Art making is a transformative process

The journey to make art begins with you, the inner part of you. For that which is expressed externally is first conceived from within – from the inner space of you where imagination breathes, waiting to be allowed space to connect externally and make art. To make this kind of art therefore requires transformative methods to awaken your creativity and enable your creative process.

The art we create from our inner landscape becomes a blueprint for our being. This blueprint of art is sung with your voice, discerned with your inner intelligence and made with your creative hands. And this birthing of art becomes part of the evolution of our consciousness. For art has this power.

This is what the Studio of Spontaneous Creativity is all about.
