About This Class

Creativity is supposed to be fun! It’s supposed to be easy! But somehow, many of us lost our way and instead it’s laced with fear and unworthiness. 

Does this sound like you?

Maybe every time you sit down to create you become overly attached to the results and feel like if you don’t make something perfect it’s not worth your time and somehow it will lower your self-worth. Or maybe you have a creative itch but feel like painting is only for artists. You’ve locked away your creative spirit, feeling as if you missed the boat because you’re too old or you don’t have any talent. Whatever your creative issues are, this class is for you. Whether you’re a professional looking to get back into the flow state or a complete beginner wanting to express yourself. 

This class is full of all kinds of fun like:

  • Boldness
  • Passion 
  • Emotional release
  • Freedom
  • Mindfulness
  • Joy
  • Color Therapy
  • Messiness
  • Experimentation
  • Non-Judgement 
  • & So Much More!! :)

Because the results that you make don’t matter, you are guaranteed to have FUN! 

I believe this class will change your creative life! I know that’s a lot to promise, but something really magical happens when you paint without caring about results. In this class I will show you how to silence your inner critic, connect to your inner child, and get into the flow state! These things are a magical recipe for more creativity and happiness in your life! 

We will not paint pretty things, in fact most of the things you’ll make, especially at the beginning will be really ugly! And that’s a good thing! We will embrace mistakes and accidents, learn how to let go, and truly express ourselves in the process. This kind of painting may seem silly, but it has boundless benefits! 

These are some of the benefits I’ve gotten:

  • I make more art!
  • I have more fun! 
  • I experiment more! 
  • I am kinder to myself when I do create a piece that is considered ugly! 
  • I have learned to silence and ignore my inner critic. Which feels like a superpower! 
  • I also get valuable practice time in. 
  • I learn new techniques
  • I practice mindfulness
  • I explore my subconscious. 
  • & Much more!

The great thing is these sessions can be done in 5 to 20 minutes! So why not incorporate something so awesome and easy into your daily routine and reap all these benefits and more? Why not let yourself express yourself completely? Try this magic out for yourself and see what it does for you! So what are you waiting for? Let’s play!

P.S. This class will focus on using watercolor, but you can use the concepts learned with any medium you prefer! ;)
