Due to many requests I now offer workshops where you can make art with me for joyful exploration and stress relief !
Read an article published in Next Avenue about one of my workshops here.
WHY ? Making art benefits everyone!
Science shows that making art has the most beneficial effect on our brain, health and well being, regardless of skills, age or gender (Read Huffington post article here.)
WHAT ? I use my skills as a life long artist and as a life coach to guide you through fun exercises that will engage your right brain and help you shift into a happier state of being in general.
We may use pencils, crayons, felt pens, watercolors, brushes, pastels, scissors, glue, and printed photos (and even our fingers if we want to!) All materials are provided.
The goal is to quiet your inner critic and allow your creativity to emerge freely… and listen to it! Modern life strongly muffles intuitive creativity. Here it is welcome and honored.
Creative workshops for performance, team building and personal happiness…
It’s been studied and well documented by now: spending time in creative mode is the best thing we can do for our peace of mind, our health and our daily performances at work or otherwise.
By spending time in creative mode I mean carving time and focus out of our busy schedules and entering moments of creating tangible art forms, such as drawing, painting, writing, engraving, making music, or even doodling… as long as it has your entire attention, and as long as you get into it with the open mind of a 4 years old…
In January 2020 I completed a course in Art Therapy, adding yet some precious tools to my practice as a coach, and a greater level of guidance in the workshops to help you explore deeper and get all the benefits of such a playful time.
All levels of expertise are welcome. My creativity workshops are not about technique but about creating more connection to our inner bliss and less self-criticism. We turn off all judgement and dive in the intuitive, making room for ease and playfulness. Guided focused work without any other expectation than a creative exploration does wonder for anyone going in
HOW LONG ? Duration: 3 hours.
I am there to provide help, spark up your momentum and assist when required. As we move along I will invite you to go deeper or to shift your focus, and surrender more and more to the flow. We will take a 10 minutes break half-way through to stretch. You will go home with your own piece of artwork and most likely some personal insights that will stay with you. The experience will amaze you.
WHERE? Currently, small workshops are hosted at my Blissful Gallery in Stinson Beach for groups of 6 participants maximum during closed hours. The gallery is a serene, luminous and safe space that will uplift you and inspire you.
Light refreshments will be available. (See below for more options: be a host and waive your fee!)
The next coming workshops dates are available below, at the bottom of this page. You may click on a workshop and purchase your seat until the group is full.

SPECIAL NEEDS ? Private parking and handicap access ramp are available: being in a wheel chair should not stop you from joining in! Besides, if you have any specific need or different abilities regarding the act of drawing or painting itself, I invite you to call me personally to consider ways to facilitate your experience so it will be enjoyable and beneficial to you. Small group settings permit me to be very available in practical ways.

If you have a group of friends and a space available with tables and chairs and good lighting, I will come to you with art supplies to deliver a 3hrs workshop at your place (6 persons gathering, minimum).
