Visionary artists Alex Grey and Allyson Grey teach painting and drawing from the wellspring of divine imagination. In this workshop, artists at any level of experience create from the sacred ground and the mystic eye.
Through illustrated talks, vision practices, and group interaction, we empower the process of bringing our heart’s iconography to outer form and examine the worldwide visionary art movement.
Using guided imagery, meditation, shamanic ascent, and live model chakra drawings of body and soul, we open the doors of the imagination to the theater of revelation. Utilizing basic materials such as graphite, colored pencils, pastels, and watercolors, we commit mental pictures to paper and discuss the aesthetic dimension of our mystical experiences. Explore art as a spiritual path and art as a career, address technical concerns, and define your creative goals.
