Finger Labyrinths: A Path for HeART and Hand

CLASS ID: 2Y901
Date/Time: Wednesday, February 20, 9:30 AM – 11:30 AM

Mary Silvaroli Daul
Come explore the smallest of all labyrinths, known as finger or tabletop labyrinths, and discover how these miniature patterns offer an ever present “path of possibilities” at your fingertips, to inspire art and a more artful way of living. Armed with only the simplest of art tools and a simple guide for drawing the classical labyrinth from its “seed pattern,” participants will move through drawing, “walking”, collaging, and journaling exercises designed to increase curiosity and creativity. Grounded in the ancient wisdom and ways of the labyrinth and a unique “labyrinth as life coach” approach, this class is designed to provide rest for your soles and awareness that all you ever need to journey on the path of the labyrinth is as close to your heart as your hand.
