An Eye On Intentional Creativity:: Rien Cassidy

Rien Cassidy: Bahrain

I was contacted by Farah Alaradi, a fifteen year old Art Student, about interning with me for her work-study assignment. Farah said that she had always been told how to create art in school, and was curious about Intentional Creativity. She was pleased with the opportunity to work with me, learning to create in a more intentional way and think differently about art.

My Medicine Basket Workshop was held prior to the Work study with Farah. I invited her to join to experience the Intentional Creativity process first hand and get a feel for the sort of work I do. 

I’m starting to offer Red Thread Circles here in Bahrain- for sharing Intentional Creativity and creating community. While interning for the week, Farah helped me create ads and organize materials for my upcoming Gratitude workshop.

She also spent some time researching IC and doing a Q&A with me in the end. Farah got a taste of creating an intentional workshop by planning out a class for teens who are getting ready to go off to university. She said she never thought art could be used like this, to heal and work through school stress. I told her she may want to consider becoming an IC teacher one day!

Regional News: Bahrain

I am living as an expatriate in Bahrain, in the Persian Gulf.

In June,  I publicly announced my offerings for Intentional Creativity Workshops on the island. I have held some private sessions and workshops from my home studio as well as at a local Aikido and Yoga studio where I was asked to offer classes and Red Thread Sessions.

March was a very busy time. I was invited to share IC in a mini-workshop and have my own booth at a Wellness Day, and to present a teaser at a fashion show for a fashion academy. I had around 100 people doing the first few steps of a 13 step workshop together. They visioned, set an intention and created an opening.

Below are a few photos from the fashion event, from my booth and also from some students creating paintings in my studio.
