Workshop Description:

Join Carrie Schmitt for 3 days of joyful painting and self-nourishing activities designed to ignite your creativity and rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit. 

Find your wild joy as we and enjoy the special bond of creating together. We will enjoy painting, music, movement, reflection, and togetherness that will refresh our creativity and rejuvenate our souls.

Carrie shares many painting tips and techniques, including how to…

*Infuse your unique spirit into each painting

*Develop and nurture your own signature style.

*Be inspired by other art without copying

*Allow the painting to emerge with ease

*Overcome feeling stuck

*Find design inspiration in unlikely places

*Let joy guide your creative process

Carrie’s intuitive painting process is much more than just putting paint to canvas. It is based on living an artistic lifestyle that embraces the following beliefs:

* We, in our entirety, are sacred works of art that deserve our affection and adoration.

* We are magical beings with infinite possibility to create the lives we feel called to live.

As Elizabeth Gilbert says "You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestation of your dreams."

Our time together will be honoring this truth as we tend to our mind, body and spirits to create joyful art.

We will offer an optional Wild Goddess Portrait Session and will have a photographer and videographer present at times throughout the retreat to capture magic that happens when women gather.

These creative weekends are filled with the process driven exploration of creative mediums and applications in an intimate, supportive environment, challenging students to expand their creativity through the exploration of new artistic methods and mediums.
