HEALING ARTS - The Personal Mandala and Intuitive Painting
Dawn’s Art Career transformed in 2007 where she met three amazing talented ladies and ultimately opened “The Frolicking Femme Art Boutique, Mount Dora, Florida. This environment of strong, connected women sparked the Intuitive and Mandala workshops where women shared their most deepest emotions in their paintings. This was the beginning of a new path of Healing ARTS.
Dawn will engage you to embrace your Inner Artist and tap into your true creativity. Her gentle, natural and unassuming style breaks down walls and opens up communication. This experience will strengthen bonds, expose misconceptions and deepen trust. With a mix of intuitive painting techniques, music and mood enhancing diffused oils, you will connect with your most Authentic “Self”.
Many of Dawn’s students have never painted before and they have found a new voice to express their authentic self through painting. Dawn also integrated the same painting style into her 2 hour step-by-step painting workshops. Dawn also continues to teach anatomy and portraiture drawing through Private and Group Lessons. Her ART is in galleries in Mount Dora FL and Milwaukee WI.
Dawn and her husband, Author and Life Coach, Joe Mader, currently live in Wisconsin Dells, WI, with their bearded collie, Marley. (We lost our dear Frodo last December 2014 but he is very close to our hearts)
“My purpose is to HEIGHTEN YOUR CREATIVE AWARENESS, help you to heal any road blocks in your life, and guide you through an amazing journey of “Self Discovery” through painting. I feel it is a positive step toward a better world, filled with caring, loving people that will share their experiences. I am filled with gratitude to share my Artistic journey and help my fellow Artists and Dreamers grow their natural creativity.
This is a safe, joyful environment where people let go and grow.
