Intuitive Painting Workshops

How often do you play? Let go? Have fun for the fun of it? Just totally trust your intuition?


We live in a busy world that demands high performance, multi-tasking, following the process and playing by the rules.

There is not much room for creativity in our every day lives.

We have lost our connection to nature, and to our deep, inner, true, creative and intuitive selves.

And we need to RE-CREATE it.

The word recreation comes from root words meaning ‘to restore to health’, ‘to refresh’ and ‘to create anew’.

I am Miranda van den Heuvel, creative life coach and the founder of Create and Connect, a non-profit with a mission to inspire change through creativity. I have created the Intuitive Painting workshop for people who want to reconnect with their intuition, their inner child and their own, unique creativity.

The workshop will open the door to your creative flow with some valuable lessons on creating your life instead of reacting to it.

It is primarily a course about painting techniques. The subjects of tools, color theory, mixing paint, composition, value and layering will be covered, the intention is to present a holistic approach to life and painting, one that empowers, inspires and encourages you to paint like you.


This was pure soul treatment for the brain, I felt extremely well after that painting day and was like dancing on the sun.
The inspiration for the brain to do something completely different was a very good experience for me. It teaches me that stimulation from a completely different area, like art, brings creative feeling in you – a very nice feeling. Yes, you can be creative, this is what I have learnt and it makes me very happy.
It opens a door to a new experience of how you can spend your free time with yourself.
The choice of colors and materials, the nice painting environment and nice women around were the cherry on the top! This type/technique of painting is something for everyone ! Everyone can learn to paint like this – in his own style.

Is this workshop for me?

  • I want to (re)discover painting and being creative
  • I want to have fun
  • I want to (re)connect with my inner self
  • I am curious
  • I can not paint
  • I am not creative
  • I want to find a creative balance to my busy work/family life

  • I have some painting experience and want to discover something new

If any of the above is true for you, then this workshop is perfect for you.

This one day in this tiny & cosy workshop dedicated to painting was for me the possibility to be away from the routine, explore my hidden talents of mixing colors, explore my creative part and be relaxed with no challenge.
It is accessible for everyone including people like me that do not dare to paint. Surrounded by lovely people in a beautiful environment made it special.
You come back home with 2 paintings and the satisfaction to have discovered something new.
