Expressive Art Center welcomes everyone to experience the art of drumming.

Drumming is the world's oldest music and science has now discovered that drumming brings various systems in the body and brain into harmony. You can actually feel the difference after a drumming session.

Drumming generates energy and after each round the leader designates where the blessing prayer and the energy will go.

Participants may bring their own drums or rhythm instruments or use one of the instruments provided by the Drum Circle.

Girls Empowerment classes led by Emily started yesterday with setting up an intentions and creating a Vision boards.

“I feel like the best kinds of friendships are those where you still instantly connect dispite not seeing each other for a while and thats exactly what went on today, there was so much sharing, a bunch of laughing and all the goodness that this bond of sisters has to offer!
We each shared our thoughts, vibes and ideas though the special vision boards that we created. Towards the middle of the class I let each girl choose a piece of tigers eye to help her manifest anything she's wanting.
It was lovely to be able to see all of these girls together- enjoying each others company for our first empowerment class of the year!
Till next week:) “

CLOSER- Visata & Laimis photography exhibition
At Expressive Art Center
September 11th, 6pm

About the artists:

My name is Laimis. I'm a photographer, enjoying work and life in the windy city of Chicago. I capture special moments and create images you keep forever. I'm as passionate about photography as I'm passionate about travel. I love to surround myself with fun and adventure, but I also have a special appreciation for quiet moments. I connect with the world not just through my eyes but through a camera lens.

*******

My name is Visata Rupeika.
I was born in the beautiful little country of Lithuania in Eastern Europe, but Chicago is now my beloved second home. My artistic studies and experience in Lithuania along with my natural creative drive and passion grant me the power to see the beauty in everything. My life was forever changed when I got my very first camera twenty years ago. I can no longer imagine a fulfilling life without it. I have experimented in a wide variety of photographic styles, including portraits, travel, studio, events, wedding, fashion, and even underwater photography. I am always exploring with the unwavering goal of sharing the beauty, grace, strength, and enthusiasm in all people. Photoshop and my undying love of fine art provide me with the tools I need to consistently succeed in this goal. I love spring-boarding creative ideas, so think outside the box and feel free to offer your unique perspectives so we can create something truly amazing.
Besides my passion for photography, I am a mother, a wife, a daughter, a dreamer, a graphic designer, a traveler, and a friend. I confidently embark on every adventure in my path with the warm encouragement from those I love and other skilled industry professionals.
Now, I want to explore and create with you, so let’s work together to showcase your own beautiful story!

They say context is everything, and nowhere is it more true than close-up (macro) photography. If photography’s basic reason for being is to show the unseen and overlooked, then nowhere is there more photographic opportunity then getting down and dirty with a macro lens and documenting the flotsam and jetsam of the unseen world.

Join these 2 incredible photographers to experience CLOSER look at their works - cities, architecture, nature, and of course there is the whole macabre world of bugs!

COME AND DRUM WITH US

All cultures around the world have embraced the drum at some point in their history for healing, meditation, sacred ritual and for connecting with the Divine.

Frame drums are some of the oldest musical instruments, and there is evidence of ritual shamanic use as early as the Paleolithic Era. A revered and sacred tool of priestesses and holy men, indigenous shamans, nomadic and tribal communities, the use of the drum today for its ceremonial, spiritual, healing and therapeutic benefits has not changed a great deal since the time of the earliest civilisations.

Drumming Circle with Anne Onute Savickas
September 14th, Tuesday at 6pm

Why Drums, Drumming and Drum Circles?

We are drawn to drums. They are like a magnet and few can pass a drum without touching it. But, more than that, people with little or no musical background can participate in group percussion activities. And drumming events can bring the benefits of drumming to a broad segment of the population and these experiences tend to be enjoyable and positive for all involved.

Participation in such events promotes relaxation, communication, and a sense of belonging to the community.

YOUR SANCTUARY - expressive ART Center

Express Yourself Through Yoga, Art, Dance, and Music

Unleashing your artistic side can open the mind to new and compelling ideas and engender discovery of passions and intellect. Thus, finding ways to be more creative, through art, dance, music, and expressive yoga, will enrich the soul and provide inspiration for future ventures.

​Explore with US!

Living life to its fullest is a common goal, and it can be possible if you let your guard down and be open to new adventures and growth. Sometimes people get locked into certain personas and thoughts, where the monotony of an average workweek hinders spontaneity, novelty, and the imagination. By shaking things up in creative and artistic ways, it paves the way for enlightenment and personal development.
