The Painting Experience

Empowering people to find a more courageous and meaningful participation in their lives through process arts.

Explore the Process

Process painting is about creativity, not technique or training. There’s no critiquing, analysis, judgment or comparison with others.

See Our Programs

The Painting Experience is an opportunity to embark on the greatest of all human adventures—embracing your own path and confidently following it.

Visit Our Blog

The process painting community is for educators, counselors, artists, activists, meditators and mavericks. No prior art experience or training is necessary – only your willingness to explore.

The Painting Experience Process

Using the powerful tool of Process Arts, you’ll be given the support to:

  • Discover a creative voice that’s entirely your own
  • Trust your intuitive perception, not the mind’s critical chatter
  • Follow your energy rather than what looks good or makes sense
  • Overcome blocks by embracing their hidden message
  • Experience your imagination as intelligent – a doorway to deeper knowing
  • Explore process painting as a genuine path to spiritual awakening
