A Wild Heart and Fearless Painting© Revolution Retreat
with Chris Zydel & Connie Solera

Chris Zydel and Connie Solera are joining creative forces to provide you with the ultimate creative liberation experience. This is the workshop where you will claim and reclaim your authentic artistic freedom. Freedom to create a ruckus, to rebel against the rules and regulations that are seriously restricting your creative soul, to protest perfectionism and joyfully disrupt those patterns of good girl art compliance that are keeping you locked in a creative box.

If you are ready for no-holds-barred creative expression and for overthrowing those creative shackles that have bound you for way too long, come and join us for four days of stirring up the best kind of creative trouble with a wild hearted bunch of fearlessly riotous creative compadres!!!

And if you want to get a taste of what it’s like to work with the two of us TOGETHER check out this video clip of the two of us in full blown creative riot gear HERE and HERE!
