The Art of Facilitating

The Art of Facilitating brings process painting into a whole new dimension.

It’s exciting, demanding – and also humbling.

If you try to rely on concepts or techniques that have worked for you before,

it’s going to fall flat –

Because this is not a subject to be learned;

It’s a way of being.

~ Stewart Cubley

The Art of Facilitating brings the principles of process painting into practice. For those choosing to facilitate process painting, this course will provide an experiential understanding of each principle by illustrating how they weave together in the interplay of painting and facilitating. The Art of Facilitating is also relevant if you're not necessarily planning on guiding others in this practice–it's an exploration of the deepest streams of the creative process revealed through viewing others experience when painting for process.
