It is a small magical room, created to accommodate a natural and ancient activity ... that of painting.
You paint standing, with sheets hanging on the wall, with excellent brushes and good colors, participating in a game made of personal gestures.
The individual concentrates, transforms the white surface of the sheet into a living space, where he can express himself. Through this concentration it acquires strength and security, because it is achieved without competition or referring to a model. Create a universe tailored to your wishes.
Who enters for the first time in the Closlieu hardly remains indifferent. The small closed room, silent and vibrant with colors, brings us back to the distant era of gestation. An intimate and protected place, where you can go back to being yourself in an authentic and natural way, expressing yourself in absolute spontaneity.
The Closlieu allows an extraordinary experience, far from the frenetic rhythms and the conditioning of every day.
In this intimate and protected place we move away momentarily from the real to give possibility to the expression and the personal strength to emerge in the constituted group. Everyone paints for himself and for his own pleasure and the paintings do not give comments or considerations. Consequently it is necessary that whoever participates in the Closlieu - child or adult that is - should not think of any other fruition than his own, absolute and non-judgmental. The thought of a recipient outside of himself or of any external purpose compromises the experience of the Closlieu from its foundations .
Painting in the Closlieu is not an activity that takes place by chance or once in a while: people aged 3 to 99 years find themselves weekly for about an hour and a half from October to May, acquire concentration, ability to commit and rigor, amplifying their abilities. Drawing on one's inner self, they bring to light their personal characteristics and, regardless of their age, they become aware of being unique and unrepeatable.
They learn, playing without aggression and competition, how infinite their possibilities are.
