creative soul visionary immersion with traci bautista



CREATIVE SOUL VISIONARY immersion is a 3-month online program for creatives who want to develop their artistic voice, experiment with mixed media and define their creative process while focusing on an individual project.

The CSV business track includes an additional month of online training and a virtual retreat, small group mentorship & mastermind. These additional four modules focuses on building a creative business as an artist in alternative ways through selling your art online, product development, teaching, writing and partnerships.

CREATIVE SOUL VISIONARY will encourage you to INFUSE your own style, learn NEW techniques, create UNIQUE artwork and INSPIRE your creative spirit.

Imagine this: you grab a cup of tea as your favorite music plays in the background. There is a fresh canvas on the wall, your art journal open on the table, paint laid out on your palette and instead of standing aimlessly in front of the canvas, you are EXCITED to dive in and paint freely with reckless abandon..fearless of imperfection…YOU LET GO.

You scrape paint across the canvas with an old hotel room key… an extra bbq skewer scratches marks into the thick paint…a few sprays of water..paint drips create a rhythmic pattern…leftover cardboard stamps the perfect pattern and you mix colors with ease to create the perfect hint of chartreuse.

It’s a colorful explosion of brushstrokes, marks and ideas that unfold…you use every bit of paint. YOU KEEP MOVING

You close your eyes and let the paintbrush dance around the canvas without second guessing. 

You’re not worried you’ll make a mistake…because there are NO MISTAKESIt’s the process, it’s the CREATIVE JOURNEY.

You don’t judge yourself, you don’t question, you just FLOW, you make leads to the next, it’s a graceful dance mixed with wild moments of fast movement where you scribble on the canvas with crayons, collage torn paper, and doodle with markers.

You “look with new eyes,” a chopstick and craft foam become a paintbrush…you don’t need expensive tools. You dip your fingers into the paint and they become an extension of your creative soul…

you are FREE. you EXPLORE. you PLAY.

If you start to question…you walk away. Take a break. Go for a run, play with the dog, hangout with the family, make a yummy dinner. RELAX. Then come back the next day refreshed and ready to dive in. You repeat the process. YOUR CREATIVE PROCESS.

Sounds GREAT, right?

This might be in your imagination right now, but I know you can get to this place of courage, trust and exploration. I truly believe YOU CAN EVOLVE as an artist, find your own style and have fun in the process.

I’ve listened to many of my students say, “ I don’t have the time to fit in my art because daily life is so busy.” I’ve also heard you say, “ I get stuck, where do I start? How do I get over my fear of the blank page?” 

In response to these questions, I’ve created a workshop where I teach my CREATIVE PROCESS and guide you to become the ARTIST you long to be. My goal is to help you unfold your own artistic style through inspiring creative prompts, colorful mixed media lessons delivered in LIVE virtual workshops, high-definition videos, downloadable beautiful PDF workbooks, live stream Q & A and a supportive private online community.

This process encourages you to build your creative skills and to “see things differently,” so you shift from “copying” exactly what you watch in videos and classes to CREATING YOUR OWN STYLE. You learn techniques and you begin to REMIX them into your art in new ways.

You start to define your process, DISCOVER YOUR OWN WAY and build your confidence as an artist. YOU FLOURISH.
