If you have not had the pleasure of working with visiting artist Celia Rose, then this would be a wonderful opportunity to do so! Celia has designed this workshop with projects that can be enjoined by a large age range, which means this could be a great experience for parents and grandparents to join their favorite youths for an artistic experience not found anywhere else in Middle Tennessee. Celia travels from Mexico and offers to create these classes on occassion when she has a rare stop in Columbia. We are very lucky to offer such diversity of artistic expression at the CAB and we hope you take the opportunity to study with this gifted artist.

Mystic Spiral Workshop

Celia Rose Jameson

October 7 - 11, 2019


The Mystic Spiral Workshop uses the image of the spiral or the labyrinth which is found all over the globe in many cultures, ancient and modern. We will not only create different works of art, using whenever possible recycled and re purposed materials, but we also will discuss the different cultures and parts of the world where these traditions are found. For example, we will make ojos de dios or god’s eyes. Before beginning to create, we will have a discussion about Wirikuta, the desert in central Mexico where the Wixarika (Huichol) people live and where this art form began. Looking at plants and animals, the climate and customs of the Wirra culture will enrich the experience and understanding of why we are making the ojo de dios.


The projects are created to emphasis the importance of re purposing materials. A large part of the workshop requires the participant to be observant of her environment so as to utilize to the best of her ability any material that serves what we are creating in the moment. We will go on walk abouts to collect sticks, feathers, shells or any item that could adorn our projects, and at the same time we will pick up trash and dispose of it correctly after we have separated and cleaned any item that we could use with our activity. Some evenings there will be homework and the participants will look around their homes or yards and, with the permission of a guardian, bring in items to use and to share. This creates an awareness of just how much potential exists in a single object, and within the child, as well.


The workshop will culminate with the creation of a walking labyrinth that will remain on the property for the use of the neighborhood and the community. It serves as a space for reflection and meditation. Walking the labyrinth promotes tranquility and inner calm and is a great patience practice. There are a variety of possible materials that could be used such as stones, bricks or rope. The choice will be that of the Columbia Arts Building, depending on the space or preference. 


The Mystic Spiral Workshop offers the opportunity to create beautiful pieces of art inspired by ancient cultures worldwide.  We learn about the beauty of the unique and individual traditions, while at the same time finding the similarities that we all have in common and share because of our humanity. We learn to be respectful of the Earth and conscious of our consumption of mass-produced goods, remembering to find usefulness in what we have instead of looking for something new to buy. This inspires creativity which is applied in all aspects of a person’s life and is a useful skill for the participants to nurture.
