What is arting good for anyway…? Through the eyes of (happy) people who took part

Over the past year I have been developing and running my online courses.

The #ArtingKickstarter and #Becometheartistyouare challenge.

The first one is aimed at unblocking, finding/exploring and developing your own authentic inspirations. The latter one is an uplevel-ing type of creative challenge that can move you forward with mile strides when you take part in it.

This is what people have been saying about them:

Most people have….

  • reported feeling and becoming more creative in their own lives (apart from arting) and businesses.
  • reported finding their creative calling and pursuing it as opposed to years of blockage.
  • appreciated the space Arting has held for their creativity.
  • learnt to nurture their arting habit/discipline and focus.
  • reported realizing their fuller personal potential through the process of arting and increased confidence and self-awareness.
  • appreciated the coaching “helping hand at hand” that has enabled them to make important discoveries and breakthroughs creatively.

Not bad. Me thinketh.

33 Days to #becometheartistyouare

In May I am running this unique mixture of visual art training and art therapy self-experiential challenge: #becometheartistyouare.

For a month, in twenty-minutes a day (minimum) you will unblock, find, explore and develop your own arting inspirations and learn more about your world, yourself and the things in between in the process.

As well as discover things about yourself you did not know or did not acknowledge fully. You #becometheartistyouare. More of herself.

There is a friendly and safe community in place to share your ahas, questions and observations. Ready to join us? Go here.

I look forward to arting the May away with you!
