on Wednesday 29th November. The event starts at 18:00.
The sun is the bestower of light and life to the totality of the cosmos; with his unblinking, all-seeing eye, he is the stern guarantor of justice; with the almost universal connection of light with enlightenment or illumination, the sun is the source of wisdom.
On the occasion of this session of Meditations on the Tarot - a class that combines tarot theory and drawing by @mireinart - we will meditate on the card of the sun in preparation for the solstice, yule, Sol Invictus and December celebrations.
Then, we will create art inspired by this powerful archetype in order to visually translate our thoughts and what we take out of the session.
FOR WHO IS IT FOR?
Creative or not - the workshop is open to everyone who wants to have a go! No artistic or drawing skills are required. People are invited to participate even if they prefer to use the experience to produce other art forms such as poetry, music, etc. Materials such as paper, pencils, markers, crayons, oil pastels and other mediums are available - but feel free to bring your own.
The workshop also aims to favour relationships and connections between the people involved and create a community around the project.
