That is what many students say before their first Entura Art class. The beauty of this art form is that anyone can do Entura Art!
Entering a meditative state and communicating with spirit in a manner similar to automatic writing, Entura Art is automatic, fun, free-flowing and uses color. There is little thinking involved. Standard art itself involves left brain for technique, and Entura Art requires no formal technical knowledge. In fact, the beauty of Entura Art is that NO prior art training or experience is necessary.
Relaxation and inquisitiveness is key. You ask a question while in a meditative state and the information is received. It is as if you serve as an antennae and container collecting the information until you sit down to draw it. The information which is in the form of energy then flows from you and comes out on paper. Often with amazing results! Without intending to, people draw animals, places, forms, and people in startling detail. Each element and form that expresses on the paper has a reason for appearing.
In an Entura Art course, exercises are used to assist with relaxation and entering a meditative state; and students write down or discuss their interpretations of artwork completed in class. In a beginner class the artwork is done while either blindfolded or with eyes closed. This assists students with truly getting ‘out of their head’ and removing ‘ego’ while doing the artwork. With practice and trust of the energy that is flowing, a student can eventually progress to removing the blindfold without allowing their mind and intention to get in the way of allowing the information to flow through onto paper unhindered. After you complete the art, the relaxed state continues because it is from interpretation of the image that the information is received.
Recall that the artwork answers a question. The images are often very beautiful and wonderful to view. No matter how many times you see the image, you may see something new in the artwork that you have never seen before. The information is luminous and multidimensional, representative of our spiritual selves. The artwork appears to change over time to continually give more information- whether you are looking at the physical artwork or a digital image of it. One amazed student recently told us “It is as if it takes on a life of its own after it is drawn!” [Read more…] about Let the Intuitive Artist Emerge From Within You!!
