I don’t know about you, but this summer has felt so far like a bit of a mess. Whether it record heat waves or smoky air that sends you into a coughing fit after stepping outside, things just feel a little bit harder and less light than they usually do for me. So after spending some time thinking about ways to cheer myself up, I remembered that one thing that always helps me when I am down is connecting with Art.  Art has been my touch point my whole life. The thing that makes me feel the most like myself. It’s my safe space. To foster my own connection to art and to give me an opportunit ..read more

Art Class Curator
by Cindy Ingram
9M ago
After my Art and Self podcast conversations, I often say “wow that was my favorite one” and looking back I have a lot of favorites as each conversation is so rich and layered, but this one may be THE favorite. My art discussion about Dance of the Nine Opals by Ithel Colquhuon with Geoffa Fells about art and emotion and neurodiversity and music and how all of those intersect still give me chills when I think about it a month after having this conversation. Geoffa has dissociative identity disorder and works within this system of self to explore these parts of herself as an artist ..read more

In this episode, we have a blast geeking out about art philsophy, the idea of the artist as genius, the artist as a healer, following intuition, experimentation, and much more.

This week I’ve gotten the delightful experience to witness the joy of creation through my 13-year-old daughter. That, plus my musing on the book Rest is Resistance: A Manifesto by Tricia Hersey, have made me think more about the ways in which I am not following my own advice and how I can give myself a deeper permission to create without the burden of capitalism on my shoulders.  Subscribe in Your Favorite Podcast Listening App Links Mentioned Rest is Resistance: A Manifesto by Tricia Hersey (affiliate link) Join the Art Connection Circle Art and Self on Facebook,&nb ..read more

Art Class Curator
by Cindy Ingram
11M ago
Daniel Popper’s Chasm is one of my favorite works of art as there are sooooo many rich, personal connections to be found. I was delighted Dr. Charryse Johnson, therapist and author of Expired Mindsets: Releasing Patterns That No Long Serve You Well (affiliate link), chose it as the artwork to focus on. We talked about a lot in our discussion from how we change and grow as we age, to how we adopted stories from a variety of sources that aren’t really who we are, how we can explore our own inner selves, and how we can  break away from any ‘expired mindsets’ that may be holding us ..read more

In this episode, I talk about how I am working to overcome my perfectionism in my art, writing, and business–taking inspiration from Simone Seol’s Garbage Post Challenge (Joyful Marketing Podcast Episode #160) and Anne Lamott’s “Shitty First Drafts” (in her book Bird by Bird) . Perfectionism stops my creativity in its tracks. In this episode, I discuss how I have taken these messages to heart by taking time to experiment, to play, and to create without any expectations of the outcome.  When we let go of our need to be perfect, we open ourselves up to our authentic selves, and this is ..read more
