Painting to meet yourself...


Intuitive painting: First attempt at definition ;-)

Warning: this text was translated with Google translation help, from the french version. But I can feel that it doesn't sound like fluent english. In case someone wants to rephrase it, welcome !!!


"I admit it, the PointZeroPainting approach that I propose as a tool for exploration, development, and “growing up”,…is not easy to explain in one sentence. Not even two...


Let’s start with what it is not: art therapy. In the sense that you are not going to paint to “treat” or solve something specific. Which does not prevent intuitive painting from being a radical tool for liberation.


So, intuitive... Because intuition will be the vector between what you deeply need to express and your brush. As with insights, we don't know why it's emerging just now, where it comes from, but it's obvious. To the whole of us, not just to our minds. Intuition could be cultivated, it cannot be controlled.


My mind tries to interfere, with its army of little me's, but brushstroke after brushstroke, I don’t let it control myself. I free myself from its grip, and everything becomes more fluid.


No, I'm not happier... I'm more alive. And a joy rises in me that I didn't know, an organic joy: I feel the inside of my body expanding, as if each organ was lounging on a sofa in the sun. And you know what ? I give up trying to understand why. Why does this pink dot, or black line cause this?

I finally let myself do it on my own."

Intuitive painting, in practice

What do we do in a YesPainting intuitive painting course?

Essentially... we paint! And, brush in hand...

• you will discover how to unleash your creativity, identify the limits you give yourself... and how to overcome or circumvent them,

• you will feel free to listen and express with complete confidence what your intuition suggests to you,

• you will get to know yourself better,

• you will rediscover the pleasure of playing, by placing a color just because you want to, for no reason. And, as I like to say, this approach is not going to make you happier, it is going to make you much more alive!


How are the days organized?

As in all YesPainting courses, there are...

- a teaching part at the start of the day (45'),

- an individual coaching (4h30),

- and a sharing part at the end of the day.

Who are these workshops for?

  • to those who want to develop their creativity,
  • to those who want to use creativity as a tool for self-discovery,
  • to those who want to put their creativity into their daily life: personal life, relationships, professional life,
  • to those who feel blocked in their self expression,
  • to artists and creators who want to renew their inspiration,
  • to those who would like to create, or already create without knowing it,
  • to all those who want to play with colors and brushes without being afraid of being judged, of being compared,...
  • ...and to those who want to discover the PointZeroPainting approach developed by Michele Cassou.

Experienced artists or beginners with a brush are all welcome.
