Feedback from former participants:
Prof. Claire Rabin
“Use of painting and other expressive methods has become a major form for human beings. This workshop is designed for an intensive 7 day workshop on the use of expressive methods. It will be run
by Professor and artist Dr. Peter Seibt who has extensive experience in this area. He is the founder of the Nomadic Academy and has written several books including „The New Nomades“, „Tao of
Therapy“, „Healing and Art“ and has worked with many human beings around the world.
This workshop will give advanced tools for working on expression or feelings, blocks to creativity, problems from the past that appear in the creative process and a special set of skills for breakthrough of these blocks.
He has created a unique method called "The Horizon" which helps people focus their attention on positive goals for their lives and then teaches us how to use this methods to help people break through to increased joy and freedom in their personal lives, as individuals and also as partners.”
This is a very fast testimonial but pretty much sums up my feelings... Peter is one of the truly great art teachers… He combines psychological, literary and artistic sensibilities to create a challenging and life changing experience for his students. He teaches a method of connecting to ones innermost dreams, goals and desires, and using this awareness in the actual act of expressing one's true self in the creative act... I feel very blessed to have finally found a real master who shares a lifetime of exploration with those who attend his workshop... Thank you from all my heart, Lauren
My time with you was so enriching and so full of fun, I still feel the positive energy and creativity running through me. I miss you AND I feel you are both here with me when I work.
Thanks very much Peter, Thanks very much Hiedi.
I will cherish those days at your studio for as long as I live, tamar
I miss you too. Your workshop was so great. So meaningful for me.
"Thank you both for a wonderful week.
Firstly, for making me feel so welcome and at home and comfortable. And secondly, for a fantastic week of painting. It was a highlight week for me in my adult years. I had the time of my life in Greece... my oil bars are always ready in my art room, and my "stuckness" of many years has passed. My son and art therapy clients also use them.”
…life is full of surprises and adventures. who would have thought that a random trip into the internet would result in something so important to me...
I think of my time in Greece often and appreciate your welcoming me into your home. I felt like a guest more than merely a workshop participant.
“My week at Artist?Artist! was a truly unique experience. The workshop was well designed with thought provoking exercises that challenged me to expand my
creative horizons and adopt a completely different approach to my painting. Our class worked together to encourage each other’s artistic development and we all enjoyed the process. The bonus was
that I was made to feel welcome and comfortable in Peter and Heidi’s home and in the culture of Paros.”
Genius might be the ability to say a profound thing in a simple way.
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage) to move in the opposite direction.
Natural ability without education has more often attained to glory and virtue than education without natural ability.
Art is a lie that makes us realize truth.
There was never a genius without a tincture of insanity.
We know that the nature of genius is to provide idiots with ideas twenty years later. (Louis Aragon)
Genius is Always Above the Age.
Keep your love of nature, for that is the true way to understand art more and more. (Vincent Van Gogh)
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
It were not best that we should all think alike, it is difference of opinion that makes horse races.
Art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known.
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.
Conditions for creativity are to be puzzled; to concentrate; to accept conflict and tension; to be born everyday; to feel a sense of self.
Art is not a handicraft, it is the transmission of feeling the artist has experienced.
(Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy)
