artist's way: week 11

by gl. at 4:55 pm

we're getting near the end now, so we're moving into the messier, large scale arts. last tuesday it was blind painting, which is a little scary for students but always produces interesting work. this group took to it pretty easily.

one of my favorite parts of the blind painting exercise is using it as an opportunity to explain my favorite form of feedback, which involves three distinctly different types of responses (descriptive, emotional & artistic: i described these responses when writing about october's guided intent event). if i didn't throw so much at them at the beginning, i would do this response process several times during the cluster, because it only gets better with repetition.

center (self-protection): more with the versatile bowls. this was actually an intuitive center i created quickly for one of my independent support clients last week, but the prep for the blind painting exercise is pretty involved and i couldn't get it all done in time, so i used this one again.

music: paul simon's rhythm of the saints.
