Workshops and Certification on Intuitive Stream Drawing
Workshops for children in school, library or museum settings is also available, contact me here on this site or call 203-557-3937. I will send you a specialized plan for these workshops and work with the needs of the school.
Classes for Adults
After MAKING MARKS: Discover the Art of Intuitive Drawing was published in May, so many people (life and skills coaches, teachers, intuitives, artists, writers, etc) from all around the world have asked me for guidance in learning to develop this visual-intuitive method. I am thrilled to support others on their journey using intuitive stream drawing to support others on their journey, so I have developed a unique certification program.
In NYC and CT Classes for adults are held in Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3. Participants who complete up to Level 3 are candidates for certification in the intuitive stream drawing method. To learn more about certification, see below. The Intuitive Stream Drawing Certification classes will take place at the wellness center where I practice readings and Reiki, on 5th Avenue in NYC and in my CT studio. If you’d like to register to join a small group or one-on-one certification course, email me here: firstname.lastname@example.org
Is it time to listen to that voice within? Develop your empathic sensing and intuition through discovery and experimentation! Learn to do your own readings for yourself and others.
For years I’ve given programs in schools, libraries and museums, using gesture drawing to help people develop confidence in creative expression and intuitive, empathic sensing.
Intuitive Stream Drawing: I’ll show you my technique known as “Intuitive Stream Drawing” (detailed in my new book, MAKING MARKS: Discover the Art of Intuitive Drawing / Simon and Schuster/Beyond Words) drawing in a free-style state which opens you to creative solutions and intuitive connections.
WORKSHOP: BASICS OF STREAM DRAWING
This workshop is individualized to suit the needs of the host entity (wellness center, art center, private group etc) and can be 2 hours, half day or all day. Contact me through email@example.com for more information and to set up a fun, creative and empathic workshop for you and your guests, clients or friends. These classes are currently approximately $110.00 per hour plus travel time.
STREAM DRAWING CERTIFICATION
Certification is a step-by-step process for people who would like to use the stream drawing method as a mode of encouraging intuitive, creative exploration with others. It requires a little in-depth learning because my intention for this process is to never have it be one in where anyone who draws feels they are being analyzed by another person. The point to stream drawing is YOU create your own stream drawing and YOU gaze in to it to see what YOU see. You may stream draw while thinking of another person, but again, you are drawing and you are gazing/intuiting. Stream drawing is never about looking at someone else’s drawing and telling them what you see in their drawing. That would feel oppressive and judgmental for the mark-maker and is not what stream drawing is about. So, steps are taken to develop this process.
STREAM DRAWING WORKSHOP Level 1
This is an introduction to experience drawing in a stream-of-consciousnes way. (It is a step toward certification.)
The workshop for adults and young adults, is centered on the self-discovery methods in my new book MAKING MARKS: DISCOVER THE ART OF INTUITIVE DRAWING. Participants learn to reclaim drawing as a wonderful tool for creative expression, developing intuitive, empathic sensing and visual-intuitive skills. This practice is great for generating ideas and insights, and for releasing stress. Participants draw with abandon, playfully getting into a stream-of-consciousness flow of thought and feeling. The second component to this enriching workshop is to explore artistic visual intelligence, gazing at marks made to see the way lines and shapes hold meaning, both general and personal. There is individual exploration and partners work together. To schedule a Stream Drawing workshop, just contact me here on this site.

INTUITIVE STREAM DRAWING WORKSHOP Level 2
For those who have completed Level 1
This workshop covers more of the in-depth steps taken when using the intuitive stream drawing method shared in MAKING MARKS: DISCOVER THE ART OF INTUITIVE DRAWING. We explore drawing freely, with intention, to solve problems and to seek answers to life’s questions. Working with others, we put into practice these steps: Draw with Emotion, Gaze, Trust Your Words and Discover and Connect (covered in the MM book). This is a workshop for people interested in developing a deeper level of intuitive intelligence and for healing arts practitioners who wish to learn to use this method for personal use, or to potentially use stream drawing seriously with clients:

Participants drawing and discussing at a recent Intuitive Stream Drawing Workshop in Virginia
Intuitive Stream Drawing Level 3
For those who have completed Level 1 and 2.
In this workshop, participants experience one-on-one sessions, reading for others throughout the session time and discussing/integrating content using the Four Directions ( 2 Life Experience views and 2 Chakra Chart views covered in the MM book). This in-depth experience is very valuable and necessary for those wishing to use this modality daily with clients.
This certification also includes related and integrated practices:
Memory Divination: Using ILLUMINARA INTUITIVE JOURNAL with CARDS, combined with Intuitive Heart techniques*, we’ll explore how memory and personal life story informs us and will always guide us.
Dream Divination: Using ILLUMINARA INTUITIVE JOURNAL with CARDS we will explore dreaming for each other and discover how our dreams can heal us and guide us, connecting us to the “Divine Within” and enabling us to serve one another in the process.
Intuitive Readings: You will practice giving intuitive readings with ILLUMINARA INTUITIVE JOURNAL with CARDS as part of this course (and build confidence through experience!). This supports your development of building a visual-intuitive language which is all your own.
What you get: Experience with many ways in which visual images convey emotional and intuitive content, exploring how multi-dimensional these intuitive stream drawings are when we consider them as tools for reflection.
What you will need: You will need a hard copy of MAKING MARKS: Discover the Art of Intuitive Drawing, a blank sketchbook (8 x 10 or 9 x 12 approx.), art pencils and/or pens.
Offered as an all-day workshop only/small and large group
$250. tuition fee, must own a hard copy of the MM book and come with sketchbook and pencil.
