In this introductory workshop, participants are introduced to The Tamalpa Life/ Art Process, an approach that enlivens dialogue between body and imagination, and life experiences and art making. Using movement, drawing, poetic writing, and improvisational performance, participants will tap into art’s symbolic language to explore current life themes and generate new resources.
