Using Art to Create Intention

Roots in the Clouds is proud to be a part of Del Ray Artisans Gallery, 2018 Grown Ups Art Camp (GUAC), leading an an interactive and hands on evening of using art to create intention.

Intention boards are a powerful visualization tool that allows us to use our intuition and foster creativity to create a beautiful piece of art that serves as a daily reminder of our intentions. Combining elements of coaching and collage-making, this workshop will use powerful questions and hands-on techniques to help participants explore and identify specific areas around which they would like to create intention. Once identified, participants will be guided through an intuitive process to identify words and images that resonate with them, and then move on to arranging them on the canvas. The class will end with a walk around the room to see everyone’s boards and a wrap-up discussion about the power of using intention setting in our day-to-day or artistic pursuits. All participants will leave the workshop with a finished piece of art.


  • Identifying intentions can help artists create art that better aligns with the artist’s life and purpose.
  • Creating and displaying a visual reminder of our intentions in our workspace has the potential to create greater focus and in turn, more powerful pieces of art based in intention.

Supplies to bring:

All participants will need to bring 3-5 of their favorite magazines and/or catalogues that they’re willing to cut pieces out of since they’ll be pulling words and images from them for their collage.  Suggested magazines/catalogues include, but are not limited to: lifestyle magazines (e.g., Oprah, Real Simple), yoga magazines, travel magazines, fitness magazines, art magazines, cooking magazines, Pottery Barn catalogues, etc.
