TESTIMONIES FROM ARTISTS LIKE YOU...

The Mentorship and BOW have influenced my Artist Soul to come out of hiding! My creative practice is rooted with more confidence and the “gremlins” aka, inner critic and fear, to name a couple, no longer drive the bus. I was equipped with which tools to use when, especially if I was feeling “stuck.” What is funny about that is I used the word “stuck” on the regular pre-mentorship and BOW, and even just typing that word now feels so foreign. Creative “ruts” don’t exist anymore…and I’ve learned to lean into rest and integration as a necessary part of who I am as an artist.~ Theresa Collins, Georgia, USA

The weekly content really helped me to understand myself more as an artist; what type of artist I am, what moves me to make art, etc. Connecting those dots made me much more comfortable in my artist skin and excited to explore my art making further. ~ Tigz DePalma, Ibiza, Spain

Connie is the best! She is nurturing, while holding you accountable. She is encouraging, while empowering your independence. There is something so special about any of her mentorships or retreats...so much more than art, it's hard to explain. ~ Alisa G., Pennsylvania, USA

The Mentorship completely altered my relationship of one that was looking at, and facing my practice, and my artist soul, to one where I walk WITH my artist soul and my practice tends to be more of a reflection of that.

Instead of saving materials for “later”, or when I’m “better”, I use it all. I’m more intentional and focused in my approach, more accepting of what my heart wants, not what I think I “need” to do.

My attitude towards what is “good” or otherwise has altered greatly as well. My art, is MY art, and if I love it! ~ Elizabeth Emerson., Maine, USA

I  absolutely recommend the Mentorship!!! Its more than just the nuts and bolts of understanding the creative process and the Artist Soul relationship, it's really honing a deeper connection to the flow of creativity and how it wants to be expressed through you as an artist.

The Mentorship was amazing, it was beautiful, I was seen, heard, and loved, it was a sacred time and space that I will cherish.~ Kathie Sarginson., Sydney, Australia

I highly recommend the Mentorship! With Connie's support, I embarked on a profound learning experience that opened new levels of my creative practice. This experience was beyond my wildest dreams! ~ Lori C., Calgary, Canada

Is The Mentorship Right For YOU?

Paint Wisdom Mentorship Is Perfect For...

  • Artists in search of mentorship that fosters authenticity, honesty, and vulnerability in their art. In the Paint Wisdom Mentorship, you'll receive INDIVIDUALIZED guidance and mentorship to develop a body of work that not only enhances your artistic practice but also nurtures a deeper relationship with yourself as an artist. Your creations will reflect, explore, and draw inspiration from themes that hold personal significance to you.
  • Artists comfortable with independently crafting a body of work, familiar with generating their own ideas, setting creative goals, and selecting materials. However, they yearn for the magical experience of creating in community and dream of having support.
  • Artists who fiercely love painting and are committed to continuous growth and evolution in their artistic journey.
  • Artists who embrace experimentation, taking risks, and seek-out the awe and wonder found in their creative process.
  • Artists who find value in guided visualizations and contemplative journaling, using these tools to deepen their connection with their work and nurture their imaginative spirit.
  • Artists who believe there is more to making art than just creating pretty pictures —they prefer to linger in the deeper currents of their creativity.

The Paint Wisdom Mentorship IS NOT WELL SUITED FOR...

  • Artists at the beginner level. Participants should have a minimum of 3 years of experience in art-making and feel adept at working independently.
  • Artists seeking technical or step-by-step instruction or aiming to emulate Connie's artistic style.
  • Artists who solely turn to art as a means of coping with life's challenges or processing emotions. While Paint Wisdom is inherently healing, it is not intended as a therapeutic space for addressing trauma or deep emotional issues.
  • Artists who pursue art primarily as a hobby or leisure activity. Paint Wisdom delves deeply into the context and significance of our art within our creative journey. Those without an established creative practice may find the retreats overwhelming.
  • Artists who shy away from engaging in meaningful discussions on art or participating in guided visualizations.
  • Artists solely looking for guidance on the business aspect of making art. The Paint Wisdom Mentorship primarily focuses on artistic growth and creative expression. While we brush upon the business aspects of art in the final trimester, a deeper exploration is reserved for BOW, the second installment of my Mentorship program.
