Embodiment is a form of mindfulness where we explore and honor the wisdom cultivated through movement, the body, sensory perception, and mind-body connections. This course is inclusive for all bodies, forms of mobility, and artistic experiences. We will utilize two interdisciplinary frameworks: on some days, we will engage in movement activities and create artwork about our movements, and on others we will create art that actively utilizes our movement and vice versa. The class will consist of yoga and movement exercises, interdisciplinary art workshopping creative writing, expressive drawing, painting, and more! For example, invent a movement phrase; then simultaneously practice the moves and paint the phrase with a giant paint brush! This class is appropriate for kids that can work independently in a group of 1 adult to 4 kids.
