“Painting the Magic of Nature”
Improve Your Painting – Overcome blocks – March 9 – May 4, 2021
An 8 week Online Art Course
You may go at your own pace. We will have zoom check ins along the way.
You will be inspired by specific emails on our topic, guided visualizations and personal preferences for the content of your artworks. You may choose to work from your imagination or from photos or life. I will provide you with some suggested photos. There is flexibility within the course to allow for your own personal needs.
You may use any medium you like since the basic principles of composition, subject matter and getting movement into a painting are the same. The demo videos will be mostly in watercolor, possibly a couple in acrylic.

DATES FOR ZOOM CALLS
Art is a spiritual inner journey for me and your e-course is a perfect fit for encouragement to go within, The sacred circle reminds us of our sense of oneness, love and support for each other as women on a path to fuller expression. In your instruction, you come from a place of great respect and love for each opening flower and freely give of your spiritual midwifery. Others may talk of technique but without the spiritual connection there is not the vibrancy and inner stirring to join in the dance. You are certainly qualified to teach us all aspects of technique but go beyond that to light our inner flame. Yes, we are women on fire!! – Ruth C – Gloucester, MA
Creative expression (painting, creative journaling) AND meditation “saved” me by igniting passion and helping me let go of a job that was suffocating me. Working through fear and insecurities, I am now intentionally giving attention to things that bring me joy.. Those in this online circle inspire and motivate me daily.” Melissa – your invitations / assignments are fabulous – always “stretch” us to process or express something we may or may not have in a different way! Thank you! – Kate B Richmond, VA
I have never been a part of a group like this before. It is very special, sharing life, loves, and art with all of you. I have loved the friendships, support, and learning experiences with like-minded creative souls. I truly care about these women, and appreciate their opening up and sharing life experiences through the venue of this group. It has been better than I ever could have expected. It is become a sacred, special part of my life. – Sallie W – Tallahassee, F
