SoulStudio Arts ~ Be Who You Are Created To Be

SoulStudio is my way of envisioning the kind of space I create for arts engagement.

Over the past 25 years, my art and my arts gatherings have been ways for me to create beauty and spaces for people to explore themselves. People come to my gatherings to connect with who they are and share creative time with others. They leave shining with an experience of their essence and unique presence in the world.

SoulStudio has been a concept. Now's the time for SoulStudio to be a PLACE!

* * *

The Campaign -- Seed-money to cover the costs of transforming my work as an artist and creative gatherings host into a business with a "bricks-and-mortar" address.

The Place -- A studio in or near an arts-affirmative cosmopolitan area with in- and outdoor space where people individually or in groups expand into their creative work, play, dialogue and reflection.

The Mission -- Bringing people together through community arts to explore, express and activate their essential energy and creative talents for authentic, joyful living and a thriving world community.

Everyone who contributes will have their name on a "brick" on the Canvas of Partners that welcomes visitors to this place that changes lives and creates joy in the community!

For a bit of my story, see below:

SoulStudio Two-Year Plan -- $48,000 will underwrite the two years I need to house and establish my SoulStudio as a self-sustaining arts asset and a place of inspiration and activism in the growing movement of community arts.

Already over the past year here in Longmont, Colorado, I've continued my mission by co-hosting monthly mixed media arts my friend's kitchen and living room.

One recent participant at the Gratitude Vision Box gathering had this to say:

Christina, I appreciated the way you set up the day with just the right amount of structure and flow to allow people to work within a framework, and also be wildly free at the same time. My gratitude box is in a central location here at home so I feel a little surge of gratitude & delight every time I walk by it. Also, it feels lovely to have an externally visible reminder of the creative insides of me. Thanks again for hosting these fabulous events!

~ Emily K.

That is what SoulStudio means to me.
