What is the Art Connection Circle?
The Art Connection Circle is an intimate group program dedicated to exploring your connection with yourself and others in the group through powerful interactions with art. In this group, Cindy Ingram (creator of Art & Self and Art Class Curator) leads participants through interactive art interpretation and connection activities designed to teach you about yourself, help you understand your values and beliefs, feel your feelings, and connect with other like-minded people. You’ll be surprised how deep the conversation gets in such an easy and natural way. Words cannot truly capture the power and magic of this program.
“When I joined the Circle, I was at a point where I was searching for some kind of connection. I was feeling very lost. I felt like I wasn’t reaching people, and I felt like people weren’t reaching me. I have never felt more connected to a group of people through a screen than I have through the Art Connection Circle. The kind of connection that I got through the Art Connection Circle gives me hope and shows me that it is possible for me to make deep connections with people this way. And I learned that I’m not alone.”
“I went into the Circle promising myself that I was not going to share about my recent cancer. I wasn’t ready. But when Cindy put the first artwork up on day one, it spoke to me so loudly I cried. The art helped me connect with a part of me that was not ready. Art opened a door that was not there before. The art made it easier to talk about my story, and it was met with encouragement and loving kindness from the group. I learned that I can heal, and that art heals.”
“I was really surprised at how deep we were able to get in such a short time. It’s amazing how a piece of artwork can really transition you into so many other aspects to think about, whether it’s the art, your life or someone else’s, or what’s happening in the world.”
“Cindy is truly excellent at creating a safe space for the group to share, explore, and feel heard. I was never worried that I was going to say the wrong thing or that I couldn’t say something that I wanted to say because of how it would be reacted to. That safe space allowed us to create deep bonds.”
“The self-awareness I gained from the Art Connection Circle was profound. I realized how important it is for my actions to line up with my values and also what a strong hold past voices have on how I think about myself now. In the safe and non-judgemental space of the circle, I learned to always be true to myself.“
“The Art Connection Circle is a safe and accepting space, and I felt comfortable there. It was a teddy bear. It was an encyclopedia. It was a community. It was just everything rolled into one.”
