INTEGRATIVE PAINTING WORKSHOPS
Things you want to know before coming to your chosen workshop
A personal note from Marie
Often people are reluctant to explore their creative side through art because of the preconceived notion
that formal training is necessary.
Through my own explorations I have discovered the rewarding powers of creativity revealing the existence of a mighty world living inside all of us. Our inner world is very powerful, even more so when it is
actualized onto canvas because it then becomes a fascinating roadmap to our soul.
My passion is now to share this process with others so they can also discover what lies within
while having a good time. Inside the relaxed and colorful atmosphere of my studio,
I created a safe and sacred space conducive to relaxing and opening up.
Through a specific choice of music, a series of meditations and a breathing exercise,
I invite participants to embark on a fun and creative journey with me where
they will be able to release stress, inhibitions and cast off preconceived notions.
The power of intentions carries powerful creative energies.
It then guides subconsciously the intuitive and personal choice of shapes and colors during the painting process,
which in turn translates the inner voice of the individual by carrying it out
into the outside world through the painting.
It reflects the truth in the present moment and is a gift for us to witness, explore and acknowledge.
After having been able to let their emotions and intuition express themselves freely onto the canvas, and afterwards understanding the intimate and direct connection between the painting and themselves,
the participants will often come out of the experience feeling empowered and refreshed
with a new level of self-awareness and confidence.
What can I expect from the workshop?
Through a series of guided meditations and breathing exercises, you will be lead to reach a state of surrender.
Once prepared you will be ready to paint from your heart and soul - and not your mind.
Later, we will reflect on the paintings and interpret their deeper meanings...
