MICRO/MACRO COSMOS - a big little workshop for big little kids

June 11 - 15 Morning: MICRO/MACRO COSMOS
Time: 10am - Noon
Ages: 4 - 7

Friday @ Noon - Parent showcase

Looking through a microscope we can visualize the universe and, contrastingly, looking through a telescope, the dance of the celestial bodies mimics that of cells and bacterias. This workshop is designed for our young, brilliant minds. We will begin with the Cell Theory, looking at images of different cells and organisms, plants and animals; we talk about how each cell has a purpose and how, despite the fact that a hair cell is different from a heart cell, each one is perfect and important. We imagine how we would see ourselves under a microscope; we draw and paint different parts of the cells, the mitochondria, the nucleus, and then we paint ourselves as a cell. Then we turn our view to the heavens. Thinking about how each planet is spinning and moving, all alone to its own rhythm, we realize that it is also part of the bigger order and how very important it is that it stays true to its orbit. We learn how the earth is composed of many layers, the earth, the water, on down into the molten lava at the very core of our planet. We draw what we think could be possible on other planets, in our solar system and in others throughout the universe. After discussing other objects found in space such as stars, meteors and space junk, we go on a nature walk to look for objects that we can use for our project and then create the planets out of balloons and paper mache.

The purpose of these workshops is not only to create a finished piece of art, but to enjoy the process of creation as well as to explore different personal emotions and feelings that we experience in reaction to the world around us. They are designed to create awareness of our environment as well as to help us establish a strong sense of self. .

With a focus on reusable and recycled materials, there is an emphasis on the fact that art is everywhere and for everyone. By highlighting the beauty in common items and pointing out different uses for what many would call trash we open up a world not only of imagination but conservation, also.

Ideally, there will be a final showing of the projects made so that the participants can experience the fulfillment of the entire creative process: imagination, creation and exhibition. A small reception can be planned so that on the last day of the workshop we invite the parents to come a little early and see all of the art that was made during the week or month.


Your Artisan Instructor: Celia Rose

just one of her names, but she smells the same

she feels that nothing is new, there are only differing perspectives that continue to develop along with the movement that was set into place long ago

she finds that expressing herself through dance or paint is as natural as breathing and dreaming, and just as necessary

this artist, forged in the red dirt of Oklahoma and seasoned in the hills of Tennessee, currently lives with and learns from the spirits in Mexico

her creations are the result of what she learns from precious ancient tales and the treasures she finds abandoned in alleyways

nothing is without meaning, you must simply feel for it
