Drawing can teach us to find our breath, deeply connect with our subjects and see more deeply and meaningfully. Michelle has created these Intuitive Drawing workshops as a means of quieting our critical minds using a series of drawing exercises which remove focus from the finished product. This allows drawing to become a more heart centered practice. Underneath it’s pencil and sketchbook exterior, intuitive drawing is meditation and connection. Intuitive Drawing is a means of seeing what is ‘Here’, what is ‘Now’. It is a means of being present in a chaotic world. It is a means of finding connection with the trees, peace in our hearts and rooting into our Mother Earth.
Please bring a sketchbook (at least 9×12″), your favorite drawing pens and pencils, a blanket or mat to sit on, water and sunblock.

Michelle VanderHouwen is the owner of Oak and Hawthorn and provides the plant babies for Ritualcravt’s annual plant sale. Throughout all her years, she has studied art as a window into Spirit and the psyche, and Nature has been her church. Michelle believes that our hands are magnificent communicators. When we let them dig, sculpt, draw, scrape, tie and sew, we are sending messages to and from Heart Center. Our hands, full of sensation but devoid of reasoning, can create pure, honest prayer. In Michelle’s classes she teaches, with a variety of tools, different ways of accessing Spirit using our hands and hearts. Her goal is to help us all access the knowing we had at birth. Michelle is deeply knowledgeable about the spiritual wisdom of nature, studied Shamanic Herbalism with Darcey Blue, and walks with the soul of a Witch.
