FeelPeaceNow collaborates at Lynn Whipple’s Big Bold Blooms Wild Painting Workshop
I am so excited and happy to announce that I am helping my dear friends Lynn & John Whipple at their upcoming Big Bold Bloom Painting Workshop, April 18-23, 2017 in New Smyrna Beach Florida. Both Lynn and John are nationally award winning artists who live in Central Florida and who teach at workshops online, around the country, and for the past two years, at multi-week sold-out art retreats in Mexico. Their workshops fill up FAST because those who have attended once often come back for more.
Lynn’s Big Bold Blooms Wild Painting has been offered online, and this is your chance to take it in person. It’s perfect for seasoned artists or a newbie, like I was at one of Lynn’s workshops 3 years ago— which incidentally, was AMAZING. I knew NOTHING about art supplies or how to make art, yet after two days I had 5 pieces of art and enough confidence to keep going. (Later that same year I had my art at the Orlando Museum of Art’s First Thursday and two independent shows within a year later! No pressure though— that is I why I am coming to help at this workshop. 🙂 )
Did you know some folks fear making art or taking a painting class? That was me, just over three years ago. Since a not-so-nice teacher had told me I was bad at art in 8th grade, I had let insecurity rob me of the joy of making art until 3 years ago when I took a class with the fabulous and talented Lynn Whipple! In her fun, interactive classes, my fears and insecurites disappeared and I began to make art. It felt amazing! This could be YOU!
Do you want to learn some easy creativy enhancements to help you overcome fears? I did! During this painting workshop, I will be leading some guided meditation most days and also some short EFT Tapping sessions to help us be open to the creative process.
EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques, also known as Tapping) is a super fast way to help remove creative blocks and to drop anxiety/stress. It’s one of the best things I teach my clients and I will be on staff to help reduce stress, and help increase positive thoughts and feelings.
Workshop Bonus: Make Artful Friends
Truly, one of the most suprising and delightful outcomes of particpiating in Lynn’s workshops has been the building of lovely and fun artful friendships! I have met people from around the world, taking Lynn’s workshops online and I have made some lasting friendships from her in-person workshops. It is a true pleasure to meet people who are interested in bringing more beauty into the world, who also have a fun sense of humor and joy in the process.
