WHAT’S IT LIKE TO TAKE AN E-COURSE WITH ME? I’ll let my students take this one:
Mati Rose stands in that magical intersection of art and truth-telling. She’s a soulful storyteller and a powerful teacher. Dare to get messy. Create. And find some joy.”
– Dr. Brené Brown
Thank you for all those wonderful videos you have set up! I’ve been listening to them over and over while painting or cooking! I’ve had burst of painting and nothing during those days, but I have also been watching, listening and feeling daring because of the time I have allowed myself to do art and enjoy it… why didn’t I allow myself before blows me away! I love it so much and thank you for giving me that gift again.”
Mati’s prowess with paint is so inspiring! I thought it was going to feel really daunted painting with her, because she’s so talented, but instead I felt more freedom to express myself and my unique style than ever before! She made me feel comfortable, and at the same time encouraged me to push the envelope, get messy and keep going.
Mati’s years of experience as a professional artist has given her an incredible wellspring of tools to help others on this path. Whether it be guidance around a particular technique, or simply an encouraging cheer reminding me I am on the right track, Mati’s taught me how to stretch my creative muscles and infuse play and adventure into all areas of my life!”
What I love most about your Daring Adventures is that it frees up the part of me that wants to Control things! Art can be so unwieldy & unpredictable; your classes always remind and encourage me to swim in the wild waters instead of just standing at the edge dipping my toes in.”
When I listen to the painting, it’s always a win (because if I’m doing it right, the “painting” is my own intuition talking to me). BAM!”
I took several e-courses in the meantime, and it’s usually in your courses that I can really loosen up and just create No inner critic, no inhibitions, just making art. Thank you for that!”
