Flora Bowley's Class on Fluid Beauty - Bloom True
|Her new book on Blooming.|
I recently took her 5 week class focusing on colors, imagery, intuition, in my
opinon, a fluid beauty.
Bloom True focuses on the individual allowing rather than forcing the beauty of their imagination and soul to permeate the canvass. Flora gives tips and exercises to help you get out of your own way and ease into a interactive song with your paints, hands, tools and heart. Fluid motion.
There are two days a week of painting instruction, 4 other days of valued teaching on attitudes, fear, how to open up, where to find imagery, getting out of fear and into fearless, and how to stay inspired. Flora's unique style is captured in a host of videos, written instructions
and homework. The homework is fun!!!
Now having given this review, I won't claim to be the best bloomer. There are so many others in the class tho that NAILED the concept and have so much to share in this unique blend of color, shape and beauty. My personal style seems to be more "vivid" and without as much imagery, but I did try to give her a go. :-) (See some students work who are just like YOU below - absolute beauty!)

Maybe a bit more expensive than many online classes, Flora's class took some time for me to decide to purchase. Having said that, after the class I would not alter my decision in any way and encourage you - if you want a daily discipline for 5 weeks that will transform your work - this is a great investment.
Lastly, and this cannot be promised to the next group, but my Bloom True Class of Early Summer 2012 has proven to be a host of new and wonderful friends. We formed a bond in Flora's private Facebook Group for Bloomers, that is ongoing every day- and we finished about 6 weeks ago I believe. With Flora's energy behind it, we have become an encouraging, supportive and loving group of artists helping each other in any way we can.
I give Flora's class a 4 out of 5 Stars. Truly a great experience.

If you are a graduate of Flora's Class and would like to have one of your paintings shown here, please email the jpeg to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will compile them over the next week and add to the post. Here is a chance to show your stuff! (include credits - your name, name of painting if you have one, and your website link if you have one.)
