Art Classes – Free Your Soul!
Next Class October 30th:
Create a Celtic New Year’s Intention-Setting Talisman
The day before Halloween, or Samhain, is known as the Celtic New Year. I thought it would be fun to clarify what we want to attract or manifest for the year ahead and then create a magical art piece to bring our intentions into the physical world.
We will travel on an inner journey to meet a spirit guide or inner child and ask for insight about our next step, along with a symbol to represent it. From there we will use art materials to create a charm or talisman to take home.
Even if you don’t think you can paint or draw, your inner child still remembers how. We will be getting in touch with our inner creative genius, our inner child or a spirit guide, letting go of adult, left-brain ideas about what art and creativity should be. Then we will take the first creative impulse that pops into our heads and run with it, no matter how unconventional it may seem, just like we did as children.
Working this way, “coloring outside the lines,” is emotionally healing, relaxing, and supportive, and who knows, maybe you will discover creative abilities you never knew you had.
If you are an experienced painter, you will love this opportunity to throw out all the rules and let yourself play. You might even develop a whole new style!
I am also happy to give supportive feedback or instruction if you want it.

The Magic of Art
Awakening to Freedom Art Classes are all about the magic of self expression and self discovery. Magic is anything that intentionally shifts your consciousness. When you paint or create with intention and allow yourself to freely explore the colorful impulses of your soul, you enter the realm of magic. You heal and grow in surprising ways, because you are trusting and following your deepest inner impulses.
I’ve been an artist all my life. I love sharing the artistic process with other people. Whether you are a beginner or a professional, this class will bring a spark of magic to your life. We can all learn something from each other and support each other through the group creative process.
Maybe you think you “can’t paint or draw,” but I know you can.
Every child is an artist, and we were all children once. Your inner child is still alive and longing to create.
Before we were influenced by parents, teachers, and other well-meaning critics we all knew how to pick up a crayon or paintbrush and express ourselves. I love watching my four-year-old grandson drawing people with arms sticking out of their heads, and cats with eyes as big as their faces. His drawings are beautiful in their simplicity and freedom.
You can create with freedom too, whether you are a professional artist or “just a beginner.” All you need is a safe, supportive environment, a little encouragement, and a few art supplies. That’s what Awakening to Freedom Art Classes provide. I will also give you pointers if you want to refine your work in a particular way.
Art can be as easy as splashing colors on your paper or canvas. There is a whole science of color therapy, but you don’t need to understand it logically. The colors your intuition chooses are the ones you need for healing and growth in the moment. Trust it!
