The Creator’s Spiritual Blueprint
“The term “blueprint” embraces the essence of any creator’s actions, visualizations, thoughts and feelings that are conveyed physically in the making of art. My observation is that every human being holds within them a combined heritage of characteristics, likes and dislikes that make them who they are. Actions imprinted upon matter may represent this richness. All of these qualities, when assembled and marked down on paper, clay, etc., leave visual signs that create a unique fingerprint. This essential imprint will develop and become enriched throughout our life, if given the chance.”
I find this phenomenon a deep tool in art therapy and educational processes.

I demonstrate how I use this phenomenological tool as an aid that helps me be active only as much as needed.
It is also a significant tool in a multicultural society, leaning close to phenomenology and not creating
impingements or being judgmental as I see art expressions that are not my taste.
