Beginner artists are blessed with "beginner's mind" and have great enthusiasm for learning.
As a beginner artist, you will need extra support around resistance that manifests as self-criticism and fear.
I don't just teach you technical skills; I also teach you practices to mindfully overcome the creative blocks that inevitably come up in everyone's art practice.
You've learned the skills, and maybe you need more practice, motivation and community. Or maybe you want to shake things up or refresh your perspective by re-connecting with your source of inspiration.
You will be well-served from being in a supportive group and getting energy and ideas from other artists, and also from learning new techniques and practices that are designed to spark your creativity.
For a truly immersive experience of art and inspiration, get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Slow down, breathe deeply, and allow the beauty of nature to replenish and refresh you.
From half-day mini retreats to multi-day full retreats, these restorative and fun solo or group getaways incorporate art, writing, nature walks, yoga and meditation. Retreats are for all experience levels.
