My hope is that Wild Side Guides will become a series where we will dive into the natural world to unearth our inner wisdom and maybe notice somethings we haven't noticed before. Perhaps we will transform old stories, find breakthroughs, laugh, cry, feel more confident, or discover our creative voice. When we open to the perspectives of our wild side friends we learn about ourselves, and are able to shift our own consciousness to notice things we haven't noticed before.
I suggest beginning with the journal prompts and then moving to the painting videos. Each video chapter contains 2 videos-one in regular speed with narration and a written outline with video times and a second video of the original video sped up.
You should also receive an invitation to the Wild Side Cafe (which is only for wild side participants) and Building Wings Creative Studio Cafe on Facebook if you would like to join to share your journey and support each other. This invite will be in your access letter. If you follow the link in the PDF it will take you to the facebook page and you can join. You can also post questions there or email me at ( firstname.lastname@example.org). Look for your invitation in your email inbox within 48 hours of starting the course if you signed up with your email..
I have posted a short welcome video below, as well as all the documents for the class. At the bottom of the page you will find a link to the next section.
These are the materials I use below in the video. Please do not feel like you have to go and buy new things. Use what you have, these are what I had on hand, and what I use most often. -12x 16 Watercolour paper (140lbs) (use whatever size you feel would like or even do it in a journal) -Reference photo (optional) I found mine here (https://unsplash.com) The one I used is in your journal file-as well as below. The name of the photographer is the name of the file. (Unsplash is a site where photographers gift their photos for use for free) -watersoluble pencil (optional) -Charcoal (optional) -Pencil -Acrylic Paints
(your choice I would say choose 3-6 of your favourite colours. I choose to use funky colours the entire time-I experimented with some other colours as you will see in the videos. I started with Raw, Umber (dark Brown), Sienna (light brown), white and black-but later decide to use dioxane purple and turquoise. I love layers in my work but you can start with any colours you want.
-Paint brushes -palette or something to put paints on -paper towel, baby wipes -water for rinsing brushes and wetting paper towel to wipe layers off if needed -water spray bottle (optional) -Gel Pens for decorating (I used the moonglow collection which are very bright and fluorescent)
Here are some reference photos that are mentioned in the materials as well as the one I used in the videos
