transformative arts is a special brand of arts education that is process oriented, affected by how a space is held, allowing the individual engaging with the art materials to find their own wisdom that comes through the act of making. we learned our brand of transformative art from the teachers and students assembled at JFKU in the Berkeley Arts Annex. we're interested in sharing the magic.

What is Transformative Art?
Transformative art is an individual or group expression of the body, mind, soul and spirit as they transition through life. Transformative art connects the creative doer with the inner and outer worlds of the self and the other. It is through this expression and creativity that conscious awareness is opened, leading to deeper wisdom, health and balance.
