I am community artist Rauha Hartt. I have MFA from Goldsmiths, UCL, London. Way before acquiring my degree and ever since, I have made art using multiplicity of methods and mediums. I have worked alone in the studio making paintings, collages and textile work, I have made short films in teams, organised photo shoots in studios and outdoors and built a community flower shop, to name few things... During the years I have gained a lot of experience in jobs which require different types of creativity, whether they've been art workshops for children or co-coordinating an opening of a large scale art show. Not forgetting the hours and hours labored with my personal art projects. Recently I have also started to device and structure a method which I've named "Dance n'Paint". This practice combines my two passions - dancing and painting - into joyous, celebratory sessions. Here the participants are invited to loosen up through movement to create expressive paintings and energise themselves with the flow that is created from free association that stems from music. As a starting point there is music, which opens an avenue for dance which leads to visual expression on paper, and then the cycle repeats and organically ebbs and flows between dancing and painting. I personally use this method in the studio on most of my paintings and I also conduct classes for groups and individuals.
