In this episode we talk about using our Intuition to make things, whether it's art or a LIFE. Over the last centuries the logic and analytical mind has been valued in art (and the culture) far more than the intuition. Intuitive styles of art-making were viewed as "low art," or not art at all. I share a story of how I reclaimed my own connection to intuition through my time as an art educator, and the way that 8 year olds blew my mind open around what it means to be an artist. Most of the time the art isn't the art. The art is YOU.
In this course explore your inner world through drawing. Go at your own pace and savor the material. You’ll have access to activities that re-build the creative trust you had as a child. Remember how to draw without thinking, and to tap back into the style that is uniquely and purely yours. You’ll have links to inspiring stories, workbook prompts to spark creativity, and video demos on a variety of intuitive processes with simple materials.
The HeART School: Art isn't what we MAKE. The Art is YOU. Join to see how making things with others creates more calm, peace and presence in your life. Discover the joy of being embraced by others on your creative adventures!
