Vedic Art consists of Seventeen principles that guide you to create your life and art from your heart. 

No artistic skills needed. All are welcome! 


The origins of Vedic art comes from the 5000 year old Indian Vedas. This knowledge was brought to the west by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who chose the Swedish artist Curt Kallmann to develop and introduce this sacred teachings to the West. Now it is available for the first time in the USA through the Norwegian artist and teacher Ingvild Waerhaug-Baron, a student of Curt´s.

The seventeen principles of Vedic Art are a map that activates your creative life force through practical, meditative and playful activities. Vedic Art is available for everyone, and is beneficial whether or not you have artistic experience. We use painting and drawing to awaken the intuitive creator within. Vedic art calls forth your creativity from deep down in your subconscious. This can help you become more confident about yourself and your potentials. 


There is no right or wrong in this workshop; the focus is on the creative process. Students of all levels work side by side with the common understanding that comments are not made about each other’s work. This creates a safe, non-judgmental environment. Together we make a peaceful atmosphere where our creativity flourishes, our hearts open, and above all we have fun!

Read the full story about how Vedic Art came to Scandinavia, and now to the USA, in the interview with Ingvild Waerhaug from the Magazine **´VISION´** or click the link:

Review: By Johanne Wold: Little by little I let go…soon I am full of paint stains, and time and space disappears and I am immersed in the creative process. I start with a single brush stroke, and before I know it I have a finished painting in front of me. Only when I am done, I see what I have created, and the result surprises me many times. At the end of each day I´m exhausted, but happy. I hang the pictures on the wall at home and feel a warm pleasure of being surrounded by my own creative powers.


The Basic course consists of two weekends. In our upcoming August weekends there are a few options. If you are new to Vedic Art you can take Part 1 the first weekend and Part 2 the next. You may also take part 2 at a later time. If you have already taken Part 1 at a previous weekend, you may take Part 2 at either of the upcoming weekends. In the future we will be offering more advanced classes and teacher training courses.
