 What is Transformative Art? Transformative Art is a creative process for self-care and personal growth for individuals and communities. It is a holistic practice beneficial for the mind, body, and soul. Through the process of creation one can align with the dynamism and the divinity that is animated in all of life. Transformative Art is akin to Tibetan Sacred Art which symbolically describes levels of awareness. While creating one can intuitively explore the three levels of ART and its process (the outer, the inner, and the secret). The outer being the physical object; the inner being the ritual that occurs during ones art making; and the secret, where through the process of ones creation and through personal reflection on the finished work, the unknown becomes known.

One of the central roles of art is to encourage us to think about the forces that shape our lives. The transformative power of art invites us to reflect on our beliefs about those forces, and to make the shifts in our perception necessary to expand them. Randy Rosenburg (The Missing Peace).

What is YogART Practice?  Created by Ceylan and Lisa of Art 4 All People, YogART is the synthesis of Yoga and Art. Through Yoga ones becomes grounded in ones body and the internal mind chatter diminishes. As one approaches the Transformative Art Making, one embodies that state of being through its manifestation of ones own art. Countless times we have seen people shift from feeling of restlessness and leave the YogART experience with deep and fulfilled sense of meaning. The Art that is made becomes a marker and talisman of their experience.

What do you mean Sacred Space? The studio is a sacred space. Ay Atelier honors the cycles of time and space and the internal experience. In the studios we have created a safe vessel for courage, empowerment, remembrance, play, and reverence within the transformative art experience. An important aspect of our facilitating is to create a safe space and comfortable space for you to do your inner work. The classes are intimate and are set-up for individual as well as group process. An altar is always present, the space is energetically cleared and a cup of warm tea is available for you while you work.

What are the benefits of making art?

  • Nonverbal expression and communication: Art is a nonverbal tool that lets you communicate how you see the world. It gives you a chance to express and release your feelings.
  • Form of relaxation: The act of creating art can simply work as a needed distraction to clear your head of daily life stresses. A temporary retreat or escape from your everyday living. In the act of sketching or painting you experience the sense of a meditative flow, focusing on the enjoyable act of creating art.
  • Increasing Morale: Just as a child has fun creating art so should you. The nature of creating something, experimenting with shapes and color evokes as sense of playfulness. Watching your picture develop into a finished piece will also give you a sense of pride and accomplishment.
  • Improving cognition: Critical thinking is used in decision making; what would you like to paint or draw; how are you going to capture this image or idea; what colors to use, where to place an object in your picture. Your attention span is also strengthened as you focus on your work.
  • Sense of self: Art can help to build a child or teenager’s self esteem, and as an adult it can help renew your self-esteem.
