Drawing and painting are wonderful ways to quiet the mind. To enjoy art for relaxation and well-being, we might need to make peace with our inner critic and foster a positive attitude towards our creations. In Kristín´s soulful art courses, the main goal is to help you stay connected to your creative spirit through simple exercises and mindful doodling. With Sálarlist/soulful art, we create to enjoy the process and reap the benefits for our soul, rather than focusing on the final product. The aim of Sálarlist, or soulful art, isn't to meet conventional beauty standards but to keep the creative spark alive and experience the positive effects creativity has on your well-being. Learning to befriend your inner critic can help you create with a calm mind and truly enjoy the process, making it both healing and transformative.

Paint for the process

Engaging in the process of painting rather than fixating solely on the end result offers you an opportunity to savor the act of creation at a profound level. By doing so, you release any need to create something practical, a masterpiece, or a tangible product. The sole intention is to immerse yourself in stillness alongside the hues on your canvas or art journal.

This approach signifies that there exists no demand for a grand outcome from your creative endeavors. Yet, what could be more enchanting than fostering tranquility, serenity, harmony, and elation within your own being through the act of artistic expression?

  • I found this course, "Paint for your heart and soul" by "accident" on facebook. The course felt like a gift from heaven, offering simple and fun projects that you can easily incorporate into your daily routine. I discovered that creating a little art every day boosted my creativity and made me more solution-oriented. There's nothing more important than giving yourself time, even if it's just five minutes a day, and this course taught me exactly that

  • It's hard for me to put into words how big a role you have in how I feel today while I create. But today, when I think of something (an image method to try, new colors) it's no problem. No stress about the outcome, no fear of drawing the lines, because it's all about pleasure while creating.
