Visual Art Class: The Creative Process
In each of us is a space where creative energy flows. While open and moving it is pure consciousness. It arrives unattached with no expectation, no judgment and no future. It just is. As we notice our process, we begin to alter its flow. As logic, reason and judgment show up, the opening slowly closes.
In this class, we make art while attempting to keep the door open as long as possible. It can be meditative as well as exciting. The work usually releases something and when there is release, new growth and possibilities follow. This artistic practice allows the creative flow to clear space within while setting up a blank slate for whatever might be next.
Usually, we go through a few guided exercises using different art materials and watch what our subconscious delivers. Then we go deeper and create more. At the end, we write and discuss what we notice.
There is no preparation. One is asked to come with nothing but an open mind and heart. We humans innately know what to do in most situations. The more we clear our minds, the more we can hear ourselves.
Class is the second Friday of the month 6 - 9 p.m.*
