What is Intuitive Expression?
Find your own true creative voice!
Intuitive art is a spiritual, connected art process that allows the art to lead the way as images form through the layers of paint and a variety of other media. Intuitive art is a process of creating art using an inner awareness that is heart centred and does not rely on analysis or head based questions. It is a way of creating that is about connecting into your emotions and responding to what feels right. Intuition is that image of a child reaching for the red crayon rather than the blue without hesitation. There is no reason in the decision but a space inside that guides you to choose this one instead of that?
Absolutely no talent or art experience is required.
You will sample a range of mixed art media including acrylics, charcoal, colour pastels and collage. Non artists will discover the joy and many benefits of intuitive expression.
You will be guided through a range of different processes, which will encourage childlike spontaneous expression, using your own original artistic voices.
