CREiA::: Creative Attentive Studio for a mindful art practice

Creative Attentive Studio (CREiA) is an online platform where we bring together three different perspectives delivered by three practitioners into the contemporary being and creative process.

It is a 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 in whatever area of our lives; we only need to open the doors of perception
in order 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 to video, performance, painting, sculpture, writing... The initial workshop will start with an introduction and induction in 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 tutorials, thus benefiting from interaction, discussion and feedback.  You will also have the opportunity to have 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
In this workshop, participants have the opportunity to develop an artist’s book related to the theme of the home. Participants learn about small-scale models of art  publishing, and practice the integration of photographic and book art practices.
The workshop is for those already working on an artist’s book or intending to develop one from an existing image collection.

Drawing the Soul, Speaking the heart.
Tutor: Maria Lusitano 

A set of embodied practices including embodied meditations, body exercises and creative work with drawing and collage, leading participants to the space of the heart, a portal enabling a deeper connection to source and the soul. What kind of art, drawings, voice, writing, can be expressed when we tap and embody that space deeply within ourselves? The workshop will also offer a perspective on the soul according to various traditions, and how that can be explored creatively to develop and transform your creative practice.
