Have you ever said, “Well, I’m really not that creative?” or “No. I’m not the creative one…” Or are you the creative one? My guest today has a unique take on creativity, which she will share with us. With her approach, she’s been able to transform the lives of thousands of students who have walked past her studio, The Art Studio NY. I have Rebecca Schweiger on the show! Rebecca is not only an internationally renowned artist, who has exhibited her work in major galleries and sells it across the globe, but she is the Founder of The Art Studio NY and the Author of the newly released book, Release Your Creativity: Discover Your Inner Artist with 15 Simple Painting Projects
Today, Rebecca and I talk about the concept and promise of The Art Studio NY, which has become the #1-rated New York City art studio offering hundreds of monthly art classes and programs. The Art Studio NY offers a unique community for those seeking an uplifting, fun and creative home to relieve stress, reconnect within, and express themselves authentically through art on the canvas and in daily life.
We discuss what was the impetus for her to take a non-traditional route within the art world. You will hear in Rebecca a woman who’s found a clear mission and calling in life and has, with much determination, embarked on fulfilling it.
She tells us about resistance she faced, and on the flip side, shares how her work has made a profound impact in her students’ lives – one that as you will hear, goes well beyond the canvas. And how do you get an approbation from Elie Weisel, obm? Rebecca tells us how she and him crossed paths. And if you wonder what you could be doing better to nourish your children’s creativity, Rebecca has some wonderful tips for you! As I told Rebecca in the interview, what I love about her work is that it is both so spiritual yet so practical. Ladies, you’re in for a treat. Here’s the lovely Rebecca Schweiger.
