CREiA::: Creative Attentive Studio for a mindful art practice (online course)



Creative Attentive Studio (CREiA) is an online
learning platform
to nourish and strengthen 
creativity, mindfulness and
body-mind expansion, through various
processes and exercises.

A space where body and mind are one. 

As Joseph Beuys would put it “we are all artists”
or according to Pauline Oliveros
“we are all composers”. 

We are indeed all creative beings,
no matter in which field or area of our lives;
we only need to open the doors of perception
to allow for new ways of seeing and of doing.

Rooting Down Voicing Out.
Tutor: Inês R. Amado 

An inclusive mediated workshop of creativity, where each participant will be encouraged to work in their own field. From drawing to photography, video, performance, writing... an induction into Deep Listening® in order to open the mind and create a basis for inclusive creativity.  We will be focusing on different aspects of engagement, out of which each participant is free and encouraged to address the given subject from their own perspective and area of interest.  You will have the opportunity to present your work collectively and have a group tutorial, thus benefiting from interaction, discussion and feedback. Opportunity for one to one tutorials.

* Listening deeply to oneself is to allow the individual voice within to be heard.
* Listening deeply to others is to allow their voices to resonate in oneself.



A Book Called Home. 
Tutor: paula roush 

The artist’s book and the space of confinement
