Introduction to Drawing Celtic Mythology, May 17-June 7
Learn how the haunting and magical gods, goddesses, heroes, magicians, and landscapes of the Celtic realms can be given creative expression and re-interpretation in a class for beginners and enthusiasts at all levels. The principles of formal composition and color theory will be applied to this inspirational mythic and iconic imagery.
Leslie Rich is a singer-songwriter from Belfast, Northern Ireland. He has been the principle songwriter for Celtic bands, A Little Of The Ready and Hounds Of Finn and currently fronts the rock band, Leslie Rich & The Rocket Soul Choir. Leslie will share the stories, images, songs and poetry that created HIS history of the North.
Following up on the talk given on Family Constellations and Healing Immigration Trauma given during Irish Arts week, we are offering a more in depth introduction to this powerful process.
Students will explore self-expression through sensory and figurative language in multiple poetic forms, including persona poetry, section poems, and narrative poetry. We will examine the work of W.B. Yeats and other contemporary poets. In this course, poetry is approached as a playful experiment. All skill levels are welcome; if you’re having fun, then you’re doing it right!
