The Intuitive Composition Course was such a success that an exclusive ICMe Mentorship sprung up from it. Created as a 6 wk course, it’s so chockablock full of rich content (I couldn’t help myself!) that I am now adding more content to it and also making it an 8 week course! IC has received rave reviews. See below to read more about it!
Some of you may know that my approach to my art making is process driven. By that I mean, I am an explorer led by curiosity into the creation of my paintings. I love chasing a composition. It's not the easiest because it's a moving target but that may be one of the reasons why it's so exciting.
Intuitive Composition is a course I designed to assist artists hone their art-making practice where they can create authentically while developing their design skills. However you approach painting, whether you realize it or not, you are making a composition. But are you making work that is as powerful and expressive as you would like?
I share my processes with you in Intuitive Composition, along with my approaches, discoveries and best practices. We’ll look at your processes too. There are effective ways to deal with composition and I’ll share mine with you. Ultimately we are all after the same thing, creative expression and to make our strongest and most authentic work.
My approach is freeing, fun, illuminating and embraces the uniqueness of being an artist. The content is very generous with ample videos, demonstrations and support with demos, live chats, printables, creative assignments and way more than I can mention. The course is structured in a way that each module builds upon the previous.
The feedback on the Intuitive Composition course has been exceptional, but I am always interested in improvement. Currently I am working on extending the length of the course with 2 additional weeks.
Come join me on this next fabulous adventure of Intuitive Composition!
So excited to do this with you.
Intuitive Composition exceeded all my expectations. I had good vibes that this course would offer me enjoyment and enrichment, but it also enhanced my overall awareness of my own process and development. Pauline's generosity and passion for art are clearly apparent and fully shares her ethos throughout the modules. You are guided through each section with sensitivity and enthusiasm which in turn stimulate and provide the necessary confidence for you to move on and discover new things.
This course far surpassed my expectations! It helped me go deeper in my understanding of various composition frameworks, but also included sections on color, inspiration, tools and exercises to help me find my own voice. Pauline is an amazing and enthusiastic teacher who gives so generously of her time and experience. She fosters a safe and nurturing environment and even inspired me to share my work for the first time! Highly recommend!
Absolutely loved this course! Pauline is a born teacher and a master at video and it is like she is speaking to you personally. She is so generous in the knowledge she imparts and makes you feel like you can be vulnerable by showing her own and talking about her own experiences. The way the course is structured gave time to work on each module. The participants were all at different stages of their art practice and Pauline made sure all felt included and adapted to everyone’s needs.
This course is absolutely brilliant. The modules are full of information, inspiration, videos and explorations. They are clearly structured and built upon each other. One of the best courses I ever participated. Exceptional support, many additional live calls on Facebook too.
I have been painting for many years, taken a lot of courses and pursued higher fine art education but Pauline's course really honed in on what art school glazed over. I was in a bit of slump creatively this past Covid winter and decided to take an 'inspirational' course to kick-start my intuitive fun explorations in painting. The IC course was far and beyond what I expected. Pauline gave SO MUCH of herself, her art practice, clear and practical details of design + composition etc. with great videos and concise reference material. I can't say enough about how rich and wonderful this experience was. Thank you Pauline!
It’s so clear how much thought and time Pauline put into this class and so glad to be part of the first round. This was by far the best online course I've taken. Pauline is so kind, generous, thoughtful, supportive - and fun! I was in a rut and frustrated with my painting and am so grateful for the rich and inspiring content that filled up my tank!
Pauline's IC course has been a fantastic 6 weeks of creativity and learning in great company. I've done several courses in the past, but this one demystified and clarified so much: I've had so many 'aha' moments that I feel I can really progress and develop my art more intuitively. The video content was excellent: Pauline communicates so clearly and the demonstrations were so well put together to exemplify the concepts being developed. I'm very much a visual learner, so having nearly all the content in video form was perfect. I cannot recommend this course highly enough: I loved it.
Pauline’s course was amazing and a unique approach to composition, intuitive or traditional. Each module was deep and informative. I found her techniques, suggestions and roll out of the elements of the course really helpful. She helped me reach inside myself for inspiration and courage to take risks and play. I would take this course again; not because I didn’t learn what I needed to learn, but because the depth of her instruction, her support both with the video, the weekly calls, and written information were things that I would greatly appreciate hearing again. I’ve been learning how to paint for 4 years, taken many classes and workshops. In this course, I never once thought, “done this before.” I highly recommend it!
This course is loaded with content. Pauline is the most supportive teacher of any course I've taken. Pauline gave a huge amount of her time to each of us in this course. Pauline genuinely cares about the participants of her course and ensured that each of us got the most we possibly could from every aspect of the course. Be that feedback on our paintings, answering our questions, checking in frequently via live video on facebook, and sharing her vast knowledge. All of that and Pauline's concise, easy and relaxed way of teaching has made this course a really valuable gift for me. I can say without reservation that you will not be disappointed with this course. I loved it. Judy L.
Of all the art courses I have taken, and there have been many over the last 30 years, Pauline’s Intuitive Composition has surpassed them all. I wasn’t sure how an on line art course could work, as all my others had been in person. She has managed to fill each module with well thought out, easy to understand lessons complemented by sooo many video tutorials! Sharing and seeing work by others in the group is helpful and critiques are a bonus! I’m not quite there figuring out what my intuitive painting looks like, but this course and Pauline’s inspiration has sparked me to continue playing, experimenting and reaching within!!!
I gifted myself Intuitive Composition as a means to round out the instruction in my Fine Arts painting class. It is the best thing I could have done. As a new 'artist' dare I call myself that, I found I was not just fulfilling required course assignments but giving myself permission to be free to explore and learn in a very well instructed, inspiring and supported environment. Thank you Pauline for your generously given time and knowledge within the course and on the Facebook group.
Come join my free Facebook group, Paint The Way, where I, and a wonderful community of artists join me in engaging and sharing best practices and creative art-making processes. Generously spreading the love : )
