What you'll learn in this painting class:

Process Painting Workshop & Retreat with Stewart Cubley.

In these process painting workshops, everyone is a beginner. The Painting Experience is about creativity and free expression, rather than technique, training, or expertise.

  • Discover a creative voice that is entirely your own  
  • Learn to trust your intuitive perception
  • Overcome creative blocks    
  • Recognize process painting as a genuine path to spiritual awakening

The Painting Experience is returning to VisArts in Rockville, MD after many years. Join Stewart Cubley and Matt Belay for this transformational weekend of process painting where you'll experience the exhilaration of creating without the pressure to perform, produce or succeed.

" In a safe atmosphere that genuinely honors and respects individual differences, process painting shows us that we can let go into the unfolding, ongoing movement of life itself with all its surprises, delights and challenges.

This weekend, we explore the relationship between painting and mindfulness, bringing special attention to using process painting as a tool for deepening awareness. Join us and discover the courage to trust the spontaneous aspect of your own nature.

No prior experience in painting or meditative practice is required. We’ll all be starting from beginner's mind.

Your tuition includes all art materials, over 14 hours of facilitated painting sessions, group discussion circles in supportive community, a video presentation about creativity and the practice of art as process. .

We'll supply all the art materials you'll need for the week as well as an apron to protect your clothing.

We ask that you work with the materials provided rather than bringing other painting supplies. Chairs or stools will be available.

We recommend that you bring the following items:

  • comfortable shoes for moving and standing
  • a water bottle, to stay hydrated
  • a notebook or a journal, if you think you might like to take notes or write between sessions.
  • if you’ve been working with a facilitator online or in a previous workshop, bring your unfinished painting with you.
