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 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:
Identify and embody various parts of the body through experiential anatomy
Use the Tamalpa Life/Art Process to make connections between artmaking and lived experiences.
Draw on methods of somatic and expressive arts pedagogy as applied to health, embodiment, and creativity.
No art or dance experience needed
