A Chat with Expressive Arts Santa Cruz
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Expressive Arts Coaching techniques focus on the process of creation rather than the appearance of what is made. No art experience is necessary, and we are free to use an explorative method of visual arts, movement, music, poetry and more to investigate the obstacles in all aspects of our lives.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
After running a year-long art project, I saw the ways creativity and self care can transform individuals and communities. I combined this interest with my experience as a life coach and Expressive Arts Santa Cruz was born.
What do you love most about your job?
I love when a client with little or no art experience can find moments of joy and realization during a coaching session using creative and art techniques.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
A client once said that I was the only person who had gotten him to exercise his creative and playful side.
