After 12 tribes and 3 years, BIG is no longer being offered as a live online workshop.

Instead, BIG has gone through an evolution and is now a self guided FEARLESS® Painting Adventure that you can do at your own pace--on your own time!

All videos and supportive content are now condensed into seven downloadable PDFs that you can work through week-by-week at your own pace and come back to again and again!

BIG is a six week self guided workshop where you will not only paint BIG--but through the FEARLESS® Painting Process you will explore ways that you can live from your own personal BIGness!  Through detailed instructional videos and supportive content, Connie Hozvicka guides you on a FEARLESS® Painting Adventure where the focus is purely on the process and self realization and little on the painting itself.

Though BIG is not for everyone!  To fully reap the amazing, transformative benefits of BIG you must be committed to seeing the FEARLESS® Painting Process through.   It is definitely an Adventure--filled with joys, challenges, and loads of surprises! During the six weeks of BIG you will:

  • Learn the basic elements of FEARLESS® Painting.
  • Examine your relationship with your fear gremlin (inner critic) and begin adopting valuable tools to help you embrace and rise above your fears--both creatively and personally.
  • Strengthen your intuition.
  • Grow confidant as an Artist--no matter what your skill level, background, or abilities may be.
  • Paint BIG and dream BIG within a safe and supported tribe of kindred souls on Facebook.
  • Discover the benefits of embracing our mistakes and surrendering to what is.
  • Explore pioneering women Artists of the past that have painted BIG and have paved the way for women Artists today to paint BIG, dream BIG, and live BIG!
  • Expand your creativity by focusing on the FEARLESS® Painting Process instead of the product itself.

What FEARLESS® Painters Say About BIG...


When I signed up to do BIG I thought I would learn to paint large. I thought I would push myself to get bigger..on paper. I think about that now and all of the worries I had...where will I do it? How much paint am I going to need? Where am I going to put these when I am done?  All of these worries had their place in time, but they seem so silly now. These turned into "what are you saying painting?" "what do you need?""what do you want me to do?" and "boy oh boy am I a crank if I don't paint!"

It turned into a daily connection with my creative spirit.... challenging myself to just get in there and DO it...to keep my commitment to my process. During this time I have been taking a few other classes...but have not fully committed to any other...BIG has been my focus because it has truly been the MOST important.

FEARLESS® painting taught me to be brave. To take steps for myself. To stand for my truth. During the workshop, I accomplished a lot of things I never dared to do before, such as filming me creating and sharing it with the entire world on YouTube ; or selling my art ; or even the simple fact of attending a workshop in real life with an artist I admire.

Finding Connie, BIG and The Tribe has created a tidal shift in that kind of thinking. I’ve started letting go of boundaries that suggest my art must meet some standard set by somebody else and I’m learning instead to create things that please ME. I’m learning to play and experiment and forget about “wasting” materials or making a mess. I’m learning that art is a way of exploring what’s going on in my head and my heart and getting those thoughts out into the open as a way of releasing the “junky-junk”. 
~Kelley from DragonflyReflections.wordpress.com


Connie has a way of taking those simplest of things, like painting shapes and colors, and making them not only easy but profound as well. Her seemingly boundless energy, passion, and enthusiasm get you so fired up for even the easiest-sounding exercise that you can’t wait to get started! Pretty soon, you’re painting! YOU ARE PAINTING! And painting fearlessly! It’s nothing short of a miracle for me, and I find myself laughing almost every time I pick up a brush because I wonder what in the world I was so afraid of. 
~Paula from PaulaRaeMoritz.blogspot.com


I was able to stretch way out of my comfort zone and paint on really BIG pieces of paper (thank you very much Ms. Connie). And by doing that I was gifted with a new way of seeing me. I was given permission to create on a bigger canvas, to create an even bigger life. I learned to embrace a different perspective and a new lens through which to view myself. And even better, a chance to actually redefine what it means to be FEARLESS®. 
~Indigo from Expressive-Souls.blogspot.com


FEARLESS® Painting is so much more than learning how or what to paint, painting big or small, or even painting at all. It is a doorway into a way of living that embraces play, exploration, deep contemplation, and moving with and through obstacles.  Being able to be fearless on the page – painting something even when it seems “wrong”, dancing with the gremlins instead of running away – translates into fascinating thoughts even when the paints are put away.
~Lisa from LifeUnity.com


Honestly, I’ve taken so many workshops this past year since I started art’ing, and BIG has been the only one I’ve stuck with until the end and I’ve gotten so much out of it, personally. It’s made me look at who I am, as a person, as an artist .. not just the finished product and I’m so glad you’re continuing the series!! 
~Deina from GentleSoulArts.com

FEARLESS® painting is like a big mirror where I was able to get a glimpse of the real person standing on the other side. I was introduced the beauty, the vulnerability, the ugliness, the fear, the love, the joy, the wounded child, and the powerful, kick ass warrior. It has put me in touch with all of these sacred parts and allowed me to celebrate being this deep and intricate being.  By putting paintbrush to paper I was able to connect with my inner voice, to burn through old wounds, and to express my emotions in a safe way. It’s taught me to trust myself and to trust the Universe and it’s allowed me the joy and freedom to express my creativity.

