Painting “Your-life-canvas”

Draw a week intuitively on one canvas.

For those who like to work on their self-reflection, we offer the option to make a “life canvas” during your holiday. You depict aspects of your life on a (large) canvas using an exercise that consists of several steps described in documentation. If you want to make such a painting during your holiday, you can make it known in advance. You will then receive the exercise with explanation on Aarrival.

The rate and concept
You pay the standard rate for the stay, as stated on this website and pay an additional fee of 50 euros. For this amount, you will receive a canvas, additional necessary materials and documentation on arrival with an explanation about how to proceed. You can also use the acrylic paint available on our site, which will allow you to color your “life canvas”. You work independently, and you can choose how many hours you want to spend daily on this activity and at what time. It is an individual process, so there is no “class” or further assistance given.

Additional information
Unlike the doodle course, you are going more “into the depth” when you paint “your life on canvas”. You can keep in mind that you work about 2 hours a day on your canvas. Unlike the other intuitive painting week, you work on 1 canvas. It offers relaxation and eventually you have an image that is a reflection of your life at this moment. The painting gives you a pleasant daytime activity and besides that you of course enjoy your nice holiday.

The teacher
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.
