Students Comment on The Art Source:

JOHN :

'I have spent my life doing sketches, work in progress, seeking an appropriate end; few, if any, have been found.
The Art Source is a process which enlivens my senses and deepens my understanding of self with the ultimate goal of making my... oh so many sketches come to life and "sing". ‘ The Art Source has served to cause me to challenge my assumptions, ideas, beliefs and statements in order that I might "see" more clearly.


DEBORA : 'Challenges……Questions…..Encourages……Pushes one out of that rut…… Makes one think outside the box….. Helps forge the heART of you and your work…..Encourages…….Questions……Challenges…….     Mona Adisa Brooks is exceptional in bringing the whole
heART  of the artist to the surface to be explored, challenged
and developed. ‘


BETTY : ‘My work with Mona and The Art Source has been an extraordinary experience for me.  Mona has created an amazing support system for me and my work.  It nurtures me and invites me to explore and create.  I am becoming more aware that my weaknesses and challenges in life can be a source of great strength. Mona is truly a blessing to me.’' 


DEB : 'Working with Mona has been a treat. I've taken group art classes for years. The past 2+ years of classes with Mona have been my first one-on-one experience.  The individual attention has been invaluable, not to mention fun.  I am working in both 3D and 2D.  My work has evolved dramatically thanks to Mona's guidance.  Mona has tremendous patience and has adjusted her teaching methods to suit my quirks. Not an easy feat.  I feel fortunate to be working with Mona.’ 

LAURA:

'Mona hears the Muse, and through her teaching translates what she hears, awakening the Muse in each of us.   Working with Mona has catalyzed the creative source within me, and, like a tuning fork, she has assisted me in remembering and resonating to my authentic creative self.   Mona’s coaching has facilitated me in shifting my current professional life to the focus of a true working artist, a shift which for some time I have been longing.   Her work is masterful and essence-based, and I am very grateful to have the privilege of working with her.'

STEPHANIE"
As a newbie artist how can I describe my experience of learning from Mona?  Fun, challenging, empowering, enlightening.  She has re-awakened the creative being in me.  Helped me to realize the importance of having my own workspace and that art must come from the heart.  She inspires me to face challenges and joys head on and to express them in a variety of art forms.  Her technical instruction has also been invaluable for this beginner.   I have never worked with such a devoted teacher.

KAREN:

​'Your words of wisdom are such a part of me now that when I am working in my studio, I almost hear your voice in me ear, reminding me to see, to be free.  I will never forget the powerful experience I had "painting the pain" on that huge fabric with those big brushes, throwing the paint against the canvas- and how good it all felt to do that.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

DEB

I have been Mona's student in The Art Source for the past 5 years.  Together, Mona and I have gone down a variety of artistic roads, using clay, fabric, metal, pen & ink, collage, oils, watercolors, pastels and charcoal - some paths were fruitful and expansive - others eventual dead ends.  Regardless,  Mona continues to  challenge, encourage, and guide me as I explore and evolve in my creative expression.
