PAINTING ON THE HEART SIDE OF THE BRAIN

A Course in Transformation Through Art

A Course in Transformation Through Art

Transform your life.
Celebrate your creative genius and ground yourself in your heart.

Experience profound joy through the special tactile sensations that only come from creating with your hands.

AS A CULTURE TODAY, WE ARE MORE DISCONNECTED THAN EVER

Most days we stare at screens and listen to voicemail. These activities, or lack thereof, create an imbalance both physically and spiritually. We miss out on the joys of the tactile experiences of creation; the joys we felt as children playing in the mud, jumping in puddles, or playing dress-up.

In spite of being more electronically connected than ever before, current drug use (pharmaceutical and self-prescribed) in the US seems to indicate that something is missing and that we are indeed disconnected from a very important part of Life and Joy- the creative process.

Turn off. Tune in. Turn up your innate creative talents.

Receive 6 complete classes that will tune you in and turn on your joy, give you feedback and let you work through things at your own pace all the while connecting to a wonderful creative and accepting group of people just like yourself.

 

THE BENEFITS OF CREATING ART ARE REAL

Scientists have been studying the effects of viewing or creating art for decades and they have determined that when we turn our attention to the creative process, that shift in focus takes us into positive directions rather than giving power to disease and depression.

According to research published in Art Therapy, Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, 45 minutes of creative activity significantly lessens cortisol levels in the body; the hormone directly linked to stress. This benefit was achieved regardless of artistic experience or talent.

Other studies conducted at UC Berkeley have determined that viewing art lowers the levels of certain chemicals, particularly those chemicals that cause inflammation and have been shown to eventually lead to diabetes, heart attacks and other illnesses. These studies show the physical benefits of art.

Although all art is beneficial, not all art experiences are created the same.

DON'T ACCEPT A LIFE WHERE ALL YOU CAN DO IS COLOR WITHIN THE LINES

Don't get me wrong. There is nothing wrong with adult coloring books, but those books ask you to color within the lines. When we pick up a drawing someone else has created, we limit ourselves within the experience already laid out for us. These books set us up for a limited range of ways to express ourselves.

This is NOT a series of paint by numbers classes. Instead, I am committed to supporting and guiding you in trusting your own innate creativity.

ART TRANSFORMS REGARDLESS OF HOW GOOD
(OR NOT) THE FINAL PRODUCT IS

This is a program that will help you to tap into your innate creativity; the creativity EVERYONE is born with. The intuitive art process is what we are working with. We are not expecting or setting standards that the result must look like reality.

I teach a completely non-threatening process. No specific end result is expected. Our objective is to stay in a place of creative discovery and non-judgement.

This course focuses on how we can create from joy and from pure creativity rather than putting pressure on ourselves for creating "beautiful," finished products.

This is not to say that I don't want you to like what you create, but if you don't like something that you paint, no problem. Not only will we be working to silence that pesky and over-active inner critic, we will also learn ways to move on and even go on to "fix" what we don’ t like.

Creating art allows for the uniqueness of non-perfection and strengthens both self-acceptance and acceptance of fellow human beings. For many of us trusting our intuition does not come naturally and so learning to listen to our intuition through creative play can be spiritually transformative.

THE CREATIVE PROCESS IN MY LIFE

I have been very lucky to harness the healing powers of the creative process over and over as I have gone through the ups and downs of Life. Creativity and Art have seen me safely through emigration and adjustments from one culture to another, economic turmoil, and heartbreaks.

But not only that, Art has let me express the JOY of being alive, of seeing a hummingbird hover, and the sun shining through the leaves. Seeing through the eyes of Art, the interplay of colors, shape, and texture never cease to thrill me as it deepens the richness of being alive here on Earth.

In my own experience, creating art, or just ‘ playing with paint’ releases stress and heals the soul for anyone who gives it a try. If you like many others realize that being a Human is so much more than just going to work and paying the bills this is a course for you.

 

USE ART TO CONNECT TO YOUR INTUITIVE GUIDANCE

I have designed this series of classes for you to reconnect with your love of life and inner joy using art to drop from the head to the heart. The art and body connectivity techniques I share have helped me and countless others connect to a deep state of Joy and Beingness.

This Beingness is direct experience of spirit and as such turns out to be very similar to the shamanic journeying experience. This is why I decided to include Shamanic Journeying as part of this transformational Art Course.

I will teach you not only painting and drawing techniques but whole life living using body connectivity, meditation, grounding, focusing, and shamanic journeying.

In these classes, I teach that:

  1. Art can drop us from the head to the heart like nothing else.
  2. When we use our hands to create, we open our heart chakra.
  3. An open heart chakra will help you connect to guidance intuitively.
  4. Creating art can connect us to the creative force of the universe.
  5. Creating art is opening up to the uniqueness of you as an individual.
  6. Becoming more of YOU is a most important contribution to the world.
  7. How to celebrate all the tours and detours of the creative process.

I share basic artistic understanding of color, texture, composition, light, and shadow. I will show you how to apply artistic principles to the canvas and our daily life.

This course will show you how to connect through your body and your heart to feel for truth and to access guidance. It will help you anchor your Spirituality in 3-D reality.

LET'S BRING YOUR IMAGINATION BACK INTO FOCUS

I have been an artist all my life – it’s an affliction I am born with, I jokingly tell people.

I am an artist who teaches as well as one who creates. I have made a living as an artist, painting murals, portraits, and commissioned pieces.

I am capable of doing other things but always realize that life is so much richer when I create–and especially paint. I have taught people painting one-on-one, and I have been a classroom instructor.

Through my own experience, I know art holds a magic pathway for us to find and become our own full and complete person. Art is a “live wire” to our deepest selves- both looking at art and creating art can get us in touch with our inner spirit; a spirit that is rich in thoughts, feelings, dreams; a spirit that is completely original and full of juice and power.

This series of classes will help you get in tune with your inner creative spirit. My goal is to teach you how to use art for transformation and use it to bring you in tune with your intuition, other realms, and your spirit guides. Through Art, you can connect to yourself, to your soul and to your higher self.

SOME EXAMPLES OF MY INTUITIVE PAINTINGS

The techniques I teach you and that we practice in these classes are the same techniques I use to create my intuitive paintings, some of which you see below.

WHAT MY STUDENTS SAY

This class was really fun and interesting. Susanne, you are an amazing artist and a wonderful teacher.

I felt like even though I had no experience, I could start to create something outside of my comfort zone.

Donna D.

Archivist

When you started the technique, I found that I got out of my own way. The colors and the forms came to me without thinking too hard. It was an exciting and thought-provoking practice. I was so immersed in the activity that I forgot that I was sitting in a room where I was cold.

Anita B.

Home Healthcare

I shared the technique you taught me with my stepson who has always been very private with his emotional life and often says- “I don’t want to talk about it”. Now he uses the technique when his emotions are too big for him and he doesn’t have the words to let them out. Thank you.
