CREATE YOURSELF IN A THERAPEUTIC ARTS' STUDIO
Explore and learn from your dreams
At Arts Studio, I understand the importance of support in life and I believe it is through art and connecting with our unconscious that we can discover our strengths. I am dedicated to creativity as a healing tool. I can provide guidance and appropriate training for growth to people at all levels. It’s my mission to ensure that creativity is a source of fulfillment.
Inspiration and Creativity
Everyone needs mental and physical space to dream, to create, to inspire and to be inspired. At Arts' Studio, this is understood. All artistic expression is encouraged in this therapeutic Arts' Studio where people come and create freely. If you cannot attend in person (are on the other side of the world), send me your dreams via email and we can work across space and time together.
ALL LEVELS IN MANY MEDIUMS
Let go and connect with your creative self
Are you ready to experiment with something new? Have you always wanted to try Pencil Drawing? Read below to learn more and to find something that resonates with you!
Use your dreams to heal
This is my specialism and my approach is to help you interpret your own dreams. You'd need to purchase my book 'Dreaming, Healing And Imaginative Arts Practice' published by Routledge so that you can begin illustrating your dreams. If you prefer, you can send me the dream images via email
We can certainly work together in that way with scrupulous professional confidentiality ensured.
The pencil can be an extension of the hand and soul, let it free to wander on the surface of the page, it will make marks of meaning that surprise you.
Layers and glazing
Oil paint is best applied in layers over time. It is a supreme medium to work in and I love it.
Take Home Some Art
Get your hands dirty with clay work, the ideal way to relax from a busy mind.
Reinterpreting Figures and Memories
Collage is great for non linear narratives. You could choose a theme or a period in your life journey and layer it with texture and colour. A mandala format is particularly healing.
Watercolour is especially suitable for loose beach or land scapes. The key with watercolour work is the paper used, the amount of water and the lightness of touch. Watercolours also work best with a reduced colour scheme.
Sewing and embroidery
Thread in thread out, breathe in breathe out
Sewing can become an expression of who you are. The key is for good quality materials, patterns, and colours that speak to you. Stitching can be as rhythmic as breathing and very relaxing. Discover the beauty of hand work.
Words can become just as evocative as images if your heart is in it. All you need is a thought or a story to give wings to on the page. Create a rhythm and a meter and you'll have a poem or a song. Test it on my keyboard or bring your instrument.
Shaping and making
Dream making in four dimensions
Making forms in space gives a special feeling of empowerment. If you’re tired or uninspired, come and let the materials do the work. This is my specialism and my approach is to help you interpret your own dreams. You'd need to purchase my book 'Dreaming, Healing And Imaginative Arts Practice' so that you can begin illustrating your dreams. If you prefer to send me the images via email, we can certainly work together in that way.
