HAUSCHKA THERAPEUTIC PAINTING:

The Secret Life Of Color

Color

Using the Hauschka Therapeutic Painting method, this beginning class will start out with exercises to explore the nature of each color and color mixing, and conclude with a series of paintings called, "Earth, Water, Air and Fire: Painting the Elements" We will paint each of the elements and explore them as a metaphor depicting the temperaments within us.

This method of painting is a gentle introduction to the creative process, and invites us to open to our unconscious, and through the process, to allow an image to emerge. The time spent with these pure colors and liquids is rejuvenating to the body and soul.

"Collot" VEIL PAINTING AND CHARCOAL DRAWING

 

dancing in the light

Using Liane Collot d'Herbois teachings on Light, Color and Darkness, we will complete a veil painting and several charcoal studies. 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 systems.

Color: the middle, rhythmical breathing realm 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. Through the warmth and darkness of the will and metabolic system, we hold, cherish and digest all that life brings to us.

Dates Wednesday evenings, 10 weeks from Feb. 5 - April 16, 2014 Time: 6:30 - 8:30 PM Cost: $300

Location: Donna Webb’s Casket Arts "Carriage House" Studio #302 1720 Madison St. NE, Mpls., MN 55413

BEGINNING DRAWING

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 assigment to get them going.

Mondays, 6:30 - 8:30 PM, 14 weeks from January 27, 2014

Fee: $420 all materials provided

Meets at my studio space, #302 at the Casket Arts Carriage House in NE Minneapolis

Three students are required for a class, so gather a few friends and create a one-day workshop or series of classes on one of the topics below:

Wet on Wet watercolor
A gentle introduction to the creative process based on Margrethe Hauschka's Therapeutic Painting Technique. The time spent with these pure colors and liquids is rejuvenating to the body and soul as you use this watercolor process to access the well of creativity within you. No prior experience is necessary as you let your painting evolve from your unconscious and record your journey to the dream world and back again.

Wholistic Arts
Students use non-verbal or symbolic language to access the unconscious and immerse themselves in the flow of the creative process. The class combines work with color, mandalas, automatic drawing, meditations, illuminations and collage that allow the participant to look in a "different way" from their habitual way of looking at the world.

Foundations of Drawing
Artist's are "See-ers". They literally "see" the world around them with more focus then the rest of us. Yet, all of us have the ability to be see-ers. The most basic path to seeing is learning to draw. To learn how to draw we must first learn to look without preconceptions. We will practice this "Artist's way" of looking and techniques that have been used by artists over the centuries. We will also work with methods of drawing to express our inner feelings. 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.

Drawing With Light….A Beginning Photography Class
Creative photography moves beyond just taking photos, into the realm of "making" photographs. As we learn to understand how the camera works, we can be more actively involved in the decision making process as we create and "draw" with light on the film.

Hand-Painting Your Black & White Photos
Learn the time- honored art of hand oil painting your own black and white photos. Turn them into a work of art as well as creating your own heirloom.
