Unleash Your Creative Potential!

Remember back in grade school when there was such a mix of activity and exposure to many forms of art?  What a fun time of play and creativity!

Slowly as we progress through the stages of school or work, we become more static and routine with what we do.  It’s time to allow that inner artist to break free (and if you have already done so~~BRAVO!).

For even just a short amount of time, make an effort every single day to dance to some fun music, letting your body move and shimmy to a favourite playlist/CD or some tunes on the radio.

Take a weekend afternoon to recreate art class~~paint, draw, sculpt, CREATE! Get your hands dirty and enjoy the essence of your imagination.  Don’t worry if there is no exact result in mind or perfect outcome, just let your artistic self express freely!

An art form that I take great indulgence in is writing.  I love how the words play on paper.  The feeling of script caressing the pages of a beautiful notebook and my thoughts running wild to eventually land safely on a page, this for me is truly therapeutic.

Expressing yourself through art is one of the most truly liberating feelings.  It’s like allowing your heart to play on the swings, exhilarating yet secure.  I encourage you to incorporate some form of expressive art everyday or at least once a week take some time out for yourself.  

Have fun again! Let the kid in you emerge and experience the wonderful realm of art as a method of healing and a meditative experience.
