Contemplative Art is meditative way of art-making that combines creativity and spirituality. The art created from this mindful creative process can serve as a catalyst for healing and spiritual awakening.
Spirited Hand Studio offers a variety of contemplative art programs for all ages with small size groups, and a fully equiped space with tools for art exploration. Drawing wisdom and imagery from a variety of cultures and faith expressions, our programs affirm that the Sacred has no religion, gender or race, but many names, colors, and diverse languages. We are one through our shared humanity.
Come create sacred containers for your own story, by expressing in color, lines, shapes and textures. This creative process of honoring one's life is a practice of gratitude and profound self-love which brings the birth of a new spirituality grounded in awareness and intentional living.
"The artist is one who wants to leave behind a gift."

Art is universal art is for all
We are all artists by design, created to respond to a universal Creation. Everyone has a preferred shape and color, a signature, a style, an unique rhythm, a way of seeing things and a creative self.
Art is a process art is layer by layer
Just like life is a journey, art is a process, and it takes time to unfold. To truly embrace the creative process and express ourselves as creative beings, we need to honor our gifts and accept our limitations. Imperfections and mistakes are part of our learning development. Art happens when we let go of trying to be perfect and simply embrace the present moment.
Art requires practice art is a daily practice
We are all practitioners of life! Our emotions need release, our minds need to create, and our bodies need to move every day. We need to give ourselves permission to make things and leave our mark in the world, by making space and time to be creative. When we create intentionally from the heart without expectations – the world becomes a better place.
Art builds community art is shared knowledge
In art making we can transcend (integrate) language, race, gender, age, culture, and faith, connecting our stories in profound ways.
