VIRTUAL ART STUDIO & CREATIVE COMMUNITY
Monthly Artistic Laboratories Starting January 19th 2023
The Virtual Live Art laboratory is an online creative platform for a community of artists and creative souls that has been growing over a few years. Artists, designers, coaches, therapists, group leaders and creators from all fields come together because they believe the arts have a role to play in their personal and professional life.
We draw from the principles of Interdisciplinary Expressive Arts and Art Based Research to anchor, inspire, refresh and renew our art practice. Artistic expression and the creative process become an experiential laboratory to explore, observe, try out and discover, while engaging the imagination and cultivating awareness.
Our ART BASED monthly laboratories combine inspirational interdisciplinary artistic experiments, community art practice, mindfulness tools and group dynamic to support everyone’s creative process. We work with a range of artistic practices: drawing, painting and mixed media techniques as well as artistic rituals, installations, improvisations and performances. Weaving hands-on analogue and digital creation with creative writing and journaling, artistic conversations and inspirational talks, we nourish our creative process and keep our art practice alive.

"The art assignments allowed for amazing transformation for me. Yes, they were intense, lots of work, but I wouldn't want it any other way. It was all this hard work that allowed for deep, thoughtful, meaningful work. I worked really intensely for 3 months, mostly on your class. What emerged for me felt like a year's worth of experience and unexpected, immense forward movement." Cristina from USA - Web designer & artist
"The Art Lab experience with Roseline was a wonderful 3 months process, a journey of exploration and discovery, creative and personal. Roseline's personality drive and commitment make the course flow and happen for everyone. She is also a compassionate woman, this comes through in her interactions, there is a caring supporting nature that holds the group and at the same time drives them forward." Satty from Netherlands - Yoga teacher & artist
"The lab experience was a great gift! It helped me to move through the darkness and refresh my creativity in an embodied way finding new tools and company to move along through the difficult months of the COVID pandemia.
It was wonderful to share with you and so many other artists from different parts of the world. It seemed magical, that in the midst of so much pain and restrictions going on worldwide, we could share such an enlivening, creative and inspiring experience to go on creating, learning and responding to our deep selves and to the world´s need….In EXA terms, we could say that your lab promoted POIESIS at its best. Thank you very much, Roseline!". Pilar from Peru - Expressive art teacher, art therapist & artist
"It was inspiring and enriching to have the opportunity to be part of your workshop. It gave me a frame to research and step into the world of visual arts with its many possibilities. I loved to experiment with colours and get to know different art materials, to learn how to work on a piece over a period of time and develop it, working with collage gathering images which spoke to me and see what would enfold out of it. The teaching about art and the documentaries were very inspiring and gave me new insights." Sandra from Spain - Dancer and dance retreat facilitator
"This Art Lab came at just the right moment for me, during the Covid quarantine and in a moment of processing the passing of my father. It felt like a moment to reconnect to my inner creativity and find release and flow of emotions. I thoroughly enjoyed Roseline’s methods of deconstruction and harvesting our work. I made discoveries and surprised myself in the process of letting go of expectations. I loved how we started each session with meditation and connection to our body, mind and soul. The incorporation of movement also helped to loosen up and work with freedom. This lab has pushed all the buttons and set me off on my art journey again. I feel a lot of inspiration. Thank you Roseline!" Mischa from Spain - Visual artist & musician
"The diversity of the participants and the new connections I have developed through the course have been extremely enriching. Roseline, your ability to be present and to witness everyone in a meaningful way is inspiring.
While taking the class I was kayaking down a river and reached a small area of faster moving water, which was also shallow. I was worried I might hit bottom and get stuck there. I could feel my body tense up and brace itself. I then remembered that the water will flow where there is least resistance so I took a deep breath, let go, lifted my paddle out of the water, and just allowed the faster flowing water to guide me and my kayak down the river. That is what your class has helped me learn, not to resist the bumpy parts, let go, and trust that I will make it to the other side. As a consequence I have started a new series of paintings that I am feel are some of the best I have made. Thank you." Sylvia from USA - Psychiatrist & artist
"In Roseline's workshops I was able to let go of my pre-conceived ideas and limitations to create meaningful and valuable art works I would have never imagine I was capable of" Oscar from Spain - Language teacher
