Soul Portraits Retreat 2019

Soul Portraits Painting Retreat

Stowel Lake Farm, Salt Spring Island, British Columbia

April 29 – May 7 , 2019 

Working on your own canvas, you will be supported and guided step-by-step to paint your own Soul Portrait, a personal journey into the Creative Self. Working in layers of acrylic paint and translucent glazes, you will be invited to look deeply into yourself and discover new elements that embellish your portrait, and bring depth and personal symbolism into your piece.

Autumn Skye offers attentive and comprehensive art instruction, giving balanced emphasis on cultivating creative intuition, as well as developing skilled technique and learning portraiture.

Autumn Skye seeks to share her own creative process, which allows the artist “to release judgment, move past our mind, breathe deep into the process, and find bliss in each step. We realize that we are boundlessly assisted in the authentic & heart-centered expression of our personal creative path. We show up, diligently do the “work” and leave the rest up to spirit to move through us.”

All painting levels welcome!

5-Day Workshop at CoSM: An Exploration of Intuition & Technique
to Jul 7

5-Day Workshop at CoSM: An Exploration of Intuition & Technique

  • CoSM: Chapel of Sacred Mirrors (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Over five days, students will explore their own unique expression, and bring a vision into form on their own canvas.

With balanced emphasis on cultivating creative intuition, as well as developing skilled technique, Autumn Skye offers comprehensive art instruction with numerous technical demonstrations, philosophical anecdotes, and attentive one-on-one support.

Each student will create their own piece, working from a reference and beginning on a blank canvas, dreaming into form their concept and empowering their faith in their intuition and the creative process. Autumn Skye will guide students through compositional mapping strategies, blocking in general forms, sculpting volumes, colour theory, glazing techniques, and final finessing of nuances “glow” and details.

Through the playful and profound process of looking deeply into the “mirror” of the canvas, we are invited to see the world and ourselves in new ways, while weaving depth and personal symbolism into the painting. All painting levels welcome!

Accommodations: Rooms are available for rent in the Grey House, CoSM’s fully renovated Visionary Victorian guest house.
