Natalie Claire Cole

I am a bohemian soul with an overflowing artistic ambition. Painting has always been a positive outlet to expressing the way I am feeling. I love to inspire and be inspired. I have been very fortunate to travel and live all over the world. Attending Art school in Barcelona, Spain was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I am very passionate about teaching. What I have gained and learned through out the process of inspiring creativity and expression has been invaluable and brought me such joy. I am deeply involved with helping others heal through the power of creativity. Living an authentic life is what matters most to me. Making the best of every moment and having appreciation for all the beauty that life has to offer.

My love and passion for creativity stems within a deep rooted belief and calling, that it is my purpose to inspire the joy and connection, developed through the process of art. My journey as an artist & teacher began over 10 years ago when I had the opportunity to create a therapeutic arts based program for children and youth living in a group home. It taught them the fundamentals of photography using creative assignments to support their skills and express themselves through the photo’s they took. This experience then guided me to attend school in Barcelona, Spain, my focus continued in the therapeutic arts as well as contemporary art. Allowing me to gain the skills and insight into the practice and experience of using the arts as a gateway to my own growth & development. Upon my return I volunteered in the therapeutic arts centre at The Children's Hospital, and became an Early Childhood Educator teaching both Montessori & Reggio Emilia philosophy. Through out my experience I have come to learn and strongly believe in the power of creativity. Learning through a expressive process that allows children and adults to communicate their thoughts & feelings, connecting us with our own inner language, and knowledge, enabling us to discover a wisdom deep inside that will transform our lives and well-being. Art brings out our inner healer, which changes our whole physiology, and our spirit, mind, and body. It has been proven to me that through my own journey and experiences of others “Art and healing have always been one”.

Thanks to Natalie Cole for the fantastic Paint Night!. Her instructions were easy to follow and her painting was matched to our groups skill level! Natalie's calm, easy going demeanour, made us all relax and have fun with our creation! We all gave the evening "A ten out of ten rating!" Thanks again, Natalie.

- Robyn Deborah Junghans -

I had Natalie over to my home to host a team-building paint night with some of my coworkers. She was extremely well-prepared and not only did she provide us a wonderful experience with beautiful product, but she came with all the extra's!... gorgeously planned paint jar centrepieces for the table, good quality paint and products and canvases set up for each individual art station, and wonderfully warm and friendly personality to boot! It was clear that she came with a fine arts background and she was able to teach us proper techniques and processes while keeping the experience casual and fun. I highly recommend Natalie for anyone thinking of hosting their own paint night event! Thank you so much Natalie.
