In each Archetype we encounter on the quest, we embody, paint, write and learn
You are encouraged to Teach during the training as soon as you feel ready and are called. Yes, you can earn while you learn!
We are super excited to share with you the fullest and most comprehensive intuitive painting teacher training on the planet! You will create 5 major archetypal paintings as a body of work through the context of a chosen vision quest for 9 months in 2020. We begin with the heart of your Legendary Self, then move around the alchemical compass to each Archetype.
Color of Woman is a Quest. You are searching for YOUR own unique content. All of the work we do together is approached from within the context that you are on your own personal quest, as well as the quest to become an Intentional Creativity Teacher.
This dynamic duo causes transformation so life altering that we need a VERY clear container - hence the compass and archetypes. The intensity of the structure creates the freedom for you to explore...
During the training we will be journeying through five terrains, moving around a medicine wheel we call The Alchemical Compass. It is alchemical because so much of who we are is being transformed, integrated and catalyzed (lit on fire). As we journey into each terrain, we will explore material specific to that place, which prepares us for the next part of the path.
All the while you are building the body of work required for Certification in painting, writing and actions that open your future.
If you feel you have a sacred assignment waiting to be brought forth, the training provides the container in which you define, articulate and communicate your soul work. We are dedicated to giving you the tools to bring creativity to life in your practice and path. ~ Shiloh Sophia
Connect with your Identity! The Archetype which is in the heart of the compass, is your Legendary Self, your internal storyteller and image maker. The story of your life informs all of her choices, so we start with HER and she begins to re-organize your universe. Yes, she is where the warning label comes in!
Next we move to to Muse (North), Artist (East), Alchemist (South) and Visionary (West). By the end of the training you arrive back at the heart of your story, the Center. This is the place where you become a Teacher if you choose and receive your invitation to the Guild of Intentional Creativity.
Featured here is Shiloh Sophia's Legend Painting from our 2017 Cosmic Cowgirls Course, the Oracle and Ally.
These paintings are from a 2019 Graduate who gave herself Color of Woman as a present for her 60th birthday! Each is one of the 5 Archetypal paintings you will create with your own flavor and style during the training. Get ready for BIG strokes and BOLD color!

It's important to know that you do not have to be an experienced painter, most of our students are not. Many who were professional college trained artists say they learned more about painting from Shiloh Sophia, a rogue artist, than they did in school! WHA??? You can also find shares from our graduates here.
