images and thoughts from Sean Kramer
"Humans do not live very long,
and having seen just a part they boast of having seen the whole."

"We make assertions and denials of what is next to it,
but never of it."
Dionysius the Areopagite

Much decorative and folk art is based on a small number of basic shapes and lines, combined to create a great variety of borders and patterns, as well as stylized flowers, birds, landscape elements and more. In this class we will learn these basic shapes and motifs, and principles of rhythmic combining. We will use them to invent and draw borders, patterns, scrolls, and many other forms and designs. Then we will move on to learn fundamental brush strokes and techniques with to create colorful paintings and decorated objects. To first class bring: pencils, drawing paper and/or sketchbook.

The sessions of this workshop will be pleasantly spent mediating and doing art meditatively. We will begin each class working with our body, breath and mind. Then we will try a variety of contemplative art practices: mandalas and yantras, spontaneous and intuitive art making, working with symbols, drawing our journey, surrealist techniques, and more. The emphasis will be on the process, art as a meditative practice, letting go of the inner critic.
