2019 Visionary Art Intensive @ Omega Institute
with Alex Grey and Allyson Grey
Through illustrated talks, vision practices, and group interaction, we empower the process of bringing our heart’s iconography to outer form and examine the worldwide visionary art movement.

Using guided imagery, meditation, shamanic ascent, and love model chakra drawings of body and soul, we open the doors of the imagination to the theater of revelation. Utilizing basic materials such as graphite, colored pencils, pastels, and watercolors, we commit mental pictures to paper and discuss the aesthetic dimension of our mystical experiences.

Learn how to draw the face and figure.

Explore art as a spiritual path and art as a career, address technical concerns, and define your creative goals. Re-enter the charged vortex where we will empower each other toward breakthroughs in our artwork.

Things to Bring:

  • Pencils and pens for drawing – 2B, 3B, HB
  • Pencil sharpener
  • Drawing/watercolor pad with heavy paper – 11” x 14”
  • Colored pencils — 20 or more colors
  • Kneadable eraser


  • Watercolor set and brushes
  • Watercolor paper block
  • Images of past work: small portfolio, slides, color xeroxes, etc.


Artists who prefer working in acrylic, pastels, oil pastels, or would like to bring small canvases or painting boards are welcome to bring those materials and should ALSO bring sketch materials listed.
