New Spring Projects! One silver lining of this pandemic world has been reconnecting with Teaching Artist colleagues outside the United States. This March I have been dreaming up a new workshop in collaboration with a group of visual artists in Mexico City. We worked together at CAFAMI in 2011. Here is a shot I took during that trip:
I connected to the city in a very meaningful way when I was studying there in 2011 so wanted to include shots from "real life" although this new collaboration is all on Zoom. The organization I am working with Pincelando Con Luz, or Painting with Light, has been painting murals all around the state of Puebla for the past ten years. Now we are creating a zoom workshop on visual arts and mindfulness to support kids stuck at home during the pandemic. I will be contributing my knowledge of the mind body connection for some short movement/ meditation breaks to be used throughout the art work shop.
