Life is the canvas of your soul.

"When the artist is alive in any person, whatever his kind of work may be, he becomes an inventive, searching, daring, self-expressive creature. He becomes interesting to other people. He disturbs, upsets, enlightens, and opens ways for better understanding. Where those who are not artists are trying to close the book, he opens it and shows there are still more pages possible." ~Robert Henri, The Art Spirit

I read this quote when I first opened my art center, The Creative Fitness Center, in 1996. I had ZERO art training. It made NO SENSE for me to open an art center...except that I had been struck with the intuitive knowing that connecting art making to life making would liberate me & others so we could create the art that is our life from a place of possibility and enthusiasm.

Today, THIS is my art center and I am thrilled you are here. Read the quote above again and notice which part speaks to you... Peruse my classes below and enroll in the one that calls to you. Can't wait to PAINT with you! ~Whitney Freya

I got so fired up one day thinking about how the world REMEMBERS and celebrates creations, but still cuts funding to the arts, etc. that I created this video below.

YOU are meant to be part of creation...

Welcome to OUR studio! Let's create some change together, shall we?

P.S. My next LIVE EVENT is in GREECE! This is going to be SO magical. We are going to exactly where I filmed the Art Gypsy Greece Watercolor course. Check it out. Space is limited.
