Yearly, seasonal, daily rhythms, time passing; each moment gradually transforming us and our world, creating patterns and traces in our earthy lives and landscapes, seen and unseen, an ebb and flow.
Examining ourselves and the world around us, students on this Summer School will look deeper using art as a contemplative tool. This mixed media course will take place within and out-with the studio, in a variety of traditional and experimental ways, to explore and express the natural rhythms of change in this earthy yet spiritual world - the ordinary and extraordinary, the still point and the dance, that which is known and that which is mystery. The course focuses on the practical application of mixed media and includes observational drawing, painting and mark making, and allows students of all ranges of experience to create artwork which responds to, examines or expresses spiritual ideas and practices. Students are welcome wherever they are on their artistic or spiritual journeys.
