Soul Painting Workshop: Spring 2018 – Sold Out


I will be adding a depth to my teaching not shared before… This workshop is good for both beginners or intermediate skill level. A guest teacher will also make a visit and guide us on a mini-class.

Explore painting and mixed media in an intuitive and intentional style that is healing, joyful, and freeing for yourself in this sweet weekend workshop!

Come gather on my land and paint in my studio to experience the sweetness of early Spring in Appalachia and in the magic of Asheville! The workshop will take place the weekend of March 31 + April 1, 2018. Come a day early or stay later and soak it all in. Ooooh this is truly my favorite way to gather and share with you!

*Catered lunch included on both days, along with refreshments, wine, tea, snacks and magic making gifts*

Come stay in magical and alive Asheville, NC in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mtns and enjoy an enriching weekend workshop with Alena! Our mini-painting retreat will take place at Alena’s homestead, working studio, and piece of land heaven. Last retreat we had an incredible time and many of the ladies stayed hours late applying gold and silver temporary tattoos and drinking wine/tea! We will paint outside, circle, do ritual, and work in my workshop/studio space. The estate is 20 minutes from downtown Asheville. If there is time, the group will make a trip downtown to shop and take in art/sights.

The workshop will take commence Saturday morning – Sunday in the late afternoon. You will want to secure your own lodging based on your budget needs and desires! Asheville boasts a variety of hotels, BnB’s (some in historic Montford, which is walking distance to downtown), or you could also go the AirBnB or VRBO or hostel route. (Alena can always help you decide if you wish to contact her). For dinner (as an option), you can go out to eat at the delicious and varied restaurants in town! The downtown area absolutely comes alive in the evening on the weekends – with artists, buskers, and street performers! It truly is such pure delight to live in this fine city (named Happiest City in America and top place to visit in USA by Frommers and Good Morning America). Expect the unexpected and allow surprise and fascination to occur for yourself for this long weekend! It’s going to be so such a delight. (Please note: lodging and all meals besides lunch not included in workshop fee).

About the workshop:

In this mini-retreat I will be teaching in a new way not yet fully shared before! . Through guided exercises and visual examples, you will choose a symbolic symbol of animal totem, flower(s), or tree to represent your intention and heart’s desire. You will be able to draw and paint your subject matter along with painting with a variety of media. You will create a consistent series. There is much power and healing that comes from painting in this way, which can serve as a potent and loving symbol and reminder for your life that emanates truth and purity. All materials will be included for a small fee, except surfaces to paint on (you will bring those based on Alena’s suggestions). We will be working on both easels and doing some table work. At the end of the experience, you will walk away with one to two treasured paintings that not only have personal meaning, but are full of technique-based learning along with tapping into your intuition and soul-guides. This workshop is amazing for building depth to your portfolio, while increasing your knowledge on how to make gorgeous work. Alena will be sharing a lot of her tips and secrets with you, all the while going deep into our sweet soul work.

A few more details:

If you are flying, you will want to fly into either the Asheville Regional Airport (AVL), or Charlotte, NC (CLT) which is 2 hours away, or Greenville, SC (GSP) which is an hour and 20 minutes away. Please choose lodging in the Asheville or Fairview, NC area, which is very easy to get around.

** If you wish to add a completely personalized mentorship for you based on your needs, desires, dreams and goals during or after the weekend with me, this can be added on for an extra fee. These goals can be based on spiritual, creative, or career growth– or a combination thereof. Think of it as me guiding you to work with your creative and inner heart’s dreams to manifest and be fulfilled. Simply email me after you have registered to set this up. Thank you!
