Testimonials from OYAP in-person courses students
"Ely is wonderful and generous and quirky. She is a genuine human being. I appreciate her honesty and humanity. If you have your head in the clouds, Ely will pull on your sleeve to remind you to come back to earth -- at least, for a bit.
I am happy that I attended. It's made me focus a bit more. Ely provided some resources and instruction that I will use during the next phase of my artistic career. "
Duane Abbott - photographer

"Participating in Ely Urbanski's Organize Your Artistic Path challenge was eye-opening for me. Although intended for visual artists, I used the challenge to examine my path as a poet, singer, and performing artist.
One day's challenge to answer the question what kind of an artist I am got me whole new line of thinking about what could be possible for me. I realized that the work I find most satisfying involves helping people connect to the people and things they find most important in their lives, and that one powerful way I like to do this is by participating in or creating rituals that are personally suited to the people involved in celebrating a certain transition or honoring a certain person in their lives. It threw light on on a spirit I can carry more consciously into my writing and singing. Beyond that, it inspired a new business idea I'm pretty excited about,
in which I would help people design personalized rituals.
I found the OYAP challenge both useful and inspiring."
Elaine Danforth, CA
Poet, singer and performing artist
"I found OYAP to be thought provoking and helpful on many levels. Thank you Ely and fellow participants."
