THE AWAKENING ARTIST

Reclaim your Artistic Expression & Unleash your Creativity

A 7-Week LIVE Online Course-Workshop for Aspiring and Experienced Creators


With Roseline de Thélin
Innovative Artist and Expressive Arts Teacher


Within all of us is an artist that is just waiting to be born.

In this course you will experience how mindful artistic expression can turn your life from black and white into colour.

You don’t have to be a Picasso or a Mozart. Each and every one of us has a unique creativity that can transform every aspect of our lives: work, personal, and spiritual. Cultivating our creativity is a powerful inspiring way to feel more alive, lit up, curious, playful and ready to embrace change in our life.

So often our days are full and creativity is the first thing to be left out. Day after day our soul looses some of its spark and we end up feeling frustrated as if something essential is missing in our life that we can’t quite pinpoint.

Many of my students come to my workshops because they intuitively know that creative expression could help them break free from limiting aspects of their lives but they do not know how and where to start. I have created this online course to share accessible artistic techniques that will help you reconnect with your creative source of inspiration from home or within your life. 

When our creativity is at a standstill gloom creeps in. Creativity needs oxygen so it can flow and make every thing else thrive. Once activated, your creativity will enhance every aspect of your life. It’s a bit like turning a black and white film into colour. Everything becomes more alive, multi dimensional and enriching. The two hemispheres of your brain are working at full optimization and you become aligned with your creative purpose.

You intuitively know that creativity could help you break free from limiting aspects of your life but you do not know how and where to start.

How do you find and awaken that creative spark?

This course will teach you how to plug it in and switch it on.

Artistic expression in all its forms is the most natural way to connect to the creative source and the artistry of life itself. Regular and mindful art practices that combine different artistic disciplines /multi media art making, embodiment, object arranging and installation, creative writing/ can help you reconnect to your own unique source of inspiration and jump start your creativity. To set free your inner artist you need to let your body feel and move, you hands shape and play, your imagination wander, you words express, your soul be touched and your heart be cracked open. Your natural unique mode of expression will develop organically as you create meaningful art that express your soul's longing. 

"You only need to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves"  Mary Oliver

Artists and creators also need to share inspiration and find support with like-minded creative friends. The group dynamic is an exponential factor for our creativity to be emulated and for our heart to be nourished. Thanks to the Zoom platform we will all be able to meet online live to share our creative process. I will be there to guide you and give you support.

I have created this course because this is exactly what I need to give myself to regenerate my own creativity and balance my life. Again and again I’ve experienced the energising and inspiring benefits of these art practices in my professional life as an innovative artist and in my personal life. Students in my workshops and trainings have found their own creativity expanding beyond their expectations and rippling into their life like a refreshing wind.

Take this opportunity to feed your soul what it longs for and step into this course adventure with me.

How I stepped into my own unique creative journey ...

As a child and teenager my natural passion was to make art, but when it came to making a professional choice, fine arts did not seem like a "serious" option.

At 23 I was just out of university, freshly trained to manage theatres, produce movies or curate museum exhibitions. Despite my personal artistic call, I felt pushed into prioritising achievements and I started my career as a stage manager in Paris’ theatres.

For several years I survived the devouring intensity of my job by spending most of my free time in the art studio creating what my soul was longing to express. I asked myself…
How could I become the creator of the life I was dreaming of?
How could I find the courage to embrace my own artistic journey?
Was I worth such a call?
Did I have the necessary talents to be an artist?

I found support and answers in art therapy. This mindful and therapeutic approach to artistic expression helped me shape-shift my life direction. After a year of art therapy I was awarded an art scholarship and left Paris to make art ... in India! My own unique creative adventure was about to start.

25 years later artistic wonder is still my guide and continues to inspire many more life shifts. I’ve travelled the world and explored a myriad of artistic medium: from painting to sculpture, from hands-on to digital, from visual art to performance art.

