    “I thoroughly enjoyed this course. I am new to painting yet found Michals tutoring on use of colour and technique easy to understand. I loved the step by step videos showing alterations as well as everything finished, that gave me real confidence to try different things. The connection of the body, energy and canvas was so helpful not to mention healing as was the no pressure or rush to finish. Michal was careful for there to be no pressure of a 'finish' date which helps with any overwhelm. I thoroughly loved this course and would highly recommend it to anyone at any level.”

    “Michal's classes are always such a beautiful way to learn and experience LOTS of new artistic techniques and ideas in a deeply supportive environment. But this class... WOW... So much here on so many levels!! Mother Earth is a journey into deep loving respect of our beloved Mama Gaia with glorious paintings emerging. With each new week of new and fun ways to paint and create, embodied meditation/movement, deep listening and glorious Sisterhood, each woman is able to touch the face of the Divine Feminine in her own way and at her own pace. Gift yourself with this journey and allow your personal expression of Mother Earth to emerge!! ”

    “Mother Earth is a deep and valuable painting journey that supports each participant in the exploration of our relationship to nature itself and our own personal relationship with her. I am deeply grateful for the richness of this experience and learned so much about painting, my own natural ways of self-expression and in the process, although I have always love nature, I forged an new relationship to Mother Earth that is more nourishing, healing and deeply reverent, then I thought was possible. I highly recommend this journey. It is a gift beyond measure!”

    “I highly recommend this course for anyone wanting to continue exploring and deepening their art of allowing practice. The movement exercises add another layer of depth as we invite the wisdom of the body to join our psychic explorations. The themes we explored were deeply spiritual, which added to the contemplative nature of the art of allowing helped birth some of my favorite paintings. I wholeheartedly recommend this course to anyone who would like to renew a collaborative heart relationship with Mother Earth.”

Paint Tree People

I adore trees. I have always wished I could hear what they say
so I found a way to do that through painting and would
love to share it with you.
Janice will guide us to connect with the energy of the trees through our bodies. We will create two paintings of this subject.

Testimonials

“Body Dialogue is an intuitive and nurturing practice. In sessions with Janice, I find that she has the ability to tune in and read my body, and decode the stories I may be holding that are affecting my experience. The work of Body Dialogue can help with both strengthening and with unwinding tension patterns. Body Dialogue helps me to stand upright, to breathe, to feel full and empowered and creative , to honor my ancestors who gave me the gift of incarnation. Through Body Dialogue I can track my felt experience and be a nurturing mother to myself. I can tend the garden of my body.”

“Michal is the most dedicated teacher any aspiring artist could ever dream of, and really walked the extra mile to make sure we all got the most out of this class! I learned so much, among other things the course helped me to find my own style of painting, and I learned to be more brave and experiment and explore new techniques. Michal’s calm and relaxed style of teaching, in combination with her authentic desire to make every student feel seen and appreciated, made this class a wonderful experience for me, and I would warmly recommend Michal’s classes to everyone who wants to make a huge progress in their painting ." If possible, I would rate this class a million stars ”

    Mother Earth

    I started my formal art education at age 14 and continued in established Art Academies for fine art and art therapy.
    I exhibit in shows around the world, and teach art to children and adults.
    Art is my medicine I need to take as often as possible. It is also the medicine I have to give, by sharing my art and facilitate the space for others to try it.
    I have evolved in the last years and my paintings today come from an inner well, no planning, just opening and listening to what wants to come through me.
    It is a process of discovery in which I can find myself crying in awe. After studying art for many years it was a journey to find back my true voice, my inner vision and not just what I was told.
    I am grateful to be where I am now finding my joy in art and helping others find it.
