REAL TIME LIVE

A Supportive Place to Practice + Stay Inspired

FAQ

Are you ready for your most creative year yet?

Real Time Live is the perfect place to gather, create, ask questions, and get moment-to-moment support, accountability, and creative inspiration.

During our two-hour, live gatherings, I’ll offer an opening meditation, some simple movement, painting tips, personal reflections, answers to your questions, and as much creative guidance and inspiration as I can pack into our time together.

Real Time Live will take place on the 1st or 2nd Saturday of every month, at various times to account for different time zones (see dates + times below). If you miss the live session, all the recorded gatherings will be available with lifetime access, so you can watch them whenever you have time. Easy!

In addition to our live gatherings, you’ll also receive access to a Treasure Box of bonus goodies each month to keep you inspired throughout the year. Each Treasure Box will include things like music playlists, artist interviews, mini art lessons, heart-to-heart videos, monthly “art challenges,” links to my favorite podcasts, downloadable art, and more (see the specific goodies included in each Volume below).

Every month will be like opening a surprise gift of fresh inspiration — your creative fuel for the whole year!

“Loved the live element and so glad I made it a priority to show up, not just sign up. It’s real, it’s community, and a whole new vibe! Energizing and inspiring, thank you for inviting us all in to share!”

– Joelle B.

Why Real Time Live? Why Now?

After creating two years of monthly offerings through my Studio Diaries and Painting Sessions programs, I took the last year to really sit with what and how I wanted to share with you.

What became increasingly clear is how much I love authentic, unscripted, in-the-moment connection. This is the same reason I love Brave Intuitive Painting so much. There’s a depth and realness to the spontaneity of intuitive art making that you just can’t get with a mapped out plan.

The idea of being LIVE with you feels like stepping out onto an exciting edge of what is now possible, and I looooove that live technology is finally here to support us in this adventure!

I’m also excited to have a cozy community to share all my favorite bits of inspiration I collect throughout each month to keep you inspired throughout the year.

Sound like your cup of creative tea? I can’t wait to share it all with you!

“LOVED LOVED LOVED this whole session – so happy I signed up for this treasure!”

“Loved the live painting session! Originally thought I would just watch but I didn’t, I pulled a new canvas picked out some paints and stepped out of my comfort zone! It was awesome and helped me understand the process better… Thank you for being so vulnerable and for sharing!!! “

Yes! You will be able to ask me questions live during every Real Time Hangout, or you can submit your questions in advance by emailing teamlove@florabowley.com

How long do I have access to Real Time Live gatherings after they happen?

Once you are signed up for a Real Time Live gathering, it’s yours to keep! Join us live or watch the replay later at your convenience. You will just need to login to your account to access all of your purchased courses.

The courses are not downloadable, and you will need a strong wifi connection to watch the videos.

Do I need any special materials to participate?

I will most often be painting with acrylic paints on canvas and paper, but you are welcome to work on any creative project your heart desires. If I plan to use other materials, I will let you know in an email prior to our time together.

Will there be an online community for Real Time Live?

But, of course! There will be a private facebook group for all enrolled students in Real Time Live to share their work, process, questions, and inspirations.

I’ve never participated in an online learning program before. How does it work? Do I need to be at my computer at a certain time?

The Real Time Live gatherings will happen at a certain time every month. While we’d love for you to join us at that time to get the most out of the experience, you will have lifetime access to the replays of every gathering, so you can watch them again and again, any time you like.

How much time will I need to participate?

Each live gathering will be around two hours long. It’s recommended to set aside at least that amount of time in your schedule, or more if you’d like to continue working after the session has ended. Each Volume will also include bonuses and gifts which you can explore at any time. You will have lifetime access to everything.

What if I have issues playing back the videos?

If you’re having trouble viewing Real Time Live videos (or any videos on the site):

  • Try turning off HD.
  • Confirm that your internet connection is strong and allow the videos to fully load before playing.
  • Check what version of browser and operating system you’re using: http://www.thismachine.info and try to update to the newest version that your hardware can support. Also, some browsers may not support the Vimeo Player (Older versions of Firefox and Internet-Explorer seem to be problematic). We’ve found Chrome and Safari to be the most stable.
  • Full-screen: Click on the four, tiny arrows next to the Vimeo logo to watch the video in full screen. You can use the escape button to return to the post.
  • iPads & tablets: You may need to install the free Vimeo App.
  • Lastly, sometimes a quick restart of your computer can solve many problems.

If problems persist, please send us an email at: teamlove@florabowley.com, we’ll get back to you asap. Thanks!

What if I have issues with the videos not showing up properly on my phone, tablet or desktop?

The site was designed from the ground up to be viewable on a wide range of devices. This includes desktops, phones and tablets. However, there are some limitations.

If you are seeing an issue with the way anything is showing up on your mobile device, desktop or tablet, or if something just doesn’t seem quite right, then please send an email directly to the awesome team at 7/Apps (support@7apps.com). Emails to them should be specifically about the site not about working on your device. But before you reach out to them, please check what version of browser  (Click here to find out) and what operating system you’re using (you’ll need to tell them that in your email), and try to update to the newest version that your hardware can support. If that doesn’t resolve the issue, send them a note.

Still stuck? Please send us an email at: teamlove@florabowley.com, we’ll get back to you ASAP. Thanks.

Do I need a high-speed internet connection to participate?

Yes! You will need access to a high-speed internet connection to participate in Real Time Live. All the videos are live-streamed and not downloadable.
