Creativity Activations

Upcoming Creativity Activations

 

One of my greatest joys in life is to help folks develop their creativity.

I especially enjoy tailor-making the ideal situations for individuals. If it is technique you wish to focus on we will hone your skills. If it is learning to access and express the images that you want to bring forth, we can do that as well. I utilize both my background in fine arts as well as my intuitive abilities to tune into you to help you develop artistically. We can work in a traditional “art school” fashion with academic assignments, or, more deeply including more of your emotional and dream states. Your choice. This is an opportunity to explore your psyche through your artwork in a way that you won’t find in other art classes.

My classes and workshops have been enthusiastically received for years at my home studio as well as retreat centers across the country. My individual mentoring program is ideal for those of you that can’t make the groups or prefer a one on one relationship. They are also useful in addition to workshops or other artistic study programs.

I offer opportunities for study either in person here at my studio or long distance. We will explore the ideal mediums, subject matter, sources of inspiration and styles of working that will best help to foster creativity in you. Our program will include many of the tools that I put to use in my workshops such as dreams, shamanic journeying, music, meditation as well as assignments created especially for you.

Jump in! I promise you it will be fun.

  • Are you ready to discover how you are a creative being even if you don’t draw, paint, write, dance or make music?
  • Are you willing to allow yourself to believe that this could be possible?
  • Are you ready to see every day as an opportunity to discover your creative faculties?
  • Are you willing to open your eyes to seeing things in a new way?
  • Are you willing to open your ears to hearing things in a different way?
  • If the answer is yes to any of the above then join me and get ready to embrace the totality and brilliance of the creative force that lies within you.

“I have never taken an art class. I have had the pleasure of being taught by Melissa long distance by way of phone sessions and I send her pictures of my art by email.  Melissa is extremely supportive, caring and attentive- and  has patiently worked with me and helped me to grow as an artist.  Because of her encouragement, I have experimented with drawing, painting and creating using mixed media, watercolor, oil, and different kinds of pencils, markers, pastels and conte crayons, and I have done landscapes, still life scenes, portraits, and collages.  Melissa has taught me to really open and my eyes and SEE shapes, lines, backgrounds, tones, and colors in different ways.  I am forever grateful for Melissa’s positive energy, practical tools, incredible intuition and awesome talent that she has generously shared with me.”  Leah Gardner    Miami FL
