1:00 pm CDT - 4:00 pm CDT
Instructor: Charlotta Koppanyi
C.G. Jung was among the first psychiatrists who worked with art as a gateway to reach, communicate and understand his patients’, and his own, psyche. C.G. Jung concluded that spontaneous and intuitively expressed art carried religious symbols and spiritual archetypes and therefore connected us to a deeper level of our psyche, both the individual and the collective unconscious. In this hands-on art workshop, the focus will be on how we relate to ourselves as well as others by exploring and illustrating the spiritual aspects we find in art. We will address the differences and the similarities of religious art and spiritual and esoteric art.
