PROCESS ART

Process arts involve a way of being with your creative process and your life that encourages abundant presence, emotional awareness and courage.  You can expect play, group interaction, strengthened intuition, experimentation, new discoveries, break-throughs in stagnant corners, and art that is alive and connected to your story.  The techniques learned shine a light on your engagement with your life and may give you new insights as to how to move through stuck places.  You also may begin to notice differences in your relationships, parenting, health challenges, or even athletic endeavors.  Process arts shift our internal locus of control; and when this compass shifts, everything changes. 

The art making is often on one canvas or surface of your choice throughout the class; other times on a couple surfaces, in an art journal, mask, collage or other art form.  The approach honors our art as a reflecting mirror to us of our life: our fears, strengths, desires, joy, and all other emotions and even sensations in the body.  Each piece of art is directly related to the creator's own life with the focus being a mindful and engaged interaction with the art process.  Process arts access the intuitive, body based intelligence that we all have, offering profound and personal wisdoms.

Workshop Participant

The encouragement to inquire when resistance arrived, to connect to my body, and then to break a rule when a block appeared was very freeing.”  Process orientation helped me approach my canvas bit by bit without worrying about the end/big picture.

Deborah

I would recommend this class to people because talk therapy kinds of things have not been enough for me to fully heal.  As I have aged and live in another culture, I've come to understand that trauma and feelings are also outside the verbal part of the brain.  Just talking about grieving is not enough.  My whole body needs to engage to heal more fully.

Your process painting workshop was so influential in my work as an artist, art therapist, teacher and supervisor!
