Ways to Connect and Learn about Creativity, Painting & Jewelry Making

Connect with A Creative Community on Facebook

I created a private free Facebook group as a gathering place for those interested in discovering their creative magic. This group serves as an online classroom and idea incubator, virtual soul circle and place to share, explore & celebrate your creativity. A creative alchemist lies hidden in every one of us. The focus of the group is for those who want to discover themselves and personal power through the creative process. Through soulful expressive art making you will set intentions, tap into your intuition, use symbols to access inner wisdom, unleash your wild creativity, let go of ego, trust in your magic and transform your life. I encourage you to join us!

Take an Expressive Soul Painting Workshop

Tap into joy as we play with layers of paint and create works of art with a focus on on the journey of self-expression. We explore themes such as intuitive mark making, dreams, animal guides, color energy and more! Painting this way is a source of wisdom, self-discovery, empowerment and enlightenment. Tap into the energy you are going to paint … freedom, peace, courage, joy and much more with expressive soul painting!
