After this workshop I was left with a sense of deep nourishment and joy, a transformative experience.

It was a privilege to be a participant in such a well constructed creative opportunity.

How will it be done?

Artistry Evolves relies on action and exploration rather than theory 

 Through dynamic interaction of participants, facilitators and the natural world

By moving stagnant energy in the body using movement and sound. You’re body will smile!

Through spontaneity, co-creation, and the sharing of our individual and collective artistic expressions

By exploring traditional materials and techniques, and exploring the use of available natural materials

There is no such thing as an unconventional Technique


“What I feel that has happened, through opening up a new way of seeing the world and engaging with artistic mediums, is that I have owned the part of myself that really is an artist, and my life feels richer as a result.”

Artistry as a way of life is more than a choice, it is a transformation. Artistry Evolves offers a clear experience of how to grow through your creativity

 After movement and activity, the still-point, the silent source emerges. It is the very source of creativity. Your experience determines how it expresses.
