The act of transformation can be powerful. In our daily lives we may find it difficult to transform ourselves into the “me” we hope to be. Perhaps we wish we were more confident, less materialistic, beautiful, powerful or grounded and at peace with ourselves. We can achieve all of these things if we desire and if we are ready to put the time and energy into the process of transformation. Sometimes we need a jump-start, a glimpse of who we really are and what we can be. The “Paint is Power” project helps individuals see past their body images or personal limitations and for an hour or more they see themselves as something different, perhaps greater. The painted become empowered and someone or something else emerges which can help people in a myriad of ways.For the project or workshop I usually ask participants Before Questions so I can collaborate with the client to help them realize their new persona. While children especially love to be painted, when adults become a work of art they give themselves and those around them an opportunity to laugh and open up. “Paint is Power” can be used for team building, personal healing, growth, and most importantly it transforms the client into a walking work of art (of course each person is a work of art with or without paint).
