My theory on learning ANYTHING is to have fun in the process.
I have a lot of beginner students in my regular tarot workshops along with more experienced, some of who are stuck with certain elements or lack confidence at times. YES it is hard to 'remember' everything in tarot. I've found that experiencing it through artistic pursuits enables you to step into the cards!
This Workshop (held last night) enabled the students to create a framable Tarot Canvas. We worked closely with intuitive interpretations along with the many traditional layers attributed to the selected cards before setting off on our artistic journey.
None of my students described themselves are artistic and none had attempted collage before. We covered basic collage and art theory to get us on the road!
A few examples of students work:
The High Priestess
(I ADORE her to bits!)
(seriously, how wonderful! and LOVE love LOVE the 'dog')
student: "I am really drawn to the feeling of early spring"
the student was excited to find a background that encompassed the changeable feel of nature
I LOVE the way she melded the crocodile and woman together!
As I said... I KNOW it's easiest to learn anything when you are in a blissful state of fun and so I have created a new series of workshops "Creating Your Own Magical Deck" which begins 8th November in the Frenchs Forest area of Sydney. Suitable for any level of tarot, metaphysical study or artistic ability (stick figure drawers are my specialty!)
Each week we will journey into a different aspect of tarot and oracle and learn ways to incorporate these into our own deck. On our artistic journey we will find ways to express our knowledge in new styles and mediums. There will be a Journey Journal (an art one no less!)
