Expressive Art Workshops

Fun and Challenging Self Work
and Consence Community Power

It feels like being a player in a theatrical story when participating in circles of rhythmic music ...

... and song with dance and creative movement. LA come in many forms such as classes, parties, workshops, community celebrations, games, ceremonies, rituals, discussions, and debates. Group art manifest community energies. LA is the practice of the consciousness needed to identify and direct community energy.

It's about using stories to call attention to how foundational culture embraces ...

... personal choice & responsibility. It is a dynamic process and you will be called to engage in a group experience. Together we 'mine' for the value in the creative materialization of thoughts, words and actions.

LA's pedagogical based exercises keep the barrier to participation low. That said, absorbing paradigm shifts into identity requires focus and discipline and that takes time. Many who participate in LA are in a long term practice of growth and community building through the arts.
