The Vedic Art Foundation Workshop

October 25, 2022 @ 9:30 am - October 30, 2022 @ 5:30 pm BST



In the Foundation course students are introduced to the 17 Principles, exercises and general approach of Vedic Art. The course runs for a minimum six days and 30 hours of theory and practice. No previous experience is required.

This is not a therapy or to teach you to paint this is a personal development to explore your inner compass, to free yourself to live life fully

There are many ways to create self expression and free yourself from the continuous conflicts, conditioning and domestication of society, To start using acrylics and pastels these tools can assist you in your writing, poetry, sewing, theatre, song whatever vibration of expression makes your heart sing.

Vedic Art – seventeen principles that guide you to create your life and art from your heart.

The seventeen principles are a map that activates your creative life force thorugh practical and meditative tasks. Vedic art calls forth your creativity from deep down in your subconscious with the result that you become more confident abour yourself and your capabilities. Vedia is neither a religion or a philosophical tendencey, but rather combines life and art. The first results are manifested in your painting, then in your life and finally in society.

Vedic Art is for everyone, and is an invitation to expand your creativity whether you have artistic skills or not. Using painting and drawing to awaken the intuition within. There is no right or wrong in this workshop; the focus in on the creative process Students at all levels work side by side with the underlying idea that comments are not made about each other’s work. This creates a safe non-judgemental environment. Together creating a peaceful atmosphere where our creativity flourishes, our hearts open, and above all we have fun!

Vedic Art is shared through an oral tradition given from teacher to student. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the well known guru and teacher of meditation received these teachings from his guru Swani Brahmananda Saraswati (Guru Dev). In the sixties Swedish artist Curt Kallman studied with Maharishi. Quietly, Maharishi tested Curt, and after seven years of testing, he decided to share with Curt the teachings of Vedic Art. For the next fourteen years Curt Kallman integrated these teachings into his art and life. Then in 1988 he started to share these teachings in Scandinavia. 

These are Curt Kallman’s own words about Vedic Art:

“Vedic Art does not teach anyone how to pain. No – Vedic Art is a way to remember how to pain. And not only to remember how art can be created. From the very beginning when we hear about the seventeen Vedic Principles of Art, we begin to remember the whole story of life. From where we come, and where we are going. Vedic Art contains a navigation map. Use the compass You have in Your brain and find the way to the chamber of peace in Your heart. Then – when You dip Your brush in light, space and bliss, eternity will be pictured. When you enter into Your work of art – in Yourself referral dialogue – You will find the code of how life can be lived and how a piece of art can open doors in heaven and on earth.”
