourselves in the spirit of creative recovery
