History proves that art has the power to change civilizations. Transformative art purposefully cultivates the unique capacity of art to heal, awaken and transform.
If you’re a creator, we know you believe in the transformative power of art. Our guest, Dana Lynne Andersen, shares her journey from artist to academician and back to artist.
Dana’s magnificent paintings have been featured on the covers of books, magazines and calendars, newspapers, radio and television. She has taught and exhibited on three continents, and hosts an annual art academy in Assisi, Italy.
In 1986 Dana founded her first “Transformative Arts Studio” in Berkeley, California – a nexus for the pioneering integration of Art and Spirituality.
In 2002 she founded “Awakening Arts”, an international network of artists committed to the creation of art that is uplifting and transformative.
In 2009 Dana began teaching in Italy and India, establishing The Academy of Art, Creativity & Consciousness and developing a certification program in the approach. The Academy has two centers; near Assisi, Italy and Portland, Oregon.
