Art & Movement

This past March I was invited to teach a Bones, Space & Time (Anatomy Workshop) for Brenda Petays painting class in the Visual Arts Department at Camosun College. As is always the case, both myself and the students had a wonderful experience learning to better tune into their bodies to recognize and relieve pain, increase movement, thus freeing themselves creatively.

At the end of the workshop the students experimented with a Jackson Pollack style approach/movement to painting with 4′ canvas on the floor.
