> 22 May 2021 MONTHLY DIALOGUES WITH ARTS [let’s play!] |advanced group
Hide and seek, blind man’s buff, playing tag, and many more… Children all over the world like to play games. In Expressive Arts settings, play is also a central topic that closely connects to time, space, ritual, and communication: sometimes framed by clear rules, sometimes completely free and experimental.
In this session, we will go on a journey back to the playgrounds of our childhood and explore the richness and variety of children’s games in different cultures together with Claudia Blacha. We will also play with colours and different art materials using the „frottage“ technique. We will use Zoom as a playground and do some exploration of playing with and without rules.

LONGING FOR CONNECTION
Have you ever felt like the more time you spend online, the more lonely and disconnected you become? Technology has changed our lifestyle massively in many ways. While we can connect easily with friends far away, somehow we lose the depth of being with each other here and now. Online interaction can feel shallow and unreal. Sometimes, it lacks meaning and leaves us with the uncomfortable feeling of emptiness.
We believe that the online connection can be used efficiently and with awareness to establish meaningful relationships with people around the world.
Let’s reconnect with ourselves and others through a real experience of art-making!In this international online meetup, participants will connect through Skype and make art together with the support of two expressive arts facilitators. We will enjoy the flow of creativity and imagination using different art forms.
The ability to make art is what we all share and what brings us back to ourselves. Art can help us to express and communicate, to listen, to appreciate little things, and to be together!
THROUGH ARTS WE RECONNECT
replace technological isolation with a true connection
relax into art-making
practice how to let go of judgement
receive the gift of true attention from yourself and others
We will use basic art materials that everyone has at home to make art and have fun together! We will focus on easy tasks and look at the art pieces in the form of a dialogue.
We cannot wait to meet you in person,
Sarah & Joanna
