The very word evokes a world of mystery and intrigue: abandoned jungle cities. Archeological puzzles. A lost civilization of pyramid builders. But did you know that the word also refers to a vibrant culture of more than 6 million people still living today? It is for all of you who want to expand your horizons and challange your vision. Creating an art project is part of this workshop, but the emphasis is on learning, exploring and venturing beyond the realm of our normal, daily experience - changing our perceptions and recharging our creativity.
Day 1: Anytime we venture beyond the realm of our normal, daily experiences, our perceptions are altered, our creativity charged. And the more foreign a culture we thrust ourselves into, the more profound the effect. In this hands-on workshop, you'll explore Mayan history, cosmology, plant and animal lore and modern life from an artist's perspective. Through a series of guided exercises both playful and meditative, learn how this rich culture can elicit powerful responses in your own work. You'll engage in treasure hunts, visit Mayan textile markets and experience a religious Mayan ceremony.
