Optional extra ‘grounding’ meditation.

- ‘Paint An Apple’ – smaller bonus lesson (explore light and shadow and incorporate that into your painting)
- Magic, Vulnerability and Courage – Explore how to create a male portrait, calling upon your inner wizard (working with male archetypes)
- Layers of You – This is a paint over collage lesson in which we will explore the concepts of ‘needs’ and how they are the driving force for all of what we do. I will guide you through a self-empathy exercise which can be used to heal old pain. We will create a self-portrait through a ‘paint over collage’ method and embed our needs in the page.
- You are Wise – Working with the feminine archetype ‘The Wise Woman’, we will explore our deeper truths and knowns. We will tackle some limiting beliefs about ourselves here (like ‘I’m not good enough’) and we will call upon our inner Wise Woman to find out what is the actual truth about us. On our page we will create a character or animal in flight that ‘soars’ above our limiting beliefs in wisdom and joy.
- “If you could do anything…” what would it be? That will be the gateway into your playful self. We will explore how we play, IF we play, what we can do to create more PLAY. This exploration will inform our page which will be playful, colourful, intuitive and includes a profile portrait with a swan.
