Intuitive Art Workshop - Tickets
Intuitive Art Workshop
When was the last time you created art without planning, without an end goal, and just allow your emotions to come through the art?
Do you find it hard to sit with your emotions on your own?
That's what this workshop is all about.
Creating the intention to allow your emotions to have a voice, through the paintbrush or pen.
Listening to your inner guide, letting your intuition show you what it wants to express.
It's about holding space for yourself, letting go of the outcome and enjoying the process, while being supported and encouraged in a group setting (or online!)
I have been on my own healing journey over the past 6 years to heal my trauma, I have tried many different techniques to help express my own emotions, yet art is still the most healing for me. I have also learnt how powerful it can be to hold space for someone, it provides the opportunity for healing and growth collectively. I want to hold space for you, so that you can be the best version of yourself! I will be sharing techniques and tips on how to express our emotions through art. This is something that I am truly passionate about - art is my way of expressing myself, especially when I don't have the words. Art is my therapy and can be an incredibly healing tool.

TESTIMONIALS: "Melissa’s intuitive painting art workshop was an incredible experience. This inspiring space really encouraged me, both to let go and be bold, as I moved through the fear of not painting beautiful enough. It helped me welcome joyful and spontaneous expression. I learned a variety of techniques, worked with vibrant colours and tools. Kept the momentum by moving the body to music, and last but not least, connected more deeply to my feelings and left feeling inspired!" - Angela
“I attended Melissa's workshop twice, it was really interesting and I loved this new way of looking at my emotions. For a person who considers herself non-creative, I had a lot of fun and really enjoyed expressing anger through destroying and burning my painting. I highly recommend it for everyone!” - Chloe
“The intuitive workshop I attended with Mel was a lot of fun. For me painting was very frustrating and Mel was very supportive, inspiring and assisted me with bringing out my anger onto the canvas. It's a joy seeing her teach, as the love she has for art and inspiring people to bring out their inner artist really comes through her work. Since that workshop my creativity has really skyrocketed. Thank you my friend!” - Will
