Wild Heart Painting Live Online with Chris Zydel
One of my favorite things EVER is hosting my weekly Wild Heart Painting classes in my Creative Juices Arts Studio in Oakland, CA.
But not everyone is able to come and work with me in person, so I’m thrilled to be able to offer this exciting new opportunity to dive into the intuitive painting process in virtual community.
I LOVE the depth and creative healing power that happens when you paint intuitively with other folks at the same time and in the same space. But that has always required that you travel to a physical location. Which can be fun and exciting and an adventure but not always practical or doable.
But now, with the internet and some of the cool online platforms that are available, it’s possible to create a sacred creative space that allows you to connect and create with others without having to do all that pesky travel stuff.
Imagine being able to paint from your own home or personal studio in the company of other painters while being inspired and guided by the Wild Heart Queen herself!
Which is exactly what we will be doing in these Wild Heart Painting ONLINE LIVE classes.
How It Works…
Each class will be three hours long which includes time for everyone to check in and share, receive some tips about the intuitive painting process, and participate in a meditation led by me to help get you in your body and connect more deeply with your creative source before you start painting.
Then everyone will begin to paint. I will be in the circle with you all, witnessing you as you paint and taking time to connect with each of you individually in a soul conversation about your painting process. These conversations are designed to deepen your connection to your intuitive wisdom and to keep you on track with your creative flow.
Sometimes I will be providing you guidance, other times it will be unmitigated creative support. I will be there to help you get unstuck if you’re floundering, to motivate you when you feel like you’ve hit a wall and to encourage you to step into the mystery and the unknown from a place of joy and trust.
You will also be part of a dynamic creative community circle where you are GUARANTEED to inspire each other with your boldness, your daring and your creative courage.
The purpose of the circle is to create a space where it’s safe to be brave. Where your vulnerability is treated with the greatest kindness and tenderness. Where freedom, spontaneity and untamed self expression are rejoiced in and celebrated. Where you will be encouraged to ALWAYS be yourself and held in a place of deepest honor and respect for your wonderfully unique and individual creative brilliance.
I see this Wild Hearted Intuitive painting process as a spiritual, creative and intuitive practice. And by participating in this class you will be strengthening and deepening your relationship to those practices and bringing them into your life in a more fully embodied way.

There will also be a private FaceBook group set up for anyone who participates in these Wild Heart Painting ONLINE LIVE classes so that you can connect and share with other wild hearted painters.
What You Need To Participate…
One thing you DON’T need to be part of this class is ANY experience with painting or art.
This process works if you’re a seasoned artist or if you haven’t picked up a paint brush since kindergarten.
However, you WILL need a computer or some other electronic device, a high speed internet connection, some paints, paper (or canvas) and brushes and a place in your home or studio where you can set up to paint.
Once you register for the class you will receive a letter from us with instructions on HOW to set up your studio space, where to connect with the online platform (we will be using Zoom) tips on some studio practices and recommendations for supplies. Although, you are MORE than welcome to use whatever art supplies you already have on hand.
Class size will be limited to 12 participants which means you will get PLENTY of attention and guidance from me and it will also create a cozy atmosphere of creative support with the other painters.
My vision for this class is that it will be a way for you to build a sense of creative sanctuary into your week where you can go on your own private mini- painting retreat.
I’ve set this up so that is easy, accessible and FUN!
And I’m SO looking forward to going on this soul journey with you into your own intuitive painting process.
Meet you in the virtual studio!!!
From my wild heart to yours,
