    You do not need to be a Picasso to attend this class.

     We will not be trying to make any ' perfect pictures '.


     While this activity is therapeutic and intended to help

     reduce stress, this is not a place for ' group therapy '.

     You will not be asked to spill your beans at any time !


     We will work alone, in pairs and sometimes as a group,

     though always just listening and keeping company with

     whatever we notice inside ~ as we sense into the body.

     If it's good weather we will work outside !

   Please bring your Playfulness, Curiosity and Kindess and

     best to wear clothes you wouldn't mind getting some paint on. 


         This class will follow on from this spring with new exercises and

      is intended to be of interest and useful to a wide range of people.

      If you are:  a parent, teacher, care worker, health professional or

      anyone working with children  ~ if you are a creative person with

      a piece of writing, song, project or idea you wish to carry forward

      or if you just want to explore your internal landscape a little more. 


           So . . . what is ' Listening through the Body ~ with Art ' ?


      A natural ability or skill we may have lost touch with as adults, though knew

       instinctively, as children. This course will offer people a space to ' play ' in,

       to explore our inner experience and also to deepen our sense of empathy.


       To translate into glaswegian: it's like letting our body drive the bus and

       taking a ' time out ' or having a breather from our life, for a wee while.

       Taking everything we meet inside with a big pinch of salt and listening

       to our belly with more than our ears and a healthy dose of Curiosity

       and Kindness. This is a chance to get more into our hands with some

       playdoh, paint and pastels  ~  without being too precious about it all.


       Sounds like a lot, I know ~ this is also a place to practice the boundaries of

       and attitudes of Self and Peer Support, sharing time and attention equally

       and respectfully while just being with whatever we notice  ~  inside and out. 


       If we are an artist, a writer, musician, dancer or scientist, a doctor, teacher,

       plumber, postman or parent, in fact, whatever our path through life may be,

       we can enrich and deepen our understanding of ourselves . . . and connect

       with the voice of our body, while tapping the creative energy we all need to

       enjoy life more fully and follow our bodily felt sense of ' rightness ' forward
