It is our gift to you, and we hope it ignites a creative spark and provides you with an entry point into the field of Expressive Arts.
Your “First Step” includes both an audio Guided Meditation and written instructions for a simple and powerful practice we call “In This Moment”.
Let’s start off by answering some of your questions.
The expressive arts consciously invite the power of creativity to change lives, both individually and in community.
Visual art, movement, writing, music, drama, and other creative processes combine and interact to bring about growth, healing, and wellness.
The expressive arts are not limited to one art modality, just as our creativity does not limit itself to a single art form.
We are all creative beings, and our artistic expressions are of value in expanding the possibilities in our lives and increasing our authentic expression. When we are immersed in art-making, we are in a state of relaxation and flow, bringing balance to our lives.
The short answer?
This practice is for EVERYONE, regardless of how you define yourself and whether or not you have any prior experience with the arts. It is much more about creating an arts practice than a product.
Well, you don’t need much time, much space, many materials, or any experience! You don’t need to wait until….. (fill in the blank).
You do need: Intention, desire, structure, and support.
You can start right now
with what you already have.
|It is tempting to think you need “more”, but in truth, whatever you have is enough. A stick to draw in the sand might be all you need “in this moment”.|
