Why Art?

In an increasingly complex, global, and highly interdependent world, it is crucial to have creative, and non-technical personal and group qualities.

Most of our educational experiences have been designed to cultivate the verbal, rational, on-time left hemisphere, while half of the brain of every student is virtually neglected. 

Whole-brain thinking is the need of the hour and provides one with a strategic roadmap for creativity, problem solving, innovation and transformation. Right-brain imagination, artistry and intuition, along with left-brain logic and planning allows for the wholesome growth of a person and therefore a company.

Our art-based trainings are designed to help executives develop this ability.

What Do We Mean by Art-exercises?

The art exercises we design and moderate, work towards effecting shifts in perception, and help people break out of traditional mindsets and reframe their world-view and their own identity. 

Participants in our workshops are encouraged to use various forms of the visual arts including drawing, painting, and sculpture.

The Process of Creating Art

Embrace the unknown and ambiguous

#1
Allows one to embrace the unknown and ambiguous. It helps open one`s mind towards finding relationships between unrelated ideas and events; and identify and use multiple creative-thinking techniques to generate ideas.

Reliant on own experiences and judgment

#2
Makes one reliant on own experiences and judgment. In art, the lack of a specific expected result, forces one to maneuver around the uncertainty, and therefore tune into one`s own senses and develop confidence in one`s instincts.

Gives the satisfaction
of a job well-done

#3
Gives the satisfaction of a job well-done. In sync with Maslow`s Hierarchy Needs Law, the joy of struggling with and finally creating an artwork is beyond comparison. As a by-product, art also teaches one how to enjoy the journey, not just the destination.

Think about
and demonstrate
resourceful and independent
behaviors

#4
Artists are generally forced to work within constraints. The art exercises teach executives to think about and demonstrate resourceful and independent behaviors in any and especially situations.

Spontaneous
and natural

#5
Allows one to be spontaneous and natural, true to one self, rather than being how others want. The art-making process is a great tool to help recognize when and how creativity is stifled and be able to prevent this.

Enhanced
observation

#6
Allows enhanced observation, that is, more seeing and, relatively speaking, less looking, is an inevitable by-product of practicing the visual arts.

In the area of coaching as well, the shift in perception after the creation of a work of art: creates trust, camaraderie, and a space for deep conversation. Needless to say, creating art is a highly intense, engaging, yet relaxing way to introspect. 

A shared art experience enhances one`s sense of belonging and enriches conversation.
