DO YOU EVER WONDER HOW ARTISTS COME UP WITH THEIR OWN UNIQUE VISUALS?
In this workshop, Florida Prize Artist Anja Marais will walk you through how to access your inner imaginary realm to retrieve your ancestral records of rich mythological and symbolic images. The workshop will include discourse, guided meditation, and journaling.
You will discover:
·That you were born with an already filled inner imaginarium.
·How to access your ancestral vault of ideas and visuals.
·How connectivity to your inner world and the human collective gives you a powerful universal voice.
·How to pragmatically implement this practice into your own creative ventures.
Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a journal and pen to work with. To register, please call 407.896.4231 ext. 262.
