I went to a nearby park to see cherry blossoms. I painted a woman walking with her sick old dog in her arms. The old dog was wearing a cute honeybee outfit. I called out to her and asked her to look at the drawing I had done. She was delighted.

This is an ideal season to cultivate a practice of drawing outside and making strides in your artistic self-confidence. One of the joys of Spring is seeing fresh green leaves again. The flowers and the birds come back. The fragrance in the air changes. And as nature shifts to a gentler season, changes stir within us too to make time in our busy lives for one of the most relaxing ways to connect with the Spring season--by drawing nature close to home. Every day for 10 days you'll receive a 1-2 minute video by Liane to inspire you with the daily exercise. In addition to Liane's drawing prompts, you'll receive a delightful short poem by Kris Moon Kondo. We start with a Zoom session to meet other members of our Sprint. This is a small, friendly group who bond in trust and support as each day we leave and receive comments on the easy-to-use Discord.com App. As your guide and coach, Liane will offer supportive feedback to help you go beyond what you ever imagined possible as a new artist.

"Doing intuitive art with the Genesis Art Card App was really centering. I normally find that I'm not that focused at home. I couldn't believe how I got absorbed in drawing. It was sort of a revelation to me. Every card I picked had meaning. The first card that I got was Trust, which was exactly what I wanted, because in truth I was a bit timid to start this Sprint."
JB, Japan

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. People 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.
