One of my students, Lori Cash Richards, shared about her experience taking my workshop "The Artist's Way with an Expressive Art Flair" in her new book "Letting the Upside In." She shares:
"I participated in a workshop recently based on the book “The Artist’s Way”. It was written by another one of my heroes, Julia Cameron. I have not done any art in many years aside from my collages. Yet when Helen Bradley, my inspiring instructor, put materials in front of me, I created something. I set aside any fear that came up and focused instead on what she placed before me. My curiosity about what might get created carried me right on through to the other side.
Helen taught me how to create what wanted to come into form by asking questions of my art like, “What do you need from me?” “How can I serve You?” Then once what ever wanted to be created came into form, Helen taught me to ask it, “Who are You?” and “What message do you have to share with me?” The possibility had never occurred to me before—to ask my art what it needed from me, how I could serve it. I wonder if that’s what the universe does."
