The Creative Process
Cycles and Rhythms are a foundational part of life. The creative process is no exception. During this opening block we explore the creative cycle making it conscious and alive within us. The re-creation of a mundane object will be our first art project as we find our own relationship to the ever flowing wheel of creativity.
The starting point is an exploration of human development, both physically and spiritually. From here we explore our individual biographies by creating art out of our life stories. What better art project than your life! You are invited to see with new eyes your unique life’s story using the visual arts as your vehicle.
Oral Storytelling is an ancient art form. Stories are medicine. The remedies for repair and reclamation are contained within the story. We will lean into a story of your choice and work with the ‘how and why’ of telling a story as well as explore it artistically. The culmination of this block is sharing our stories fireside.
Mask making offers a vast terrain of metaphors! We start by casting our faces. From there you are led into a beautiful and profound process of allowing a being to be born from the ‘bones’ of your mask. The mask brings mythic awareness into visual connection with the material world. This is an evocative process like no other!