Connie is totally committed to this thing, and her vision and enthusiasm are what makes it work, what makes it different.  The supportive and tight-knit community formed of all kinds of women from all over the world is the other half of what makes this work. The love and support exuded by this Tribe are crucial to our success. The bond that these woman form is just amazing! I felt completely free to say anything, to paint anything and share it with our Tribe, knowing that no one would judge or condemn me, and that there would be only loving discussion.  Many of us, weeks now after our session has ended, still consider each other true friends. We still lend our love and support to each other.

During “BIG”, Connie explained her fearless and intuitive painting approach, a concept new to me. I came to understand that she was speaking of more than painting.  This was a lifestyle, a mind set. It touched me deeply and I wanted more of it. I’d found home. Paintings began pouring out of me. They came quickly and without thought of a “finished product".  I could do this for no other reason than the joy and depth it brought to my life. Freedom!
~Tracie from MyBloomingLife.blogspot.com


Connie has an uncanny, almost spooky knack for getting in my head. She has a way of gazing intently through the video camera, knowing exactly the right moment to point her finger and say:“Yes, this means YOU.” She'll do it gently and with love, at * just * the moment when I am about to wriggle out of trying something new or scary or hard or challenging.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What supplies do I need for BIG?  BIG is all about the process and very little about the painting and because of this I prefer you put little focus on having the "proper" supplies--except when it comes to having BIG paper--yes, it's important that you work BIG!  For supplies..this is what you will need:

  • Large vellum bristol.  The vellum bristol I use is 23" x 35" and I purchase it through Kelly Paper Company pretty dang cheap!  If you are struggling finding large vellum bristol--poster board will work perfectly as well but could be a bit pricey.  For the duration of BIG you will need approximately 25 pieces.
  • Tempera/ Acrylic/ Craft Paints.  I highly encourage my FEARLESS® Painters to use cheaper paints so they won't feel "guilty" when they start busting out BIG mama paintings!  The cheapest paints that work decent are Tempera paints (also known as poster paints or kid paints).  Tempera paints are cheap and come in lots of fun colors.  If you wish to pump up your FEARLESS® Painting Practice just a bit more--than I highly suggest purchasing Liquitex Basics and those little bottles of Craft Paints.  Simply grab the primary and secondary colors of course, plus white and black--and any other colors that call your soul.
  • Paint Brushes.  Since we're painting bigger--you will need bigger brushes!  Robert Simmons Titanium Long Handle Brushes are my absolute favorite brushes--but they are a tad pricey.  I do recommend purchasing a medium to more expensive brush--it will save you the frustration in the end.  Long handles or short is totally up to you.  Pick up the brush and air paint before you purchase it--see if it feels good to you--that's the best way to decide!
  • Packing Tape.  We use this when we go super duper creative juicy BIG!
  • Oil pastels.  Student grade oil pastels will work fine.
  • Sketchbook.  What ever size feels comfortable to you.

I'm worried that I don't have enough space for BIG, any advice?  This is the most common worry I hear all the time--but trust me--you can find space in even the tiniest of places.  GO HERE to see how I paint BIG and how former FEARLESS® Painters have done it as well.

Do I need to be an Artist or have experience painting to benefit from BIG?  Noway!  BIG is NOT about the product--it's all about the process.  Actually FEARLESS® Painters with none to very little experience painting excite the kazoo out of me!  BIG is your opportunity to discover how YOU paint--not a place to copy techniques and skills.  Through BIG you will grow stronger in understanding and believing in your voice--which will become a strong foundation for you to pursue Art  deeper if you wish.

I am an Artist--will I have to change the way I paint to benefit from BIG?  BIG is not about the way you paint--it's about what fuels your painting instead.  It's about listening to our innate wisdom for direction instead of looking for inspiration outside ourselves.  It's about stripping away our habits and beliefs that are getting in the way from us staying completely in the flow with Creative Source.  It's about coming back to the core of what drew you to your Art practice in the first place and discovering the courage inside you to create FEARLESS® from your heart center.  You don't have to change the way you paint to benefit from BIG--but the benefits you receive from BIG might change the way you paint instead!

Can men take BIG?  Men are welcome to purchase the self guided BIG, but the Facebook group is restricted to women only.
