What is Spontaneous Creativity?
The Studio of Spontaneous Creativity engages us in a process of art making that appears chaotic and perhaps random.
Yet there is a preparedness here allows participants to travel to the unknown and bring forward art that could not have been created in any other way.
The art then becomes part of a process that informs us, where a dialogue emerges between the creator and the created. The art exists now to challenge us. In this space we embrace the challenge and ask ourselves, what is trying to come forward, what is trying to be said? As we learn to let ourselves create our art, traveling to the unknown becomes a familiar process, and we open a pathway to discovering our own interior landscape.
“Art is like any kind of transformation, be it a caterpillar to a butterfly, or a seed cracking from its casing: there is always initial mess and chaos – the unpretty faze. Don’t judge it! Let it grow into its beauty.” - noula diamantopoulos

Noula's Latest Vlog on Youtube
Process, Practice, Progress
At every beginning or start of a new project, we are enamoured with the idea of the big picture, the final outcome. It's as if we want to arrive at the end and we haven't even started yet. In this video I am sharing my thoughts about my own 'stuckness' at that critical beginning time of starting something new with my art. And the lesson that I learn is to focus on the process of engaging wholeheartedly with the practice, and knowing that when we do that, the outcome will always be progress.
