WHY AFFIRMATIVE ART
If you know what you want from life, and take action in accordance with your wishes, show commitment and patience, you tend to get what you want.
Unfortunately often we get distracted on the way. Affirmative Art is a fun and creative tool that helps us identity what we want and get it.
Affirmative Art brings colours, shapes and images to the process of defining direction in life. It is a useful tool for individuals, organisations and companies to determine
goals and visions.
WHAT IS AFFIRMATIVE ART
AROUND THE WORLD
THE TRIPLE A PROCESS
Affirmaive Art is the process of painting you plans and drawing your dreams. It is a creative tool giving images to your future and bringing them closer to reality.
Align your life to your goals as defined in your Affirmative Art. Put your thoughts in the right mode and direct your mind in the right direction.
Once goals are visualised and life aligned, action is required. Get out of comfort zone and take action, often that implies taking courage to ask those who can help you make it happen.
THE AFFIRMATIVE ART STORY
In 2012 Eirik Jarl realized art could be a powerful tool for identifying goals and visions in life.
If we visually define our purpose in life, we bring it closer and make it more real.
He was living in Africa at the time, and saw that affirmative art could be a powerful tool for development, as art is a universal language, which does not require literacy, and is cheap and available to all.
The initial process of identifying ones vision or purpose is an eye opener, as many people have not thought deeply about what they want to get out of life.
Later Eirik Jarl realized that Affirmative Art needed to be supported by thoughts and actions. If there was no correlation between the vision,
as defined through Affirmative Art, and behaviour it did not work. In response, the triple-A process was introduced.
The Affirmative Art concept is still under development, input and
feedback is welcome.
We want to organise Affirmative Art events and collaborate with those interested in using this concept, or working with similar concepts.

Affirmative Art Army is a response to the need to share the message of Affirmative Art, as well as put it into action! It has been developed by Eirik Jarl in collaboration with friends across the world.
The role of the Affirmative Art Army (AAA) is to spread the message of the use and impact of Affirmative Art trough workshops, training and teaching. The Affirmative Art Army also leads by example through doing Affirmative Art themselves.
The core Affirmative Art Army team consist of Kiffe, Joakim, Khalid and Eirik Jarl. In addition NIAAD graduates are spreading the message.
The AAArmy will update regularly on Affirmative Art's Facebook page
