All Sprints include two one-hour Zoom group sessions, videotaped lessons, and lively community engagement and sharing of art assignments

April and May Sprints (Sunday-Sunday) 

Think Like Grandma Moses

– Daily interaction and well-explained short video lessons on youtube (via private group on Discord.com) to guide you to draw and paint–even if you have no previous experience. 

– Fun art lessons that take you outdoors into a beautiful comfort zone close to home

– Challenge yourself with a range of art supplies and techniques that gently stretch what you think you’re capable of doing

– Discover how the Genesis Cards work to deepen self-knowledge and awareness of the intuitive Creative Master within each of us.

– Learn how to give generous, heartfelt feedback to others in the community that helps them, and you, fall in love with the creative process every time you paint or draw.

– Enjoy observing and creating synchronicities you never dreamed possible

– Zoom sessions take place on the first and last Sundays of the Sprint, adjusted for the time zones of our small but wonderfully international community

$99 for 14 Day Sprint

What to Expect:

You’ll receive daily one-minute videos that demonstrate a daily art exercise to help you break down barriers to drawing. With a free mind, you’ll discover how to own the full expanse of the sketch paper in vivid colors and uplifted emotions. These videos help you connect your feelings to your subject even before you’ve set down a single stroke on the sketchpaper.

The videos arrive directly to a private WhatsApp Group for this Sprint.

Upload your drawings and exchange comments on the easy-to-use platform, Discord.com, where you’ll be invited to join a private group for this Sprint. But don’t worry and don’t feel daunted by these two platforms. Whatsapp we’re all familiar with, and Discord.com helps keep all your art organized and in one place, for others in our community to instantly access and comment upon. (Discord.com is free to download).

Who Are We?

I’m Liane Wakabayashi, creator of the Genesis Cards and founder of Genesis Art Workshops. Since the year 2000 I’ve been guiding both inexperienced and professional artists, therapists and teachers into the profound world of intuitive drawing, specifically connecting the dots between your work of art and a randomly chosen Genesis Card. I offer supportive feedback so that you can better see intuitive connections that arise out of the drawings you make, and see how clear and wise is your intuition when you focus on a theme, and a randomly chosen Genesis Card matches what you’ve just drawn.

Genesis Art brings people from many cultures and countries who are open to drawing – no matter whether they’re accomplished artists or beginners – and share from an open heart. Currently we are in the US, UK, Canada, Japan and Israel, and we welcome all!

Begin by Getting to Know Each Other

We start with a Zoom session to meet other members of our Sprint. This creative group attract like-minded people, who bond in trust, laughter, synchronicity and support on the easy-to-use, beautifully organized Discord.com App, where each member receives their own inbox to upload art and share observations that come from comparing a work of art with a randomly selected Genesis Art Card.
The more art you do, the more conf
ident you become. The connections you see between your art and a randomly chosen card, support this exciting process from start to finish.

Genesis Art Card App

The Genesis Art Card App is included when you sign up for a Genesis Art Sprint.

App for free when you sign up! ($9.99 value)

Have the App already? Send us a friend’s name and we’ll send a complimentary promo code with thanks.

In Genesis Art, we soften our gaze and connect with the artist within. The 44 Genesis Cards are both a tool of artistic inspiration, and intuitive companionship that I’m going to show you multiple ways to use for making art that’s fun to do and a joy to look at afterwards.

Every day, members check into the App platform for daily instructions on what to draw, along with words of inspiration.

When you’re done drawing, upload into a mailbox with your name on it so that others can see and offer our Genesis-style positivity comments based on comparing a member’s drawing with a randomly chosen card.

Members are welcome to hang out in a separate channel on the App, called the Art Lounge, to share extraneous things going on, but very much related to the process of drawing every day. In this way, people bond and feel supportive, no matter how many time zones away we are!

When you join this Sprint, you get immediate access to the exclusive Sprint App group to upload your art, and to give and receive supportive comments. If you’re curious about the Genesis Cards, this is your opportunity to learn how to use them skilfully, as a tool for creative inspiration. Any questions you have, I’ll answer live on Zoom when we meet.
Meet live in a Zoom session at the starting date for self-introductions and to learn more about Genesis Art. Celebrate completion at the end of each Sprint by sharing amazing syncronicities and other surprising discoveries about your intuitive artist within.

For the Sprints, you’ll need a lap-size sketchpad, quality rainbow-colour crayons, watercolours or pastels (we recommend anything made by Swiss Caran Dache). You’ll also need a phone with the Whatsapp, installed on it.

I had an experience in this class of being felt, seen and heard when my drawing partner in California had us dancing in the moonlight. For me, it was profound and I never forget it.

The last drawing I did felt like the culmination of a year of doing Genesis Art. It was something I went into thinking if it works great, it is doesn’t fine. A poem opened the door to recalling a children’s poem that I would have loved to illustrate. It gave me the confidence. Not only was this drawing good. I loved doing it. It expressed everything that I am, including my quirky sense of humor. That’s what art is to me. The total value of art is that it shows that Liane’s work is Liane’s, that my art is mine.
Growth, development and bonding —had do you put a value on it?
By doing Genesis Art you get to see yourself, but its a different version than what you’re used to.
To get any results that create a wow, that is so cool. With Genesis Art, that’s my heart on paper.