As a light artist I became passionate about the mystery of light traveling from the far end of the universe and investigated this subject in my creations.  I based my studio on the magical Mediterranean island of Ibiza where I could fill myself with the amazing light that shines on our seashores and landscapes.

I kept developing new and innovative ways to make my living with my art and re-invent my professional life.

Ten years ago I decided to train as an Art Therapist, Creativity Coach and Expressive Arts Teacher. It was time for me to put my experience into service and inspire others to find their unique creative paths and become the creators of their own lives.

Since then I have facilitated numerous workshops, trainings and individual sessions. I have developed my own style of teaching from many years of experience with the creative process. My passion is to awaken the creative intelligence that resides in each one of us when we playfully and mindfully embrace our natural gift for artistic expression.

Because of my curiosity and need to always explore further the relationships between art and consciousness I have gathered over the last 20 years extensive knowledge and experience in interdisciplinary art, in personal and transpersonal psychology, in Jungian symbols and archetypes, as well as in embodied mindfulness. This has lead me to develop my own multifaceted approach to healing and creativity and enriches my teaching with a mystical and holistic depth.

As an artist Roseline de Thelin is known for her innovative light sculptures and installations, which combine light sculpting and 3D modelling with fibre optic. The subject of Light has been central in her artistic and philosophical inquiry. Her work has been exhibited in Museums, Art Fairs and Art Festivals in London, Paris, Hong Kong, San Diego, Kuala Lumpur, and Ibiza.

"The creative sessions with Roseline helped me to connect with my inner source and my inherent creativity. Not only was I – somewhat to my surprise – able to create meaningful pieces of art, I was able to integrate this source of creativity into my day to day life and work. Highly recommended – not only for artists!!"

Never did I master a painting before, I thought of myself as a "brainy" kind of person. Little did I know I was going to see myself creating art, performing and writing. I am a different man because of attending Roseline’s workshops., more me, more authentic, more honest.

I want this course to be accessible to everyone who is interested to re-connect with their inner artist and reboots their creativity. If financial restrictions are keeping you from participating, get in touch for special rates, exchanges or scholarships. course@roselinedethelin.com

What are the differences between an E-course and a live workshop?

The E-course is designed to help you develop and anchor a creative practice within your own life and from your own home so it can root and grow afterwards.

A live workshop will give you a great creative boost during the days of the workshop, then it will be up to you to maintain a practice once back home.

I have no creative or artistic experience. Is this class for me?

Yes! The Awakening Artist E-course is a perfect place to meet your inner artist and jump-start your creativity. I will guide you through a sequence of creative exercise and art assignments so you learn how to start. 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.

I am already a professional artist. Is this class for me?

Yes! Even if you have been making art for years The Awakening Artist E-course  will offer fresh new ways to connect with your muse, to shape-shift your artistic expression as you will cross-pollinate from different artistic modalities. You will reconnect with your capacity to surrender to the art making process, letting your self be playful and tryout new. The course is also designed to invite more creativity into your life outside the studio.

I have been a professional artist for 25 years and these art practices are helping me to keep my creative process alive and refresh my life.

Can I do the art assignments with my children or with a friend?

Remember that your art practice is an opportunity to meet your inner artist and give it the time, care and privacy it needs.
Having said so, many of the assignments can be great fun with children, the best is to do it first by yourself and then experience it with your child.
Inviting a friend to make art with you is a unique way to share a precious intimate moment. Read the assignment together and watch the videos, take it seriously, follow all the stages and avoid chatting during the experience. When sharing at the end listen to each other in a non-judgemental way, do not comment or give advice, just listen.

Can I do the course if I am traveling?

Creating art while traveling is a wonderful way to make out something with all the input and inspiration we receive. I have done that many times during my travels. You will need to good internet connection to access the course materials and a little more creativity to limit your art materials to traveling size and supplies you can find where you are.

This course is for you if … 

  • You’re craving new creative inspiration in your art making practices.
  • You’re seeking more creative ways of being in your everyday life.
