You may be wondering how adding a hobby will create joy in other parts of your life.

#1 Creating Art Sensitizes Us To Beauty

There are a variety of reasons, but essentially it's this; Creativity of any kind increases our sensitivity to small moments that go unnoticed while we're consumed with our daily responsibilities. Our antennas for spotting them get rusty and may even disappear.

Here's where adding creativity to your life can give you a shift in perspective, not just when you are working on a piece, but in your daily life. The same discernment you will discover in improving or beginning an art practice will transform the rest of your day.

#2 Create More
Joy

We are so caught up in the responsibilities of life that before we know it, we're not sure what we like or want anymore. Do you feel you're just going through the motions of living day-to-day, but you can't remember the last time you felt invigorated or excited about something?

This course will help you reignite the joy you remember feeling as a child, full of freedom and curiosity. Let's get started on tapping into the part of yourself that's been sleeping and ignored for far too long!

About Me


Ana Cristina Berard is an abstract artist, author, therapist and expressive art educator.

I’m the founder of A Mind of Your Own, a therapy practice where I incorporate various forms of healing modalities. In addition to the standard treatments, I often encourage and help my clients to find their creative spark.

There is a plethora of research that shows how beneficial creativity is to human beings. It is in our nature to want to create. Whether you choose music, art, gardening, or woodworking, doesn’t matter. Being creative uses a different part of our brain, the part that allows us to relax and feel joy and freedom again.

I incorporate various forms of creativity in my life. I often say, that for me it's like breathing. Initially, I provided one on one guidance with my clients, but with the challenges that we all face in 2020, I realized there was a need to reach out in a more permanent manner to a larger community.

Beginner's Advantage

Experienced artists can get stuck as well. They may be skilled but if their art doesn't come from the heart, it can feel joyless and stale. They may focus too much on techniques and process, forgetting why they love art in the first place.  

Beginners have an advantage in this respect. They are more willing to throw caution to the wind and try anything.  They are more curious, because everything is new to them and their perspective is that of a child.  And that's exactly what we want.  

How I find inspiration and joy through my art?

What's holding you back? Fear

How much longer does your soul, the authentic you, without apology, have to wait?  Remember, our brains are primed for fear.  As a neurofeedback therapist, I work directly with clients who have severe anxiety and help them overcome anxiety and despair.  I've also seen first-hand, in my own life and in the life of others, the healing powers of art. 

For one moment, talk with compassion and appreciation to that fearful, embarrassed inner you.  Explain that finding ways to infuse joy in your day-to-day life, will keep you safe and put you on a course to a healthier, more joyful way of living.  There is nothing to be afraid of.  You already have what it takes to produce your own art, because you are your only you!  Learning a few basic skills can get you started on your journey to finding joy.
