    Cheryl Sylivant: Teaching Abstract Art Practice for Brain Health

    You can change you brain with art practice.  Science is proving it.

    Create more neural connections for yourself, and overcome your fear of what making art is with the guidance and support of an artist who has worked with art materials and studied the brain for over 20 years.  

    Connect to your embodiment and find your system of expression with intuitive art coaching that includes image review, interpretive suggestion, custom weekly curriculum, and keeps you on your path.

    Learn how to link your hand to your brain and to get the benefit of Art and Living Energy® in a trial session.  Coaching sessions are available in 30 minute, and 1 hour telephone meetings. 

    Cheryl has a BA in Psychology, studied art and art history at The University of Pennsylvania and The Art Student's League of NY, and has made abstract art working ahead of her brain for over 20 years.

    Science about art and the brain

    Eric Kandel

     Eric Kandel in his recent book, Reductionism in Art and Brain Science: Bridging the Two Cultures, speaks of "top down" processing as what happens when your brain looks at something that it isn't familiar with.   The puzzle of the "abbreviation" that an abstract artist makes, engages your brain differently than when it looks at something that it expects. With repetition, looking at abstract art literally grows your neuronal connections and changes your living body.
