I believe passionately in every human’s ability to create, and I know deep down in my bones that creative expression is a crucial part of holistic well-being.
Just like moving your body, eating well, and fostering healthy relationships, fortifying your creative muscles is another powerful way to cultivate more happiness, healthiness, and confidence in your life — not to mention more spontaneity, innovation, connection, and play!
But your days are full, yes? And creativity is often the first thing to go when life gets hectic. But just like so many other things that feed your soul, staying connected to your creative desires and outlets, especially when you’re busy, can provide the fertile ground that makes everything else thrive.
In many ways, I created this course because it’s exactly the kind of art medicine I’ve been seeking in my own life. While I’ll always love creating large-scale acrylic paintings, I’ve been craving a more integrated kind of creativity — the kind that easily weaves itself into all aspects of my life — the kind that simply becomes my life.
This soulful, accessible, empowering, and FUN approach to creativity is what the Creative Revolution E-Course is all about.
Bringing to life and expanding upon my latest book, the Creative Revolution E-Course combines the spontaneity and warmth of an in-person workshop with the ease and accessibility of an online offering.
On October 2nd, I invite you to join me and a fantastic group of students (OMG, you’re going to love them) as we explore brand new Creative Exercises, invigorating Movement Sequences, Morning and Evening Sanctuaries, The Art of Aliveness Series, and so much more.
Designed to expand or contract to fit your life at any given moment, you’re invited to explore the course at your own pace or follow along with your international tribe of movers, makers + shakers. Spend five minutes or spend five hours — whatever works for you! You’ll also have access to the entire course for six months (from the course begin date), so there’s truly no need to rush.
For materials, you won’t need any fancy, expensive art supplies or a big space to create. All the Creative Exercises can be done right at your kitchen table with simple supplies that you might already have. Many other aspects of the course are meant to be experienced easefully throughout your day with no extra materials needed.
This offering has been in my heart and mind for the past year, and it’s unlike anything else I’ve created. I promise it will not feel like yet another item on your to-do list. Instead, it will feel like coming home to yourself again and again.
Flora is not only a talented painter, she is a generous teacher. She actively helps others find and activate creative expression. This is her most far-reaching gift.

Twenty-one, brand new, mixed media, Creative Exercises designed to reinvigorate any creative practice. The intention behind these mixed-media art-making activities is not to produce finished works of art. Rather, they are meant as jumping off points, focusing on play, experimentation, and letting go. Each week features three Creative Exercises presented to seven wonderful students with plenty of guidance, support, and encouragement along the way. Check out a full-length exercise here!
Seven Movement Sequences bring a variety of visual art making principles such as contrast, fluidity, flow, and shape shifting to life each week. The sequences are designed for all body types and can be done sitting or standing. In addition to the Movement Sequences, you’ll also find downloadable audio tracks to get you moving and grooving at home. Each week presents one new Movement Sequence to explore. Learn more here.
The brand new Art of Aliveness Series presents simple yet compelling ways to weave more creativity throughout your daily life. These weekly prompts and suggestions won’t require more materials or any extra time. Instead, they’re about shifting your awareness, attention, and curiosity toward more meaningful, creative, and connected ways of being each day. Each week presents a new theme to explore through written content, photos, links, and audio files. Learn more here.
Fourteen Morning and Evening Sanctuaries offer simple and delicious ways to begin and end your days through invigorating and nourishing practices. Some Sanctuaries will require basic supplies like pen and paper, while others simply depend on your open heart and mind. The entire series is meant to offer you a beautiful array of mindful rituals to explore and integrate into your life during and after the course. Each week presents two new Sanctuaries delivered through written content, photos, links, and audio files. Learn more here.
The Creative Revolution E-Course is designed to be accessible and doable. This means simple supplies that can be used at your kitchen table, in your bedroom, basement, yard, or magical art-making fort. Many of the exercises require no materials at all.
The following supplies are recommended, but I encourage you to use whatever materials you can easily get your hands on. All the creative exercises can be modified to work with what you have, and you can always add in more materials as you go.
You can find some of my favorite brands at a variety of price points for these materials here.

WHEN WE FREELY GIVE, WE TRULY RECEIVE.
Raised by two YMCA directors, I was brought up with the understanding that giving back to community is an essential part of living and breathing.
As a reflection of this core value, and to further support much-needed arts funding, I am thrilled to donate a percentage of all total revenue generated from the Bloom True E-Course and the Creative Revolution E-Course to a thoughtfully chosen, arts-based organization, event or cause through my Community Giveback Program.
Every six months, a new beneficiary is chosen to receive the funds, and I’m happy to announce our new organization is CHAP (Children’s Healing Art Project), based in my hometown of Portland, OR. CHAP’s innovative and inclusive healing arts programs are provided free of charge to children, teens and families affected by pediatric illness, disability or special need. CHAP provides Oregon’s only in-and-out of hospital interactive healing arts program.
The Creative Revolution E-Course begins on October 2nd, 2017 and runs for seven weeks. You have access to all course material for six months beginning on October 2nd. This is an online course and can be accessed anywhere in the world where high speed internet is available.
The Creative Revolution E-Course is available for $390 USD, including six months of access to all the course content.
*Please note, materials are not included in the price of the course.
I want this course to be accessible to everyone who is interested in exploring their own creative revolution. If financial restrictions are keeping you from participating, I’m happy to offer reduced rate and full scholarships to make this possible. To apply for a Creative Revolution Scholarship, please fill in the form found under “Your Investment.”
Additionally, a percentage of all E-Courses sold will be donated to a thoughtfully chosen, arts-based organization through the Community Giveback Program. Our current beneficiary is CHAP (Children’s Healing Art Project) in Portland, OR.
The following materials are recommended for this course, but I encourage you to use whatever materials are easily accessible for you. All of the creative exercises can be modified to work with what you have, and you can always add in more materials as you go.

