Create Space Studio Opens in Tempe
May 25, 2016 08:16AM
Create Space Studio, where mindfulness heals the mind and art heals the heart, is a new and unique expressive arts and mindfulness studio located at 2011 East 5th Street, Suite 1, in Tempe. Owner Cheryl Sosnowski is an internationally known artist, teacher and passionate proponent of mindfulness training.
She says, “I am all about helping people create space within themselves to get to know their own minds and explore their emotional landscape. All of the classes are in the abstract, intuitive expressive arts, where the focus is on the process of painting itself and not on a project. This allows each individual the freedom to express themselves with paint in any way that naturally flows through them without fear of making a mistake or doing it the wrong way.
Sosnowski believes that painting is taught as a form of mindfulness meditation, with the students working side-by-side in silence while creativity enhancing music plays in the background. At the end of the workshops there is a time for sharing and witnessing. No feedback or opinions are offered about another’s paintings, which helps create the space for safe and honest sharing and expression.
