OUR GIVE BACK...ART

Transcend - to rise above

We believe that we are all artists. We are born to create. We have something beautiful to offer the world, produced with our hands from our imagination. We offer a program, Transcend, that uses art as a medium to experience our world. 

 

We realize that not everyone has the blessing of an environment that nourishes their creativity. Some individuals are born into circumstances that do not allow them to flourish. They have to transcend their environment. They have to rise above their trauma. 

 

Art is a very powerful therapeutic process. It is a catalyst of healing. It taps into our subconscious. Art wakes us to the deeper reality and a peace.  

 

“I awoke only to find that the rest of the world was still asleep.”

Leonardo da Vinci

LOVE is the ultimate POWER

Love is the Law

Art is experienced by the heart. In our emotions we have the wisdom to navigate our lives. As we align our life, we live in the moment, without regret or future hope. We live. 

 

We approach art as an intuitive, deep process. It is something we all can access; we are all artists. We work to offer methodology and tools that the youth can utilize in the reality of their lives. We cannot alleviate pain and we will not be able to remove future obstacles. We can offer an approach to life from a deep knowledge that we are loved.

 

"Where there is LOVE there is LIFE." 

Mahatma Ghandi

 HEART + MIND = BELIEF

​To create one’s own world takes courage. Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing.  Making your unknown known is the important thing.” 

The MYSTERY of ART and SCIENCE

ART and SCIENCE

ART evokes mystery. It is expansive. Art is an entry and exit simultaneously; it is a duality. The power of art is visible, palpable. The appropriate art resonates with the individual and allows them to enter a space they had not been able to access. It is escapism.

 

Art is more than physical. Art emotes, it evokes emotion. The art and the individual enter a dynamic that is personal, transformative. We gravitate to art that is of a similar vibration to our energy. Everyone has heard of the blue room and creativity, but it is more than color - it is vibration.

 

"All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man's life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual towards freedom."

Albert Einstein

Inspired Installations

When people view the suspended installation, Rise Above Plastics: The Butterfly Effect, they are first mesmerized by hundreds of butterflies gently spinning and reflecting the light. When they notice that in unison the butterflies form a human figure, emerging from a chrysalis, with butterflies of change flying from her heart, they are experience awe. When they hear the story of how the installation was created with up-cycled plastic trash, by 700 children, it is profound. The suspended installation is a message of hope and inspiration, of personal choice and empowerment. The installation prompts the audience to ask questions and examine their own actions and lifestyle. 

If you have a business that would like to create an installation that is powerful and artistic with a message ... we do that! When working on a project about plastics in the ocean, up-cycled plastic is the obvious choice. Artistic installations can be creative, altruistic and captivating. The inclusion of a diverse population in the creation of the art is engaging energetically. It adds an authenticity, inspiring the audience to make a positive change in their own lives. It allows the audience to relate to the subject matter from a new perspective.

"Several neighbors have procured art with Essence Arts. We have a neighborhood organization that we are very passionate about. We collaborated with Essence Arts to host an event at the country club. It was a wonderful evening. We were able to acquire more beautiful art and generate thousands of dollars for our charity."  

Do you love art? Do your friends? 

If you have a network of friends that would enjoy an evening of art, wine and conversation you are a candidate to host an art party. You generate funds for your favorite charity (10% of sales donated). You have a memorable evening celebrating the arts - not the average mixer. Essence arts supplies the art, a complimentary mix based on your personal taste. They produce the invites and promote the event. They create a platform to offer event information and track attendance. They collaborate with you on ensuring that you have a successful event on all fronts - whether it is a small private party or a more elaborate evening at a local venue.
