Mindfullness Art Parties are another way to get you to notice the inner workings of your minds via painting. This is the premier art class/party at Art On The Run. While we do teach others, the company was created with this party as it’s first and main purpose.
The idea behind a Mindful art party is to give people another vessel in which they can observe and draw awareness to the workings of their own mind. We begin and end the parties with a quiet meditation and only positive driven music that we choose with some incorporation of suggested positive music from the guests. You are free to byob but we strongly suggest non-alcholic drinks so that you may be able to be more introspective. Magnolia will guide everyone through the session with a teaching methodology that supports you noticing your own thoughts and giving you another place in the world where you can feel free to re-charge and leave the session with a better handle on taking your role in your own life as well as empower you to create. If you aid in the creation of your reality by what you think than everything you do is a reflection of that, including what you paint on a blank canvas.
“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”― Rumi
“Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone’s face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come.”- Henri Nouwen
“I say imagination creates reality, and if this premise is true then imagination fulfills itself in what your life becomes. Although I have changed the words, what I am saying is not new. Scripture says it in this manner: “Whatsoever you desire, believe you have received it and you will.” This statement goes back two thousand years, yet even before that Jeremiah tells of the same principle in his story of the potter and his clay.
But until imagination becomes a part of your normal, natural currency of thought, you will not act consciously. Like breathing, this awareness must become so much a part of you that you will not turn to the left or the right to praise or blame anyone. When you know this presence it will not matter if you started life behind the eight-ball, or in a palace; as a poor, or a rich child; you will realize that life is always externalizing what you are imagining.
Lacking the knowledge of this principle, you can reproduce your environment – be it pleasant or unpleasant – forever and ever, as you feed your imagination on what your senses dictate. But knowing this principle, you can ignore the present, and untethered by the so-called facts of life, you can imagine the present as you desire it to be and feed upon your desire, rather than its omission.”– Neville Goddard
“The secret to doing anything is believing that you can do it. Anything that you believe you can do strong enough, you can do. Anything. As long as you believe.”

All transformation begins with an intense, burning desire to be transformed. The first step in the ‘renewing of the mind’ is desire. You must want to be different [and intend to be] before you can begin to change yourself. Then you must make your future dream a present fact. You do this by assuming the feeling of your wish fulfilled. By desiring to be other than what you are, you can create an ideal of the person you want to be and assume that you are already that person. If this assumption is persisted in until it becomes your dominant feeling, the attainment of your ideal is inevitable.- Neville Goddard
“All you need to paint is a few tools, a little instruction, and a vision in your mind.”
― Bob Ross
Change your conception of yourself and you will automatically change the world in which you live. Do not try to change people; they are only messengers telling you who you are. Revalue yourself and they will confirm the change.- Neville Goddard
