Artists work in a flexible, fluid environment. It is an internal setting that is vulnerable to the process of openness and trust. When you begin a painting, sculpture, musical composition, or performance, there is potential for that artistic expression to develop into something. There is a constant and recurring transfer from potential to kinetic energy throughout the creation of the work, both within the artist and in the work of art itself.

Potential energy is motion waiting to happen. Even the smallest moves can set in motion magnificently creative end results. The work is constantly transformed throughout the process. Sometimes the changes that take place during the creative process are sudden, but most often they happen over time.

Learning in the arts requires the ability and a willingness to surrender to the unanticipated possibilities of the work as it unfolds.
