The Art of Facilitating brings the principles of process painting into practice. For those choosing to facilitate process painting, this module will provide an experiential understanding of each principle by illustrating how they weave together in the interplay of painting and facilitating. The Art of Facilitating is also relevant if you're not planning on guiding others in this practice–it's an exploration of the deepest streams of the creative process revealed through the unique experience of painting for process.
