Workshop: Active Imagination on Paper
October 6, 2018
ALICE VAN BUREN, M.A.
A guiding image, a sustained metaphor, can be a life line. It may be an object of contemplation, or it can be worked on, activated, and allowed to develop into a life vision, or even a work of art. This is a hands-on workshop on the creative process, as it reflects the analytic process of growth. It is an opportunity to start your own Red Book, as it were, on a personal scale. We will work with Active Imagination, dreams, spontaneous writing, drawing and collage, to build a personal document.
This six-hour workshop will ask us to reflect on both the image and its manifestation on paper. Art materials will be provided, but participants are asked to bring in any material of their own they may wish to incorporate. No artistic experience is necessary, other than a willingness to experiment with visual thinking.
Place: Sculpture Ranch, 15 Nova Road, Santa Fe
Saturday October 6, 9 am to 4 pm (lunch included)
Fee: $80.00 (Limit 12 people) (CEUs not available for this workshop)
