About ArtBeat

 

'We are all creative beings'

Maya Fiennes

 

Throughout history, people have used pictures, stories, dance and conversation as healing rituals.

ArtBeat, using the expressive arts, provides a safe, caring and accepting environment for people to choose from the following art forms in a fun and supportive way:

Dance and Movement

Visual Arts - drawing, painting, mixed media, crafts, sculpting

Spontaneous play

Imagery

Reflective & Creative Writing

Performance

We use a combination of the art forms above to creatively :

  • Connect to our physical bodies

  • Connect to our emotions

  • Connect to our thoughts

In group classes and workshops, an invitation is offered to use some or all of the above art forms to facilitate a deeper connection to yourself and others. Each class or workshop has a specific theme and intention that we will work with using the various art mediums above. Self expression is encouraged without the need for a specific end product. The aim is not to make professional artwork, it is more about accessing your own unique creativity and the discoveries you make about yourself and others along the way.

'All of us contain a divine, expressive spark, a creative candle intended to light our path and that of our fellows'

Julia Cameron
