Finding Your Creative Voice is a one day workshop that allows you to embrace self expression through art and connect with the soulful, intuitive part of yourself. It’s all about having fun, playing and the freedom to explore. Through easy collage, drawing, journaling and painting exercises, you will learn how to express your unique creative voice in a judgement free environment. No artistic experience necessary!

This workshop is perfect for you if:

  • You have wanted to explore art but never felt creative enough

  • You struggle to find time for artistic exploration

  • You want to take some time to play and connect to your intuition

  • You are an artist who is stuck or who wants to create from a more authentic place

In this workshop, Esther will guide you step by step through a powerful process that will help unlock your Inner Voice and bring more freedom to your everyday life! Using your sketchbook as a guide, you will begin to see your own style emerge through observing what naturally draws you to creative flow.

Remember when you were a kid and you created without judging yourself? You learned how things work through play. Throughout the day, we will practice how to get back to our child-like sense of exploration. Hereare some of the techniques we will use:

  • Collage

  • Intuitive drawing and painting (including finger paint!)

  • Journaling and free writing

  • Exploratory sketching

  • Creating a final piece from all that we’ve learned

All materials are included in the price and you will receive worksheets to take home that are filled with process and materials info.

This course is not about learning how to paint or draw in a specific way. It is about finding how YOU enjoy expressing yourself and creating from that place. Open to beginners or advanced students. Make time to connect to your soulful self and to get to know your Inner Artist, have fun and get encouragement from others who are on their own journey of self expression!
