Art Cures Incubation Course:
A Special Opportunity to work with Adriana
An Immersive Life/Art Exploration
90 Day Course: February 5 - April 30, 2021
For Educators, Artists, Coaches, Writers, Performers, Therapists, Designers or Anyone who Wants to Learn more about Healing through Creativity.
I created the Art Cures Incubation Course to provide a dynamic offering that blends my skills as artist and a creative and somatic (body-based) therapist/educator. I have worked with people for over 20 years using the creative process to support healing from addiction, grief, trauma, and physical/mental health challenges while facilitating change and growth. I have also learned to prioritize my own art life and have made visual art, poetry, performance and documentary films highlighting my healing journeys. I will support you to combine creative tension with safe structures to enable you to build your practices and projects successfully.
This course will allow you to…
- Give space for your artistic voice to flourish and move out of isolation during these difficult times
- Discover an empowering creative approach to tackle life challenges (i.e. grief/loss, addictions, body shame, illness, depression…)
- Own your creative ‘genius’ and step into the unique gifts you possess as an artist
- Flip the perspective on your limiting life stories and find new pathways for growth
- Be enriched by a community of like-minded creatives who dare to make art from an embodied place
The Art Cures Incubation Course includes:
- Weekly Zoom Classes to develop work and gather creative and somatic resources
- Creative Mentoring Sessions to meet your creative goals without the fear that can block progress
- Supervised ‘Lab’ Time to stay grounded and supported while taking risks in art-making
- Private Facebook Group for connection and community support
- Guest Presenters/Artists to enhance your learning and inspire you to new heights
- Assignments to keep you engaged and making progress
Online Zoom Classes: Fridays, 10-11:30 am with an Opening and Closing Retreat on Friday, February 5th and Friday, April 30th, 10am – 1pm. All Classes are Pacific Time. Find the class time in your specific time zone here.

Course Themes per Month:
February 2021: Embracing Your Life/Art Material
Adriana will guide you to identify and lean in to the life stories, memories, and metaphors that want to be expressed, and tune in to the art mediums that are best suited for you. We will use the tools of expressive arts and somatic work (drawing, collage, photography, movement, poetry, creative writing) to mine the life material that needs a voice.
March 2021: Building an Artistic Practice
Adriana will address the many blocks that get in the way of committing to artistic expression, and support you to find structure and practices that will help you move ahead with your creative vision. As a group you will share challenges and resources, and use aesthetic feedback and the language of the arts to light the path.
April 2021: Sharing Your Creative Work
Whether you want to share your work with a small group of people or make your art public, Adriana will help you move through the fear of being visible, and learn more about the ‘gifts’ of being vulnerable and courageous in art-making. Balancing process and product, we will explore how to create compelling art that furthers your own healing journey, while also translating hope and inspiration to others.

“To be an artist for a lifetime you have to develop good patterns of working. Adriana knows the rocky, unpredictable process of making art because she is an artist herself. She knows that pacing is key to hanging in there. She has great compassion and I learned to be gentle with myself and celebrate small steps. Turns out small steps are the way to get big projects done: consistency and habit build in a gradual, sustainable way. With Adriana, I developed new ways to see myself and make smart choices that unlocked potential I didn’t know I had.”
– Jill Littlewood, Visual Artist
“The course provided a gentle and nourishing container, which was exactly what I needed during a period of ill health and recovery. Adriana’s holding helped me to creatively express extremely difficult emotions and painful physical sensations, and to feel embodied, grateful and whole. It was a wonderful, supportive experience and I have incorporated the practices Adriana introduced us to into my daily life”.
– Dr. Dvora Liberman, Research Fellow, University of Oxford
“In Adriana’s classes I have generated personal resources during the fatal illness of a life long partner and the grief that followed. I have used them to access memories and to liberate body memories from muscles and bones. I have celebrated personal growth. Creating with others similarly engaged gives the sessions extra meaning. They are open to all; no experience necessary. Just come ready to trust her kind, clear and well planned facilitating. Adriana inspires me.”
– Daniel Raskin, Retired Preschool Teacher
“Adriana creates a special safe space that allowed me to drop into my truth and ground as an artist with a unique voice. I felt held and nurtured by the life/art process in the group and individually. It helped me cultivate the confidence to shift what I am still shifting, away from what doesn’t resonate towards what does as an artist. It helped me to see, trust and value my own artistic process.”
– Jessica-Sue Burstein, Performance Artist and Writer
