ART THERAPY:

about eurythmy therapy 
When the human organism loses its equilibrium an imbalance results and illness may ensue. The intervention of eurythmy therapy can affect a change to restore the organism towards balance. This may avoid the development of illness or encourage a positive return to health.
arscura
This initiative is inspired by Spiritual Science, the work of Rudolf Steiner and others, who saw art as arising from the Great Mysteries. They identified the spiritual dimension of art as the origin and therefore the reason for its application in healing and human encounter. Anthroposophy, the name Rudolf Steiner gave to his renewed Mystery teachings, means wisdom of our humanity. He wanted to "connect the spiritual in the human being with the spiritual in the cosmos". As its mission, Arscura takes this statement and seeks to manifest it through art.

PAINTING:

color space
Lazure refers to a method of painting walls using layers of paint prepared nearly as thin and transparent as watercolor. The "paint" consists of water, a binder, and pigment and is applied with a rhythmical motion using large brushes. The final color experience is achieved using several layers, usually different in color, applied over a white surface.
