Intuitive art is a process of unconscious creativity, flowing from an inner-sensory-experiential place. Created naturally and fleetingly, it cannot be defined in words while it occurs, since it is self-generated. Intuitive art encourages our inner artist to discard logical, analytical and thinking tools…to try and access the void – the primal, childlike place, where we once drew and experienced the world naturally. To return to the time when we sensed events in their full strength, without divisions separating us from the world. A time when we loved, hated, were angry, hugged, kissed, shouted, and laughed in a transitory, authentic way – unafraid. Intuitive art lets us create like a “stream of consciousness” text …we are free from doubt or a dictated syntax, we feel without analyzing. Intuitive art workshops use the small-group format. Participants attend weekly meetings or a one-time workshop. The artist-facilitator’s role is to build a secure enabling place for everyone, to match each one’s personal ability – to help them create an inner dialogue, with moments of joy, free of everyday worries and thoughts. It’s a splendid tool for recapturing the ability to create, without judging or negative thinking, in every aspect of life. Over the years I’ve learnt that self-expression through art renews people’s capacity to act from confidence and inner knowledge (years before “our adult side” starts constraining and judging). In intuitive art workshops, we let participants have a presence: To listen to voices, music, breathing, to their inner rhythm, and colors To hold a non-verbal dialogue with unconscious levels, and create from a primary place. To access the childlike, joyful place that brims with imagination. To banish self-criticism. To express their selves with authenticity and to lovingly accept all their artwork. We offer workshops in the studio, in the customer’s home or workplace. The atmosphere is congenial and cathartic, with soft background music. While we provide theoretical know-how on artists and art movements, the chief emphasis is on circulating among participants, to sense and talk with them. In this way, all of them can record their life experiences on canvas, with their hands or brush.
A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine. I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.
