This group is for anyone who wants to deepen or reclaim their creativity to use in their life, their work, and their own forms of expression - whether you consider yourself an artist or not. 

We provide inexpensive materials and group instruction and facilitation to support the focus on the creative process. 

Participants are encouraged to let go of outcome and paint from an intuitive place. 

We welcome images as they occur - even ill-formed, primitive, ugly, and unpleasant images that may emerge.

Goals may include 

The facilitator will help participants in working with the painting process, including understanding the less welcome parts of us, such as our inner critic, our fears about being seen and being good-enough, our concerns about death, and the darker more malevolent aspects of ourselves. They all have something to teach us. 

No previous experience is necessary. 

Call for our next session. Groups offered are that are open to all as well as specific groups for special topics, such as working with low desire.
