Vedic Art is founded by the Swedish artist Curt Kallman, who spent more than 14 years developing this method in the 1970-80's.
The 17 Vedic art principles originates from the 5000 year old ancient Vedas. Same source as Yoga and Ayurveda.
NYC School of Creativity offer Vedic art basic courses, deepening courses and teacher training.
Curt Källman's own words on Vedic Art:
Vedic Art does not teach anyone how to paint. No - Vedic Art is a way to remember how to paint. And not only to remember how art can be created. From the very beginning, when we hear about the seventeen Vedic Principles of Art, we begin to remember the whole story of life. From where we come, and where we are going.
Vedic Art contains a navigation map. Use the compass You have in Your brain and find the way to the chamber of peace in Your heart. Then – when You dip Your brush in light, space and bliss, eternity will be pictured. When you enter into Your work of art - in Your self referral dialogue – You will find the code of how life can be lived and how a piece of art can open doors in heaven and on earth.´
VEDIC ART STUDENTS TESTIMONIALS
I am so grateful that I was introduced to Vedic Art by Ingvild. The Seventeen Principles of Vedic Art changed me as an Artist. I began to see myself as more in control of my decisions and the Principles enabled me to trust my Intuition. As an Artist that is an essential part of creation. By trusting one's Intuition it enables an Artist to create beyond one's expectations. The experience was both enlightening and freeing.

Lillian Gottlieb – Health Coach, New York City
Ingvild Vedic Art workshop embodies the Spirit of play and the play of Spirit. It is a delightful creative workshop experience that integrates the
genius of play, imagination and Spiritual principles. Ingvild teaches with a gentle command, allowing each person to learn at one's own pace and individual creative expression. She shows you where to look but does not tell you what to see or do.
The Vedic Art Principles, which Ingvild is the essence of, open doors where there were only walls.

Anonymous feedback from students in Vedic Art workshop at The Art Student League in New York City
- Great workshop! Vedic Art helped me tapping into my creativity without judgements. Ingvild Waerhaug is a very supportive and inspiring instructor.
- Ingvild Waerhaug is a presenter and gentle teacher. And the method of each of Vedic art principles are the strength of this workshop.
- Very laid back with no expectations. Each student is completely responsible for her creative journey. It was a fantastic course. I really enjoyed
I have been a teacher in the arts and crafts for more than 20 years. Because of this I admit that I demand a lot from other teachers when I participate in their workshop. What I can say is that Ingvild is a wonderful teacher. She is very calm and helps you distress in no time, and she creates a very relaxing and comforting atmosphere. What I really enjoyed about the workshop was the silence and that we did not comment each others work. It simply made me loose my anxiety there and then! I truly recommend this Vedic art workshop to my friends.
Audhild Tinglum, painter and art teacher in Norway
I LOVED it!!!!!.... because there is absolutely no demands, no technique to
learn, no right or wrong way to 'DO' it...
Just allowing oneself to dive within & with the guide line of the vedic art
principles, let whatever needs to express itself straight from the source within
with no interference from the mind whatsoever about the how why or even the
result,...& then it is just FUN to flow with what comes out......& THE results are
amazing, I astonished my self every time. I did not know i could either paint
draw clash lines & colours on scary white sheets! I cannot wait to go to the
Thanks Ingvild! What a treat!
