Beyond Belief Workshop

August 9, 10, 11 • 2019  (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) 9:30 am–3:30 pm
A 3-Day Workshop • 
$330 (Includes catered lunch)

Come paint freely and intuitively – but with a plan.

Learn new ways forward on your own creative path.

 Three powerful mindsets – principles at the very foundation of creativity

♦ Seven keys for painting success – real problem solvers and breakthrough techniques

…these are the basis of the June Beyond Belief workshop. Dissolve barriers to free expression. Enjoy the collective spirit of like-minded creatives. In this workshop we’ll explore the deliberate, intentional pursuit of the non-physical in the creative process. We’ll focus on that place where the worldly acts of painting meet the purely energetic, the spiritual, even.

Art is ‘beyond’ – that is why we make art and why we look at it. Art moves us. But exactly what is going on here? It has to do in part with the ‘belief’ system of the artist – and the viewer.

We’ll study through readings 

from the likes of Thich Nhat Hanh, Wayne Dyer, Albert Einstein, Rumi, Robert Pirsig and more. This is a workshop aimed at the center which is not in the middle. The light which casts no shadow. Are you ready?

We’re expressing freely and intuitively in paint but we also follow principles of good design, attention to shapes, edges, values, color, line, pattern and all the other tenets of success in painting. Inspired work happens within form. You will learn, or revisit, painting strategies, techniques and practices for success. Painting demonstrations will pave the way.

Appropriate for those at all levels of experience.

Sign up with a friend!

Three days, 9:30 am to 3:30 pm, with a nutritious, creative mid-day break.

When you sign up you’ll receive a suggested materials list.

By design, this is a small workshop experience.

The workshop takes place in my own studio space, a light bright house in Encinitas Highlands within eyeshot of the inspiring Pacific ocean. Coast Highway 101 and beaches are blocks away for a stroll at the end of the day if you choose.

The mid-day meal each day will be catered (organic vegetarian) so that our creative involvement can be as continuous as possible.

Your payment reserves your space in the workshop. Reservations are transferrable. Cancellations less than 3 weeks before the start of the workshop are not refundable. Please be on time, committed and ready for a wonderful creative experience.
