Are you afraid of the blank canvas, so much so that you find it difficult to begin?

Do you long to create art journal pages or paintings on canvas but find yourself stuck or paralyzed by fear more often than you actually create?

Is perfectionism or the fear of messing it up getting in the way of you having a productive art life and putting your work out there?

Do you want to cut loose in your art more, stretch into new territory but have been kind of nervous about doing so?

Facing your Fears really was instrumental in helping to loosen up with my art and find my own style. Stephanie's teaching style was fundamental in allowing me to achieve this. Angella

Through the creation of FACES:

We will explore what the fears are, where they may have come from, and their distinct voices and how they affect your art life. We will also explore your voice of truth.

We will use some getting started techniques to get around the fear and manage the anxiety you may be feeling around creating.

We will learn to let our creativity flow and see what happens, using our mistakes” as happy accidents.

We will learn how to use our intuition to get to the next step and the next.

Finally we will create portraits of courage in which we explore the traits that will keep us moving boldly in our art and in our lives.

We will have breaking loose list of our own to achieve some of our personal goals with our art as well as a running list of "breaking loose" activities we can use throughout each week of the course.


The course is based on the following concepts:

You can change what you think and how you handle your own thoughts.

You don’t have to believe everything you think.

Fear does not go away.

Fear makes a good case for itself and is usually very reasonable and so  you need a voice to talk back to it.

Feeling the fear, moving with it and through it, is a primary way of walking with your fear and not letting it control you.

Fear is often a signal that we are on the verge of growth.

The flip side of fear is excitement. We must be able to own and enjoy our excitement and know the difference.

You have a higher self/voice of truth/true self (many names for it) that knows the truth of who you are beyond your fears. This voice needs to be nurtured and cultivated.

"The Facing Your Fears workshop was the beginning of a turning point in my life. I learned to stop listening to the voice of fear telling me I wasn't deserving. Through the exercises I learned how to stretch myself and break loose of the negative beliefs I'd been harboring. I learned to take risks and to move through the fears rather than run from them. I learned how to start trusting my intuition and believe in myself." Lynn
