The Passion of Painting: Get In, Get Out, Get On With It!

Mar 19 - 24, 2017 Begins in 2 weeks
with Erin Gafill with Tom Birmingham

How much more could you create if you weren't second-guessing yourself, or walking away from the easel too soon? During this workshop, you can learn tricks and practices to bring you back, including working in a series, setting a timer, and working with house-painting brushes and torn paper collage. Experiment and have fun with exercises that take twenty minutes or less. By utilizing short blocks of focus and surprising methods, you can awaken creative thinking and move into perceiving and expressing instead of overanalyzing.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.


A global network of seekers devoted to the belief that we are all capable of the extraordinary.
