Exploring the Feminine Through Dreams and Dream Art
Led by Janet Fox
Today we will discuss how to honors dreams through art, to create with heated, pigmented bees' wax, often layering in fibrous and colorful papers, fabric, ink, and found materials. After selecting a dream, we will focus on something calling out for our attention. Shifting into the "artist's flow," we often loses track of time while intuitively painting, carving, scraping, filling, smoothing, and buffing, building fabulous contrasts and texture, and honoring the dream. Reflecting on the completed art provides even more insight and further honors the dream.
