EAFI 110 Intermodal Intensive. This core course, which we have come to call Dive-In to Expressive Arts – is just that – a deep dive into intermodal expressive arts and a gift to yourself. The essence of expressive arts is the way it weaves different modalities together – visual art-making, rhythm, movement, poetry, sound, drama, journaling, and more. It is, essentially, a process of remembering something that was likely once natural. Children don’t distinguish between different art forms, but rather move from one to the other, as if they are following an invisible thread of creative expression. How does your painting move? What is the rhythm of that gesture? The voice of that image? How would that movement translate into color? By becoming fluent in intermodal process we deepen our own holistic practice and become attuned to how to work with others.
This program has forever changed my life. It has taken me to new places and opportunities I never thought possible. I have turned an emotionally draining job into a passion that was re-ignited. I have turned from hidden-artist to artist. This is about discovering who you really are.
