FIRST DAY AND TIME OF EVENT:May 07, 2021
LAST DAY AND TIME OF EVENT:May 28, 2021
4 Fridays: May 7 – 28, 10-11:30am PDT
Each part of our bodies is unique: each has developed specific functions, moves in particular ways, and has its own stories to tell and dances to dance. In this 4-part series, we focus on a new area of the body each week. For each body part, we study anatomy and body mechanics, we explore its movement somatically, and we allow its wisdom to express through drawing, creative writing, and dance. By exploring our anatomy experientially and artistically, we connect more deeply with our bodies, creativity, and lived experience.
Learning objectives for this series:
1. Identify and embody various parts of the body through experiential anatomy
2. Use the Tamalpa Life/Art Process to make connections between artmaking and lived experiences.
3. Draw on methods of somatic and expressive arts pedagogy as applied to health, embodiment, and creativity.
This series is open to everyone. No art or dance experience needed
To get the most out of this online class, please prepare a comfortable space to move in with access to your online device and reliable internet service. Also, have art supplies ready at hand for the drawing activity and paper and pen for journaling and creative writing exercises.
