Individual Coaching for Your At-Home Painting Practice
We are pleased to announce several programs designed to support your personal process painting practice at home. These programs are led by senior facilitators of the Painting Experience and provide you with the opportunity to grow into your capacity for living creatively and wakefully.
The Painting Experience Scholarship Fund
The Painting Experience is a 501c(3) nonprofit organization that depends on the generosity of individuals like you to fund expenses that our program fees cannot fully cover. We invite you to join us in creating a new Painting Experience Scholarship Fund to help us make our programs available to those who would not otherwise be able to participate. Contribute $75.00 or more and receive a smock embroidered with The Painting Experience logo.
A short synopsis of the principles underlying The Painting Experience.
Bring the Painting Experience to a location near you!
We're often asked to offer workshops in new cities, states, and countries. We love to check out new venues and find new places to paint; it's not unusual for us to teach in several new cities each year. But growth happens only with your help. If you're interested in bringing The Painting Experience to your home turf, here's what we'll need from you. We hope you'll find the hosting process both easy and fun . .
CE Credits for Nurses (as well as MFT/LCSW)
We are pleased to announce we have received our certificate from the Board of Registered Nursing stating that we are a Continuing Education Provider. Licensed California nurses, you will be able to receive credit for attending any of our workshops. And for years we've offered CEU credits for therapists and social workers. Please request your CE Credits when registering.

“We have to learn the knack of free association,
to let loose what is hidden in our depths,
to expand rather than to condense prematurely.
Rather than making an intellectual point
and then devising a form to express it,
we need rather to release the face that is sweating under the mask
and let it sweat out in the open,
even though nobody else gives it a prize for special beauty or significance.”
