California College of the Arts
Brook Woolf, a Chicago native was trained in many avenues of the arts at an early age. Starting at 14 years of age at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in fashion design and later at 16 travelling abroad to the American University in Paris for painting and photography. Graduating from California College of the Arts and Crafts in the Bay Area, she studied teaching alongside an array of multidisciplinary arts such as bookmaking, radio, textiles, sculpture, instillation and art history.
In 2008, Rumble Arts was founded by Brook. Rumble Arts is an accessible multicultural space that facilitates the empowerment and education for individuals and communities. She became responsible for project planning, management, and the implementation of after-school services across a network of seventeen elementary schools in Chicago. It now is partnered with many other nonprofit centers throughout chicago and essentially is built as a vessel for their partners agencies to create free or donation based programming within the three story facility.
Now at 28 years of age, Brook decided to take her healing to a more holistic and personal intentional space. As a Thai bodyworker, leader in meditations, Tarot, Yogini, painter, and designer of all natural clothing she was able to embrace her art through love and compassion of her divine path. She is well on her way to becoming a renowned healer and artist.
Upcoming Gallery Show....
What is your favorite color? Have you ever asked yourself if there may be untapped meaning behind the reason for your attachment? Come see the Joules of the Chakras awakened through the human form take intentional shape and spaces.
Through acrylic paint onto a canvas, artist Brook Woolf, explores the visual senses by taking color and lightness and intertwining human poses that bring strength, stability, balance and peace. Large-scale watercolor-like textures, the paintings create tranquility and empowerment for the viewer. With knowledge in yoga, eastern philosophy, and a multidisciplinary art background she is able to go beyond the canvas and permeate comfort in any given space. It is a sensory explosion and measured in Joules (unit of energy).
