If you desire to infuse creative excitement back into your professional life, join us for a 2-hour painting experience where you’ll learn somatic tools to get out of your head, suspend judgement, unlock the inherent wisdom in your body, and unleash your inherent creativity in a community of like-minded people.
Through this workshop you will have the opportunity to create a few unique 18″x24″ abstract paintings on fine art paper (plus a number of smaller studies). Through somatic techniques, the practices of mindfulness and congruence, as well as technical lessons in acrylic painting, we’ll overcome any perfectionism or fear of the blank page to truly liberate your unique self-expression. No prior painting experience required. Materials provided.

Alyssa has been a fine artist and creative professional for 17 years. Her creativity suffered in the highly conceptual art school she attended and stopped painting for 7 years after completing her Bachelor of Fine Arts. She then learned some process-oriented acrylic painting techniques at an art residency in Baja Mexico in 2013 that unlocked her creative practice, and inspiration poured out of her. She has integrated this technique with her research into creative flow state and embodiment to develop this transformational workshop. These practices support her and her students to maintain a vibrant creative practice to this day.
