Paint Your Dreams into Reality
A creativity booster to break out of any life or career rut and into action!
Paint Your Dreams Into Reality is designed for the busy professional who “never has time” for themselves and their creative endeavours. They tend to put others first and usually allows their own ideas, passions and desires get pushed to the back burner and says to self, “It’s ok, I’ll get to that later”.
Sound familiar? It’s not your fault. We’re all busy. We’ve got jobs, families, social lives and a gazillion and one other things going on. You might believe that finding time for creativity and your dreams is considered a luxury. But, that “thing” you’ve backburnered for months, maybe years keeps waking you up at night. Your dream might be something like:
- growing your side hustle into a full time career
- pursuing a creative project
- discovering a passion project to pursue outside of work
- reclaim your creativity or tap into your creativity for the first time
Wherever you are, it’s time to give yourself a break!
Scheduling time for yourself is a keystone to your wellbeing, and it doesn’t need to be earned. Most of us tend to live by everyone’s else’s schedules these days (our kids’, our clients’, etc.) and we no longer follow our own internal compass. The more you do things that you want to do, the more fulfillment and happiness you will get out of work and life.
Imagine creating the time and space for yourself to pursue an idea, get over a creative block, solve an ongoing issue that’s been living inside your head for awhile. Having a creative outlet that gives you the structure to identify your goals and take the necessary action steps to move forward right away.
Why I can help
I’m Kori Burkholder, Creativity and Career Success Coach and artist. Art had always a part of my life until my mid-20’s, when I moved to New York City from North Carolina to pursue my dream job in the music industry. I focused all of my attention on my career aspirations and needless to say my artistic friend took the backseat for many years.
It was after a rough break-up that I really felt it’s absence in my life. As luck would have it, I found an art class called Paint Your Dreams. I loved the idea of painting from intuition rather than using a reference. The class reignited my creativity and literally changed the direction of my life.
Since 2012, I’ve been leading creative workshops all around the world and have witnessed 1000’s of people manifest engagements, weddings, babies, jobs, increased salaries, passion projects launched, the confidence to leave their jobs and start businesses, new homes and dream vacations and more!
I’ve developed a clear process that helps you work through your questions regardless of your obstacles. This works for EVERYONE who’s open to a creative approach to overcome blocks and achieve their goals.

Session 1: Clarifying Your Big Vision & Declaring Your Dream
Without a Big Vision, you’re walking around blind! Together, we build an inspiring and solid Big Vision so you know where you’re going, making it easier to identify opportunities as they arise – ones that you wouldn’t have noticed otherwise and you’re able to take immediate action! With clarity you become more decisive and able to toss out what doesn’t align with your Big Vision. Once there’s clarity, you want to tell others about it, which is the first step towards making it real!
Creative Project: Mixed Media Collaging – In conjuntion with verbally identifying our Big Vision, you will be lead through an experience to build you big vision using mixed media materials. Kori will cover all the basics and teach you how to lay out a mixed media art piece, step-by-step and item-by-item. You’ll learn about common materials and how each media within the piece works and interacts with the others.
Session 2: Getting to the Heart of Your Why
Let’s face it, chasing our ideas and dreams isn’t always peaches and cream. Knowing your Why motivates and gives you purpose, helps you to be even more decisive and can get you through the times of doubt. Learn how to tap into the feeling of what it’s like to be living your ideal life and go to this place anytime the journey doesn’t feel so sweet.
Creative Project: We want this to be a fluid, easy going experience as you’re tuning into your WHY. We will be exploring watercolor on paper and learn about color, papers, brushes, drawing and composition that will set you up beautifully to create your own special work of art.
Session 3: Befriending Your Inner Critics
Inner critics start perking up right about now, it might feel like anxiety, doubts and fears. I’ll show you how to manage and transform Inner Critics into your ally so they’re working with you instead of against you.
Creative Project: Paper Puppets using mixed media. Getting in tune with your Inner Critic can be healing. We explore this versatile playful tool that can invite and delight your heroic, creative self to explore and discover the inner and outer parts of you. We will create your own Paper Puppet to get know them more intimately, find out what they stand for and befriend them as we’re in the process of building our dreams.

We’ve come a long way, baby! We put all of our energy into one group painting to solidify and support each other’s visions. Always a fun celebration and the results are stunning!
