INSPIRE. CREATE. INNOVATE.
Art is healing to your mental, physical, and spiritual self! Creating art forces you to forge a connection between your mind and your body. Art-making accesses both mind and body to promote healing within. Art instruction and creation is instrumental for any age as it encourages the development and use of motor skills, language skills, social skills, decision-making, risk-taking, and inventiveness. The arts provide challenges for learners at all levels. Art education connects oneself with their own culture as well as with the wider world.

Join The Muse and SoulShine Studios for a “triptych transformation” designed to ‘create clarity‘. A 30 minute meditation will provide internal focus and harness your inner strength and power to transform this energy into a self reflective and evocative body of art.
Creating Clarity is offered as a 3 Part Series either at The Muse Art Studio or on location. Each session inside the studio or on location will begin with a mindful 30 minute meditation that will focus and harness your inner strength and power. We will then transform this energy into a self-reflective and evocative body of art!
In the first session, you will focus on your individual power. You will give space and time to your boundless potential. In the second class, you will work toward your second power circle, setting loving intention for family and friends, and creating a second piece representing this relationship. Finally the third class is about the connectedness of all things, and this session will unite all of our collective energy. The art pieces we design will be stand alone or can be displayed as an installation where you will be reminded of this positive force, in energy and intention, that you set when you created them.
As this series is designed to inspire and ignite your internal energy we encourage all participants to join with an open heart and open mind as embark on this journey of creating clarity!
