What we're about

Intuitive painting, meditation, music, tea and poetry for women of all ages and no art experience necessary...

**Currently all sessions are on Zoom **

A workshop for painting intuitively in a safe, non-judgemental space. This is a also a great place to meet a community of like-hearted friends.

Discover the joys of this style of painting - expressing through a layering process, with colour, shape, line, movement and texture… trusting and being open to surprises.

Painting in this way teaches you to let go and helps develop self-trust, confidence, sensitivity and an openness to discovering what you love, your own style and creative expression.

The creative process can be one of self-care and compassion. There are no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ approaches and the goal is not to paint a ‘perfect picture’ but to create in the present, in an engaged process of discovery. You begin to trust your inner wisdom, which comes from a stillness beyond thought, busyness and changing circumstances. Painting in this way becomes such a beautiful spiritual practice.

Listening in, nurturing your inner artist and gaining confidence within your art and also in daily life. A new sense of boldness, playfulness and experimentation starts to take place as fears and apprehensions surrounding painting and ‘the blank canvas’ subside. It’s liberating! As in art… in life!

****************

We paint around a theme each week and there is a period of quiet painting, then sharing, exploring, chatting, music, oracle cards and EFT sometimes, oracle cards and whatever interests the group would like to share.

**Especially great for HSPs, Empaths, Introverts and all interested in wellbeing and spirituality **

Intuitive painting grace & joy online workshop!

Online event

£8.00

For all levels! No art-experience necessary just a willingness to be open and see what arises. Letting go of judgement, no good/bad or right/wrong... **please see the general group description 'What we're about' here on Meetup for lots more info.

Also perfect for HSPs, Empaths and Introverts x
*At the moment these workshops are for women only *

We will be painting around a loose theme which will be sent to you a few days before the workshop. This is a relaxed, friendly group and focused too in that we have a guided meditation to start and then approx 15 mins of quiet painting, which is wonderful and flows so well from the meditation.

**This works so well on Zoom, too, we can move away from the camera to paint, if preferred - I set up on my floor, I can still be seen...then back to the screen at other times. So we're painting together, apart...and then sharing together. I've found there's a lovely natural ease and flow with this. There's no necessity to be always on camera.** I've practised the workshop with my online group, with really happy and wonderful results!

Then we share ideas, chat a little, have a cup of tea... paint to music and see what unfolds. A wonderful shared experience and the time flies. We also have poetry sometimes, EFT and oracle cards, whatever is of interest to the group as a whole.

It's absolutely fine if you don't want to talk too much or want to get a feel for the group first, as an HSP introvert I totally understand!

** This workshop offers a safe, encouraging, gentle space for developing friendships, new discoveries, surprises, warmth, & new learnings and practices to explore, both in your artwork and life; focusing on self-compassion, self-acceptance and non-judgement. **

Any paints, pencils, pastels, brushes, art equipment and paper that you usually like to use is perfect. These can be cheap supplies, certainly to start with as the objective is to feel free and not 'precious' about how we paint. The bigger the better for paper, too, to be free and expressive, but if you prefer smaller that's ok too.

**Please see www.intuitivepaintinggraceandjoy.weebly.com for more info and many more photos and to get a really good idea of the group.

You can also find out more about all my other artworks, feltings, paintings, articles on www.rowenascotney.com.

The workshop lasts for two hours, 3-5pm, and these online Zoom workshops will be £8.

*Please do RSVP and I think you have to pay then too, Meet-up has changed its RSVP system... The payment is safely via Paypal. Thank you and see you there!

**If you have any questions at all, please do contact me via a message here or direct on [masked] if any questions x
