Drawing or painting faces can be intimidating! We all learned how to draw smiley faces in kindergarten, and drawing or painting faces can bring up a lot of insecurities.

In this workshop we’ll create a safe space to “face” our self-doubt, we’ll learn to see faces more clearly and nurture our painting skills in a supportive environment.

I painted my first face in the Art as a Sacred Practice class in the M.A. of Women’s Spirituality program. I was nervous but excited about the 2 day Intentional Creativity painting class. "I have never painted before!" That nagging voice of my inner critic jabbered on in the background until my teacher (Shiloh McCloud) suggested we quiet those voices down. I painted in the zone for the entire two days. At the end of the class when I looked into the eyes of my painted “dragon mother”, I felt an immediate connection:  a connection that is deep, intense, and healing. I was immediately hooked, and I’ve been painting images of the Feminine to this day.

Face to face, to see eye to eye

In order to paint faces or portraits, you have to get in close: face to face. So you can literally and figuratively see eye to eye.

You cannot paint what you can’t see! You have to see the faces clearly before you paint. For me, I always start with a basic sketch of the face and then zoom into the eyes. Yes, I make eye contact first. The saying: “You can see someone’s soul when you look into their eyes”, rings true to me. More often than not, I see something about myself reflected in her eyes, or in her face. Others have often commented how my paintings look like me or my daughters even though I wasn’t painting us. For me, painting these images of the Feminine is my practice of learning more about myself. It’s as if I’m peeling off layers after layers a painting at a time.

During the face-to-face journey, you will:

  • You’ll be guided through the foundations of composing a face
  • Learn how to mix the skin tones, the lights, and darks
  • Focus on the different facial features starting with the eyes, and finishing with the hair.
  • Learn how to correct “mistakes”.
  • Finally you’ll step back and tie everything together.

This class is designed for anyone with a desire to refine and improve on their painting techniques and also those who are a little reluctant to start creating faces.

"Being allowed the space not only to create an art piece, but also the space to deeply reflect on my own journey and the encourage to bring out my own deeper sense of self."

"Asia, you have a brilliant gift of channeling Her so that everyone is blessed with a new understanding of themselves and brought closer to heart."

"Keep these workshops going! Women need a place/places to express and get their energy flowing in the world!"

Asia was introduced to painting and Intentional Creativity when she started in the M.A. in Women’s Spirituality program. During the course of her studies, she came tête-à-tête with the transformative aspects and the healing powers of Intentional Creativity.

Her master’s thesis: A descent journey of reconciliation with the inner mother and revisualization of the Divine Feminine, showcased 13 of her paintings.I feel called to bring Intentional Creativity as  a healing and self-discovery practice to women. I firmly believe that by bringing forth our stories, we can decide to let go of any negative impact they have on our lives, allowing us to create our future stories with intention and love.
