For people who like to draw and paint or for those who are not used to such activities and like to experience the fun of being creative, we offer a week of relaxation with the possibility to intuitively draw and paint. During such a week you can focus yourself on such activities. Reasons to intuitively paint can be very diverse. For example, you want to gain more insight into your own performance on another level, or just want to focus on aspects in your life where you usually pay less attention to. Drawing and painting can make you feel relaxed, and is beneficial to calm your busy mind.
A unique concept
Because intuition and painting are individual processes, we offer you a unique concept that is not cast in a course form, but can completely be followed individually. We therefore offer you the possibility to book a holiday with us at a time of your choice. You can come alone or with a group created by you and you mail us in front that you want to paint intuitively. You will then receive for one week 7 intuitive-painting-exercises and you can use the materials that are available for you at our location.
You can choose to do one exercise every day and perform that at a time that suits you. You can go sit outside or in the gîte when you draw or paint. Additionally, you can choose at what time you start each day with the exercises and how long you work on them. Who wants to have a short process, does not have to feel obligated to paint all day and those who like to entertain themselves for many hours, are also free to do so. Every exercise is an individual process that you have with yourself (or with the people that you asked to join you). Every exercise includes an explanation of what you can do and also contains suggestions which encourage your intuitive process. So there is no “class” or further assistance given. Drawing and painting gives you pleasant daytime activity and besides that you of course enjoy your nice holiday.
You pay the cost of your stay in accordance with our standard rates which can be found on our website and are also responsible for your trip to our location. You are also responsible for your meals and you can join a few evenings a week an eveningmeal at our vegetarian table d’hôtes if you like. (The costs of such meals are not included in the fee.) You specify when you come over for a holiday at our place and tell us in front that you want to paint intuitively during your holidays and that you like to receive the intuitive-exercises on arrival. You receive an intuitive-exercise for every day.
For a week, intuitive painting, you pay € 150,- per person. (You get the seven exercises, drawing paper and five canvases that you can take home afterwards and you may use the materials on our place such as acrylic paint, brushes, pencils and chalk.)
The exercises have a structure in terms of difficulty. So if you decide to come over for a week in France and later decide to come back for a week to paint, you will get other exercises. Of course you can also stay at our place for an extended period of time to paint intuitively. If you want to stay longer and perform more exercises, please contact us. Guidance or assistance is not needed during this process and is not included in the course fee. If, however, you are in a phase of your life in which you need personal assistance, you can contact us for additional rates for groups that want guidance. (Such assistance is only possible in the low season.)
Below you can view two videos. A general film and an example film in which an intuitive painting process is extensively visualized.
Monique Hendriks obtained her Bachelor degree of Social Work in 1994 and studied at the Social Academy “de Kopse Hof” in Nijmegen. During her studies she specialized herself in Creative Educational Work. During the time she worked as a social pedagogical worker, she provided creative activities for various groups.
Creativity can achieve growth in all areas and is very relaxing. You can gain more confidence, discover things about yourself that you did not know about and broaden your horizons with it. Intuitive painting is a special process because you do not only work with your hands but also with your mind, heart and soul. Moreover, it gives an extra dimension to your life because of the spiritual and meditative aspect of it.
You can perform all creative inspirational weeks solitary or together with people you bring with you. It not only provides you relaxation, but also insights that bring you close to yourself. Guidance or assistance is not needed during this process and is not included in the course fee. If, however, you are in a phase of your life in which you need personal assistance, you can contact us for additional rates.
This also applies to groups with special wishes and needs in terms of counseling or assistance. Of course you can also come over for a longer period to draw or paint. Please contact us to discuss your wishes and then we can provide you the rates which depend on the materials you want to use.