Great question! In a nutshell, The Creative Revolution E-Course differs from all my other courses in that it focuses on integrating creativity into your everyday life through accessible, “table top,” mixed media creative exercises, movement, and holistic daily practices. All of my other courses focus mainly on large-scale, acrylic painting in my Brave Intuitive Painting style.
Below you’ll find descriptions and what to expect in each course. If you have other, specific questions, please don’t hesitate to write us at: email@example.com.
This is my original, five-week, online painting course where you’ll find gentle guidance and practical step-by-step support as I demonstrate my entire Brave Intuitive Painting process through the evolution of three, large paintings from start to finish.
If you’re looking for in-depth guidance for large-scale acrylic painting with a focus on letting go, trusting your intuition, and courageously being open to change, this is it!
Brimming with gorgeous, high-definition video demonstrations, unique creative lessons, inspiring prompts, interviews with fellow artists, in-depth Q&A sessions, and enough encouragement and inspiration to last a lifetime, the Bloom True E-Course presents a groundbreaking, transformational approach to painting and living that celebrates intuition, connects body, mind and spirit, and allows unique, expressive paintings to emerge naturally.
This thoughtfully designed course was created to support both first-time painters and professional artists (and everyone else in-between!) as you move through fear, embrace intuition, find your own style and open up to a new world of creative possibilities.
Please note, you’ll need space to make a mess, large surfaces to paint on, and a set of acrylic paints for this course.
The Bloom True E-Course is available to join at anytime for $297. Once you join, it’s yours to enjoy for life.
I created the Studio Diaries as a way of inviting you inside my studio every month to explore specific themes from a variety of perspectives.
Monthly themes include: Staying Inspired, Finding Your Style, Collaboration, Exploring Dynamic Contrast, The Art of Simplicity, Making Peace with Your Inner Critic, How to Finish a Painting, The Power of Play, Creative Business with Heart, and Making it Personal.
The themes are explored through video-based creative exercises (mostly painting), written content, interviews and contributions from other artists, an exclusive Q + A podcast, extensive links and resources, audio tracks, monthly playlists, and more.
Each Diary is available a la carte for just $24, and a Full Year of Studio Diaries is available for $249. Once you purchase a Studio Diary, it’s yours to keep and enjoy for life.
The Painting Sessions is an ongoing, monthly offering where you can watch a painting come to life from start-to-finish.
Each lovingly crafted Painting Session includes a series of professionally shot videos to give you an up-close view of my Brave Intuitive Painting process. From the first brush strokes (or finger swipes as the case may be), through all my radically shifting layers (and dance moves), up to my finishing touches, each Session gives you an intimate and educational glimpse into the creation of a brand new painting.
To give you even more insight into the ‘why’ and ‘how’ behind the process, each video is also accompanied by a voice-over track where I’ll share my honest thoughts, struggles, breakthroughs and favorite new tricks along the way.
You can enjoy The Painting Sessions by becoming a Monthly Member for $18 a month, and enjoy all the Sessions ever created while your membership is active. (When you cancel your membership, you will lose access to The Painting Sessions, much like Netflix and other subscription based businesses). Or, you can purchase Individual Painting Sessions at anytime for $24 and keep them for life.
Yes! The Creative Revolution E-Course is a perfect place to begin your creative art-making adventure. I will gently guide you through all the Creative Exercises, while giving you options, encouragement, and tips along the way. This course is not about finishing masterpieces. Instead, it’s about getting your creative juices flowing, learning about new materials, and weaving more creative action and creative ways of being into your everyday life.
Yes! Even if you have been making art for years, the Creative Revolution E-Course will offer fresh new ways to approach your creative process with an emphasis on letting go, exploration, and play. The course is also designed to invite more creativity into your life outside the studio.
On a personal note, I’ve been painting for over twenty years, and returning to this particular set of creative life practices and exercises has sparked a whole new wave of inspiration that I’ve been missing for years. True story!
This course is for you if …
This course is NOT for you if you are looking for a course on specific painting techniques or guidance around creating finished pieces of art. For more of that flavor of guidance, head on over to my Bloom True E-Course, Studio Diaries, and Painting Sessions.
The Creative Revolution E-Course will begin on October 2nd, 2017. At this time, you’ll be able to access all seven weeks of course material when you log into your account. You can choose to work through the course content with your fellow revolutionaries, week by week, or explore it all at your own pace. You’ll have access to all the course content for six months.
Yes, you will have access to the private Creative Revolution Facebook Community where you can connect with others and share images and reflections based on the exercises and prompts offered in the course. This community space is open to all current Creative Revolution E-Course students (more students will continue to join the group with the next iteration of the course). This community provides a wonderful and inspiring place to connect and share your Creative Revolution experience. It will remain open indefinitely.
There will be three live video calls throughout the course where you’ll be able to ask questions, receive feedback, guidance, and support (and other goodies!). If you miss these calls, you’ll be able to watch the recorded version at a later time. The private Facebook group will also be a wonderful forum for asking questions and getting feedback from your fellow revolutionaries.
For any technical or logistic questions, Flora’s team is available and happy to help you Monday – Friday.
The Creative Revolution E-Course was designed to fit easily into your life without the need for a messy studio space. All the creative exercises can be done right at your kitchen table!
