Explore how movement, meditation & art-making used to remedy emotional overwhelm & creative positive change.

Yoga for Creatives: Weaving & Ceramics
June 17-18 @ Kimball Art Center, Park City UT
Explore your authentic voice and creative process through gentle movement, meditation, journaling, ceramic art, and weaving. On the first day, we will use mixed-media weaving to explore our conscious desires and habitual behaviors by making a tapestry that harnesses the power of intention. On the second day, we will use clay with simple hand-building techniques and elements of taste to create platters that reflect our unique experience of perception and action. Participants will create expressive artworks and discover how Yoga can be a source of inspiration and self-expression.
June 19-22 @ Kimball Art Center, Park City UT
Learn to see from multiple perspectives with a tangible experience of the present moment. Drawing is a skill that anyone can learn, and somatic means "living body." When we practice Somatic Drawing, we are tuned in with all that encompasses being a living and breathing human being. We will explore the fives Koshas (layers of the body) through mindful awareness, observation practices, internal landscape study, and various methods and materials for drawing. Participants will create a collection of technique sketches, a series of completed drawings, as well as a new understanding of their own body.
Extrasensory: Community Art Opening
November 10 @ The Frist Center of Visual Art, Nashville TN
Palate is one of five community-built artworks for a public exhibition titled Extrasensory. Maria offered free workshops and help community members create ceramic pinch pots that represent individual taste buds. The public participated in blind taste-tests and audio experiments that will be used to create a "symphony of sounds" to accompany the ceramic pots which will be installed on the wall in the shape of a tongue. Exhibition will run from October 2017- May 2018.
