My workshops & retreats are a deep-dive into the art-soul connection.

connie solera workshops

As a teacher with 25+ years of experience, I combine the insight of being a professional working artist with my obsession for everything mystical about art and creativity.

I am dedicated to helping my students identify their visual language, strengthen their creative voice, heighten their authentic mark, and create art that makes their cells sizzle.

Being an artist involves more than just making art. Artists foster meaning and bring inspiration to life. This belief is the foundation of all my workshops and retreats.

Lets create art that makes your cells sizzle!

In my workshops and retreats, you will...

Be invited to embody the truth of who you are as an artist and gain a solid understanding of the mystical and practical mechanics of your unique creative process. Expect to be challenged as well as celebrated, held, and inspired.

NEVER be asked to follow step-by-step instructions. In other words, your painting will NOT look like mine or anyone else’s. I saturate each workshop and retreat with heart-opening, insightful instructions on embodying the creative process and crafting your life as an artist.  My programs are designed to get you painting deeper than ever before and loving the marks that are 100% your own!

Find yourself immersed in a supportive, warm environment to explore your creative process and express yourself openly. You’ll be heard, seen and loved for exactly who you are and how you’re showing up! All skill levels and backgrounds are welcomed. The only requirement is a true, sincere desire to Paint FEARLESS®!

Calling all women artists who . . .

Embrace creativity as a way of life—even the messy parts.
Yearn to express their own unique artistic style and voice.
Wonder about the deeper currents of their creative process.
Seek a community of artists that are supportive and soulful.
Are Ready. I mean really ready to embody the artist they truly are.

Sound like you, Gorgeous?

Yay! Then come join me for one (or more) of my adventures!

Kind words from my beloved students

Marlee Prestell

Connie has this way of knowing exactly what you need before you know you need it.  After seven years of art education I have never come across an instructor like her before. She is my absolute favorite teacher. She teaches more than how to create beautiful works of art, you are taught how to be in the world as an artist.

Theresa Ratcliff

I have attended several classes and retreats with Connie Solara, and I can’t sing her praises loud enough! She is such a dynamic personality, you really have to experience her to understand! Connie is a remarkably talented artist, but she is also so much more. She is the most incredible teacher, leader, and gatherer of women that I have ever had the honor and privilege of working with.

Connie is an expert at teasing out exactly what each person is seeking in their individual creative process. She provides a safe place to explore, dig deep, and nurture you in working through any personal creative blocks.

Jennifer Maroney

Connie is a nurturing and open-hearted teacher who gently guides you into a deeper understanding of your creative process, visual language and yourself.

Jackie Puntoriero

Connie has an amazing way of encouraging and allowing an unfolding. This unfolding supports a flow and a unique body of work that reflects the feminine and its place in the world.

Jenny Loughmiller

Connie’s personal genius is not only her beautiful art but the way in which she guides her students through the creative process. She is truly masterful. She created a safe, nourishing space to push and question and explore and feel. I left the experience with a richer sense of the “why” behind my art and a vision of where I’m heading next. I can’t thank her enough for that gift.
