The Painting with Energies class is part of the Translating the Language of Energy series of classes. It is designed for you to leave with a finished painting that you can hang on a wall, and to inspire you to continue playing with your creativity to produce more wonderful paintings. We would love to create a space for other budding energy-artists to come and play.

Would your body and being like to come and play with paints and energies and co-create beautiful paintings? What fun could we have together?
The Painting with Energies Class is for anyone who is interested in exploring how to represent subtle energies with acrylic paints. There is no secret or set formula: the greatest learning is in doing, and the enjoyment, pleasure and fun that is possible all serve to create a day of expanding awareness, skill and artistry. Did you know you could paint? What’s possible now?
Part of the magic of the energy paintings is that they just seem to arise from awareness into image and then form. As part of the class, we will practice creating the painting as energy first, and then begin to ‘translate’ the energy into a visual, textural image on paper. We will play with preparatory sketches and notes of the colours, positions, crystals or other components of the painting, to get an overview of how the painting might look when completed. Finally, we’ll transfer all of that onto the canvas and create magic with the paints.
With these kinds of paintings, it’s also worth bearing in mind that the completed article is often different and often better than what we might initially conceive. It is as if there is an intelligence that contributes to guide and enhance what is happening with the paint, and that aspect of the process is impossible to define. It just is.
Come and delight in creativity, play, perception and joy. What can these magical beings bring to your body and being in co-creation?
Please bring your own lunch. Other refreshments will be provided throughout the day.
