for creative expression.

painting, writing, collage, assemblage, voice, sound, meditation and movement. It's open
to individuals and collaborations with many intuitive facilitators.
- Q: How can you teach someone "Process Creativity"?
A: "Process Creativity" is creating with no goal in mind. It is the Un-Art class. When you
do process classes or workshops you are experiencing the energy of Creativity instead of
making a product. All stressors of accomplishing, or being judged and critiqued are
non-existent in a process studio environment.
- Q: Is "Process Creativity" a form of therapy?

A: Expect to be surprised and amazed! You will be surprised by how it feels to relax and create in an
atmosphere that supports your individual experience while reconnecting you to your intuition.
- Q: Is previous art experience helpful or necessary?
A: No, previous art experience is not helpful or necessary. Everyone is a beginner.
- Q: What if I have formal artist training?
A: Creating for process reconnects you with the joy of creating. Oftentimes techniques and skills
keep us in a groove of creating for a product or a result. When we are creating for a product or
result we are creating from our mental processes and not from our intuition. When we create from
our intuitive source spontaneously, we refuel creatively rather than depleting our energy.
