Ignite your artistic practice with the Life Force Arts Method Wisdom Wheel! The Wheel is a powerful tool for exploring the spiritual and healing energy of art: your own subconscious and soul, your relationships with other people, and your connection with nature and the spiritual, energetic plane.

In each session of this 4 week experiential class, we will create inspired visual artwork through immersing ourselves in the Dynamics, Archetypes, Seasons and other lessons of the LFAM Wheel:

  • Week 1: The Dynamic of Water, Vision, Perception of Spring
  • Week 2: The Dynamic of Earth, Passion, Power of Summer
  • Week 3: The Dynamic of Fire, Compassion, Process of Fall
  • Week 4: The Dynamic of Air, Wisdom, Partnership of Winter

Discover what works for your creative process as you experience receiving inspiration from contemplating colors and images, listening to music, simple body movement and guided shamanic meditation. Any level artist can benefit by learning this unique practice. Be amazed at how easily you can create artwork through this method, even if you have no previous art making experience. Create one or more pieces of art at each class, as you are inspired.
