It means grabbing the brush and following your body, your senses, a feeling or question, and allowing for something to emerge. It helps us quiet down the inner critic and listen more carefully to our own wisdom. Through this process we can better learn how to practice SELF COMPASSION, PRESENCE, and CONNECTION to ourselves and others. ~~~"Do I have to talk about my art?" Nope! We will have the opportunity for discussion and sharing but this is totally optional. You may wish to use this time to keep to yourself or observe. ~~~~What is the structure of the workshop? I will lead you through a few expressive arts therapy based warmups. These might vary from group to group but generally they will consist of body based warmups and exploration, visualizations, and drawing directives. You will then be guided into some personal art making time. After you finish your paintings we will witness each other's work and process the experience creatively. This will be a safe and supportive environment and I will be there to answer any questions or concerns along the way. ~~~~Philosophy: Everyone is inherently creative and can make art, no matter what age, skill level, or physical ability.
