“Fire in the Belly”

In these 90-minute workshops, we will visually explore the “Fire in the Belly.” Following a brief lecture, using a medium of their choice, participants will create three 9”x12” drawings, 15 minutes each, on the fire that burns them. What burns you? Could the fire that transforms you into smoke and ash be the same one that brings forth your light and energy? We will use the last 30 minutes of the session for group discussion.
