Brushes and Stars

An Online Intuitive Painting and Tarot Workshop with Chris Zydel and Theresa Reed


Does this sound like you:

You are creative.

At times, you feel deeply connected to your intuition (and you’d like to experience that more). Astrology fascinates you.

Take a moment and visualize this:

  • A full day of creative play – and astrology fun.
  • Two world class instructors – both astrologers – guiding you to tap into your sixth sense, creative juices, and astrological make-up.
  • Meditation and a circle of like-minded soulful star-loving explorers…just like you.

This isn’t a fantasy. It’s the real deal – and it’s happening in 2020!

Join Chris Zydel of Creative Juices Arts and Theresa Reed,The Tarot Lady, for Brushes and Stars, a day filled with intuitive insights, deep healing, creative prompts, artistic play, and astrology.


Brushes and Stars will
return in the second half of 2021

What you can expect

We’ll start out with a sacred circle and intention setting.

From there, it’s time to learn about intuition and the three astrological points that make up YOU.

You’ll paint your interpretation of your astrological blueprint. As you allow the brush to guide you, you’ll be getting one-on-one attention from Chris and Theresa. We’ll help you go deep into the painting and your Sun, Moon, and Rising.

As you work on your painting, you’ll explore “who you are” in the stars.

How do you express your Sun?

Are you more like your Ascendant?

Or do you feel lead by the Moon?

What is your painting revealing?

Soon, you’ll uncover how the planets might influence the way you show up in the world – and we’ll talk about what this means for you as well as how to work with the energy to max out your star sign potential.

By the time we’re done, you’ll have a painting that you’ll treasure, a better understanding of your astrological makeup and a whole lot of “aha” moments.

You’ll also walk away with new friends and a copy of Astrology For Real Life – A No B.S. Guide for the Astro-Curious.

(Psst…you don’t need to know ONE thing about astrology  or painting to participate.)

If this sounds like your kind of astro-party, get your hands on a ticket before they disappear faster than a comet:

What you will need:

First of all, absolutely NO art experience, skill or training is required to take this class. Beginners are totally welcome. We will be using the creative process as a way to access and strenghten our relationship to intuition. The focus will be on the creative process and NOT the creative product. And the intention is for you to explore, experiment and have fun.
BUT… you will need some art materials to participate and a table, easel or someplace in your house where you can make art undisturbed.  Our suggestion is to do the easiest thing possible and simply use whatever you have on hand. What we recommend is a large pad of unlined paper and some type of visual art supplies. You can choose to use ANY kind of paint ( acrylic, tempera, oils, watercolors), brushes if you’re using paint, or art marker pens, oil or chalk pastels or colored pens or pencils. If you DON’T have any art supplies, or just want an excuse to buy some NEW ones, we’ve provided you with some suggestions and links, at a couple of different price points, where you can purchase the necessary creative paraphernalia. 

You will also need to provide the signs of the Sun, Moon, and Ascendant from your Natal Astrology chart. If you aren’t sure what these are just bring a copy of your chart and we will help you.

Lodging is offered for some but not all of our events depending on the type of event and venue so please check the event details for lodging options and specifics. For those events where lodging is offered there are limited lodging options so we strongly encourage you to choose something that you feel meets your needs for comfort as well as expense for the entire event as you will not be able to change your lodging during the event.

We try to make sure that all amounts for lodging, taxes, and fees are accurate when you register. However, a venue may change their prices without notice and you will be required to pay the full amount to the venue for lodging, taxes, or fees that may change after you register.


Vegetarian, dairy free, and gluten free meal options are generally available at our events upon request with at least 30 day advanced notice.

Art Supplies

Unless otherwise noted, all necessary art supplies will be provided at our live in-person events. We provide non-toxic water soluble paints and paper. The materials that we supply are chosen to enhance the intuitive process and your direct experience of creativity instead of emphasizing the outcome or product. You may bring your own additional water soluble non-toxic personal supplies such as brushes, colored pencils, or chalk pastels if you choose. However, please note that we do not allow oil paints, acrylic paints, spray paint, solvents or any toxic or permanent materials at any of our events. In addition, we do not allow loose glitter at any of our events due to the work and expense involved in clean up.

Alcohol & Drug Policy

All of our events, trainings, and workshops are intended to be healing experiences. Your successful participation in any of our events requires that you show up fully to yourself, your feelings, your creative process, your inner life and other members of the circle in a respectful and meaningful way. As a result we do not tolerate the use of alcohol or recreational drugs during the event. Our expectation is that you will not drink alcohol or use any other kind of recreational drug during the time that we are together so that we can all be focused on healing, learning and growing. If it comes to our attention that you are abusing alcohol or drugs during one of our events you will be asked to leave immediately without a refund or credit. 

Non-participants and Pets

We do not allow pets, friends, relatives, or other people to stay with you during our time together as they can be a distraction for you and other attendees that will keep you from focusing and participating fully in the event.

Health and Wellness Issues

We support and will accommodate those with special needs to the degree that we are able. However, you must fully disclose any health or mental health related issues that might interfere with your attendance or participation at any of our events. We expect that you will be able to take full responsibility for yourself and will follow any and all doctor's recommendations regarding medications, treatment plans, or other health guidance. Failure to do so in a way that puts yourself or others at risk will result in you being asked to leave the event immediately without a refund or credit. We do not provide nursing or psychiatric care services at our events. Please communicate all of your relevant health needs with us before registering.

Fragrances and Scents

Our events are not strictly fragrance free. However, for the comfort and health of ourselves and of all of our attendees, we request that you don’t wear perfumes or use other heavily scented products. If you have any concerns about scents or fragrances please contact us before registering.


By registering and attending one of our events you agree to abide by all of these policies.
