THE LIFE CYCLE OF THE PLANT

plant

Getting nourishment from the earth through its roots, and light from the sun above, the plant blooms like us, in the meeting of heaven and earth.

As we paint a plant cycle from seed, to bud, to bloom and then decay, we see the similarity in the cycles of our own biography.

Wet-on-Watercolor is a gentle introduction to the creative process based on Margarethe Hauschka’s Therapeutic Painting Technique. The time spent with these pure colors and liquids is rejuvenating to the body and soul as we use this process to access the well of creativity within us.

Tuesdays, 12 – 2 PM, June 19 – July 31 All materials provided. Fee $210

Class is held at my studio space at the Casket Arts Carriage House, #302, located behind the main building beside the grain elevators, 1720 Madison St. NE, Mpls., MN 55413

You begin the painting without knowing what the final image or theme will be as you open to your unconscious, and through the process, allow an image to emerge.

The time spent with these pure colors and liquids is rejuvenating to the body and soul.

IMAGE AND ARCHETYPE

light in the darkness

Join me for a weekend intensive working in charcoal with the primordial archetypes of light and darkness, inspired by the Collot methods of "Light, Color and Darkness".

In this context we refer to the activity of light and darkness not as good and evil, but in their archetypal activity.

Light: consciousness, thinking, and the nerve-sense system.

Darkness: Unconscious activity, warmth, the will and the metabolic system.

Color: the middle, rhythmical breathing of our feelings and soul.

Through the light of the thinking and nerve-sense process we are able to become more conscious, awake and focused, and able to respond in the moment. Through the warmth and darkness of the will and metabolic system, we hold, cherish and digest all that life brings to us.

Fee: $90, All Materials included.

BEGINNING DRAWING

Classes at the Edina Art Center

Escher

Artists are "See-ers". They literally see the world around them in a different way than the rest of us. Yet, all of us have the ability to be "see-ers". To learn how to draw, we must first learn to "look" without preconceptions.

We will practice this artist's way of looking and drawing from observation, and experiment with a number of drawing techniques that have been used by artists over the centuries.

This class is geared towards beginners... but is suitable for those who wish to refresh their drawing skills, or just need a class or assignment to get them going.

Summer Session

Wednesdays, select either 12-2 PM or 6 - 8 PM Class, 12 weeks, June 6 - Aug 29th, 2018

Call Edina Art Center to register; 952-903-5780, or email ArtCenter@EdinaMN.gov
