"I've been wanting to paint for a long time now but didn't know how to get started. I still had college memories tormenting me of how horrible my still lives were so there was a bit of mindset work that needed to happen.
Kia started the course, first things first, with mindset. Each class Kia introduced a new technique and each time I learned more about my intuitive me. You are forced not to think and just react.
I realized in this class how badly I wanted to get away from perfectionism and embrace freedom to create with no judgement. Now, all I want to do is find time to paint. Thank you Kia for introducing my intuitive self to me and guiding me to something I really needed in my life."
This course has been designed for acrylic paint. However, if you are confident with another type of medium you can still join and adapt as you see fit.

This class is appropriate whether you have zero experience or lots of experience. It's suitable for all : )
Painting is an excellent way for people who want to connect to their intuition. During this course you will build the skill of connecting to your intuition using paint as the medium to learn!
