Today we will have a lively conversaton with artist Carol DuChamp about the Art of Life and the Art of Trekking. She is fellow Arts and Healing artist and currently she is in our Art 4 All People exhibiton, MUSE: The Art of Transformation and Healing at the Institute for Art and Healing at Commonweal in Bolinas. Listen in for the transformation.
A local Bolinas resident, Carol Duchamp began her practice as a painter in 1985 under the watercolor mentorship of artist Jackie Kirk, and began exhibiting her paintings in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1993.
Indeterminacy and chance play a role, as does the element of water. Carol paints on pre-soaked 300-lb Arches watercolor paper. Her process takes place in the unplanned moment. This is both the beauty and the challenge. If the spirit is clear at the time of painting, access to intuitive resources becomes easier. If the mind is cluttered, the level of concentration is diminished and the result put at risk.
Carol is passionate about the healing powers of creativity, and imagination as essential creative principle. She taught Healing Art Transition courses at UC Santa Cruz Extension and enjoys helping others nurture their inner artist. She studied Transformative Arts at JFKU in Berkeley. She is founder and director of Art Trek, a small company that orchestrates travel study art classes to exotic such as France, French Polynesia, Italy, the American Southwest and Bali & Java, Indonesia. Carol is also a writer whose novella Garlic and Roses is nearing completion.

From Zach's website
My journey as an artist began during my childhood in Northern California, where I loved to make constructions on the beach from sand, rocks, and seaweed. Throughout my life, I've created art from and in nature as a personal practice. Since 2004 I've focused on the social and environmental dimensions of my art-- hosting group art-making events and workshops, teaching in public and private schools, training teachers and museum staff, and installing hands-on "Create-With-Nature Zones" in parks, schools, museums, and public spaces. My endeavors are in the tradition of social sculpture, in service to nature and to society. Collaboration with other artists, environmentalists, scientists, educators, and parents is key to my work. I strive to create models and methods for collective creativity; to connect people of all ages with each other and with the natural world; and to inspire joy, spontaneity, and environmental action.
Art 4 All People has a conversation with with Edie Hartshorne, a pioneer in the arts and healing field. Edie is one the featured artists in Art 4 All People's latest group exhibtion MUSE: The Art of Transformation and Healing. Which is three month exhibtion at Commonweal in Bolinas.

COME AND JOIN HOUSE OF PRAYER BIBLE STUDYFOR ALL PEOPLE AS WE WALK THROUGH THE BOOK OF JAMES.STARTING IN CHAPTER 2 OF JAMES ON SATURDAY APRIL THE 18 AT 4 P.M.
James 2:1 My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.
2 For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;
3 And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:
4 Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?
5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
6 But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?
7 Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?
8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:
9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
Bridge to the Soul: The Art of Healing Series.
Art 4 All People welcomes Deborah Koff Chapin to our Art 4 All People Radio Show. We will talk about Art, transfomation, Arts and Healing, and much more. Deborah will also be facilitating a transformative art workshop at our USC exhibtion at the IGM Gallery, Bridge to the Soul: The Art of Healing on January 25th, 2014.
We invite you to this sacred expressive arts experience. To sign up and for more informaiton about Touch Drawing, A Portal to the Soul, go to this link: HERE
Touch Drawing is a simple but profound drawing process. Through the touch of the fingertips, lines are formed on paper that has been placed over a smooth surface of paint. Images emerge with surprising speed, enabling 10-30 drawings to be created in a single session. The freedom of expression allows for a powerful transformational process to occur. Each drawing is an imprint of the body and psyche, and acts as a stepping-stone deeper into the soul. In this all-day workshop, movement, vocalizing, writing and SoulCards are woven into the day, to present a unique approach to multi-modal Expressive Arts. Deborah hold a sacred space with her live music (heartbeat drum, crystal bowls, voice) while you draw. Find out more about Touch Drawing at http://www.touchdrawing.com.
Bio: Deborah Koff-Chapin BFA has been developing Touch Drawing since 1974, teaching at universities, conferences and retreat centers internationally. She is author of Drawing Out Your Soul, The Touch Drawing Facilitator Workbook, educational media and SoulCards 1&2. Deborah is founding director of The Center for Touch Drawing and served on the board of the International Expressive Art Therapy Association.
James 1:1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.
2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
9 Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted:
10 But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.
