Join our creative Expressive Arts community as we take a creative journey of self expression through painting and some dabbling in other creative media, as well as talk about and discuss the Expressive Arts also known as the Process or Intuitive Arts.
What are the Expressive arts about? The EXPRESSIVE ARTS are a painting "process" by which we learn to get back in touch with our "intuitive" side of the brain. All experience levels can join. In our modern, Western, linear-thinking society we have lost touch with our creative centers or the right side of the brain. Rather than concentrating on technique the EXPRESSIVE ARTS focuses on the body, emotions and intuition as a guide for self expression through artistic media. It sounds simple on in writing but staying in the present, not worrying about the future, what other people are thinking about your work and getting caught up in defining ourselves by the past takes a lot of practice and is best done within a safe group of nonjudgmental, compassionate people where safe boundaries of a sacred circle are kept. The Expressive arts are a process where you will tap into creative, healing and therapeutic energies you never knew existed! The Expressive arts are about learning more about who you truly are, finding your authenticity, removing creative blocks, finding your spontaneity or in other words finding your inner, playful child again....and leaving the inner critic behind.
