OUR WORKSHOPS

Workshop overview

Paint Your Essence

It is all about YOU and creating your inner landscape. Your landscape is the fertile ground to discover YOU and to create change. Color, imagery, and symbolism will be your guides in this expressive painting workshop. This workshop is an opportunity for you to connect to YOU – your Expression. How does it get any better than that?

With different themes every month, we use art to learn about ourselves in a fun, playful way. Welcome.

PLAYING BIG TO INCREASE INNER HAPPINESS

Paint Your Essence 2022 Theme

This year’s theme is PLAYING BIG TO INCREASE INNER HAPPINESS.

Now that you’re finally at the point where life is starting to make sense, what does inner happiness look like?

What we need now more than ever are happy people with good lives. Imagine living in a world full of compassionate leaders who inspire us through their words and actions every day–a place without any stress or anxiety because everything has been figured out by someone else already-however imperfectly they may be doing so 🙂

First of all, it’s essential to understand that the feeling or state we call “happiness” is actually an emotion. It has several different names such as joy and bliss but what they all mean basically just means you experiencing positive emotions which can be caused by something good happening in real winning at sports, etcetera!

Achieving inner happiness doesn’t happen overnight. It is hard for people looking externally because there might not even come any realizations about how excellent being content feels until you start paying attention more than anything else–and then suddenly, one day, everything will change; Your whole perspective changes!

Join us a year filled with Inner Happiness, Paint Your Essence Workshops!

OCTOBER

FREE TO EXPAND YOUR HAPPINESS, A Paint Your Essence Workshop

This workshop explores your personal philosophy’s meaning and how it can impact your inner happiness. We’ll dive deep into what happiness means to you and how you can use it to serve you or hold you back. This will be different because I want us to look at our philosophy of happiness, not in specific areas of wealth, friends, religion, etc. Still, the possibility, desirability, and justifiability of happiness will be explored from a brief historical overview.

You can start by painting with us in October!
