Art Murmur

Taught by: Kathy Altman, Lori Saltzman

August 8-14, 2018

11am - 6pm each day

Description

To be human is to be a force of creative possibility.

We have worked with thousands of people who know they are artists, and even more who insist they are not. Our job isn’t to teach creativity, but rather, to open the doors and windows to the ever-present riches inside of all of us. If can you move you can dance, if you can make a shopping list you can write a poem, if you can breathe you can sing - even if it’s off key. If you try on more than one shirt in the morning, or arrange berries on top of your yogurt, you are a visual artist. We are constantly creating one moment at a time, from first breath to last.

In this intensive, we open the book on our lives and take note. Each day we’ll interweave dancing, writing, sketching, tearing, and gluing, sitting silently, all while making a gorgeous mess. In this constant play of expression through different modalities, we find the radiance of our creative presence, rather than a product or perfection. As the gems of our one-of-a-kind style are revealed in the company of others, true intimacy and connection emerge.

And in this time of worldly confusion, such authentic tenderness is a soothing balm for the soul.

There are prerequisites for this program. One must have or bring the following:

  • Readiness to risk sudden moments of brilliance in the presence of others
  • Willingness to tolerate the anxiety of “doing it wrong”
  • An interest in driving off the main highways of habit and enjoying getting lost
  • A suitcase full of loves, losses, and life stories that make us all human, humble and divine
