There is no formula by which the impulse for change will manifest in any individual's life, but its birth is encouraged by an environment where we can let down the defenses we've erected around our own deep listening.  ~ Stewart Cubley

The Painting Experience is happy to be returning to Philadelphia this October. Join Stewart Cubley & Matt Belay for this weekend of process painting in a safe atmosphere that genuinely honors and respects individual differences without competition or comparison.

The opportunity that process painting offers is to fully inhabit our experience right now just as it is. It's a practice, as valid as any spiritual path, that requires us to drop the insane rush toward the imagined goal and to experience being at home with ourselves. ~ Stewart Cubley

Tuition: $485 ~ Your tuition includes all art materials, over 14 hours of facilitated painting sessions, group discussion circles in supportive community, a video presentation about creativity and the practice of art as process. You may notice that we’ve increased our prices slightly (by just under 8%). It’s our first increase in over 15 years and it will help us meet the growing costs of travel, space rental, and materials so we can continue to serve you. Scholarships and work exchanges are available. Thank you for your understanding!
