In thinking about the teens and women and mixed-gender groups that come through my art and creativity classes…
I tell them, “your art amazes me” because it does. I am amazed that a blank canvas came to life by their very own hands.
I tell them, “your art moves me” because it does. I’m moved–nearly to joyful tears–knowing the fear and stuckness they felt, and the beautiful courage of paint and blending and opps and ahhs when the canvas is ready to take it’s final bow.
I never say these things because I have to. I say it because I can’t not say it.
I say it because I mean it wholeheartedly… every.time. I see the beauty… every.time.
(and I have to wonder if this is how our Creator sees us too)
And if you’re in the Sacramento, Placer, El Dorado, Yolo counties and want to experience creativity in a way that welcomes wonky and removes the fear factor of ‘art’…then visit my other site Create heART and learn more. I hold public and private classes/workshops, as well as one-on-one creativity coaching sessions. You will begin to see creativity in a whole new way–and see how dedicating as little as 3 hours a month to the process greatly improves and can heal the rough spots in your life.
