Did you know images speak to our subconscious mind much more easily than words. You've heard the saying, a picture is worth a thousand words, right?
Many people are out of practice with hearing the visual language of your own art making, even though creating is a fundamental part of our overall well-being.
"I remember a time when I thought calling myself an artist was just a dream."
"About 20 years ago during a group meditation I saw and felt very clearly myself as an artist. At the time I was doing something very different with my life and I had no idea how this vision would happen. I put it aside and got on with my life. It wasn't until many years later when I was actually working as an artist that I realized the real message. It was how being an artist made me feel. I felt a sense of overwhelming peace and joy in that meditation and that's the real reason I'm an artist now."
"Creating as a daily practice is as important to me now as breathing. Art making is an outlet for feelings buried within and a place where the messages of my soul can appear to guide and comfort me." (Christine Pensa)
Creating art can speak to us more eloquently than words because images are closer to our subconscious than words. You begin with your creative imagination and as you become more comfortable with the power of your soul's voice you learn to discern the messages and bring that wisdom into your daily life.
Creating helps YOU uncover the sweetness & nourishment art making as a soul practice can provide.
Yup, so many of us feel we don't have the time, the peaceful space or the skills to get back into making art. The good news—you didn't need any of that in kindergarten—and you were still able to create with joy and without worrying whether you needed to sell your finger-painting.

My goal is always to take you back to that place of peace, in an atmosphere of fun, with no judgement so YOU can remember the visual language of your heART.
My passion is bringing the joy of mark making to people who have not played with art, ever, or for some time. I love introducing people in my classes to new materials—and—to new ways of exploring painting, drawing, and printing.

“The creative spirit creates with whatever materials are present. With food, with children, with building blocks, with speech, with thoughts, with pigment, with an umbrella, or a wineglass, or a torch. We are not craftsmen only during studio hours. Any more than a man is wise only in his library. Or devout only in church. The material is not the sign of the creative feeling for life: of the warmth and sympathy and reverence which foster being; techniques are not the sign; "art" is not the sign. The sign is the light that dwells within the act, whatever its nature or its medium."
