This workshop's start date has passed.

Workshop Details

The power inherent in painting is that it can awaken a wild vein of passion that will not go back to sleep. Using only the simple tools of brush, paper, and paint, Awakening the Creative invites you on a highly personal journey of daring and discovery, made possible through a safe environment and the support of Stewart Cubley and his experienced staff. The potential is to tap into an extraordinary resource: the vibrant, driving force of your own creative spirit.
In this workshop, everyone is a beginner. You are welcome even if you’ve never picked up a paintbrush. The goal is free expression, with the emphasis on the creative process rather than on technique or expertise. Awakening the Creative is an opportunity to embark on the greatest of all human adventures—embracing your own path and confidently following it.
Stewart is the coauthor of the acclaimed book Life, Paint and Passion: Reclaiming the Magic of Spontaneous Expression. He has traveled throughout the world for more than thirty years working with individuals and groups to access the potential within the human heart and imagination.
This workshop may be of interest to people from a wide variety of disciplines, including art, education, counseling, social change, and meditative practices. All materials are supplied.
Recommended reading: Cassou and Cubley, Life, Paint and Passion.
