Process Painting, Painting from Intuition with Deb Purdy


Process Painting, painting from intuition, with its emphasis on process, not product, is a method of self-exploration and spiritual discovery, rather than a traditional painting class.

A sense of trust and integration can be gained as unexpected images emerge.

Using paint, brush and paper, we explore our creativity without care for technique, skill or meaning.

It's an opportunity to give oneself the time and space to fully express without care or concern for opinion, judgment or fear. In a group setting, the freedom to explore and to be true to one's inner voice, to learn to trust one's own instincts is emphasized. All this happens through the power of creativity, the simple and pure act of painting, as intuition becomes your guide.

Comments, judgments or critiques are not encouraged. A mutual support is engendered. Group cohesiveness is formed, as we enter into the sacredness of the creative moment. We find that we are very similar in unique ways. There is a lot of play around the paint table, and laughter is often heard. A strong bond naturally occurs. We find a communion in the heart of the painters community.
