Join this week-long journey through five elements of our world—Earth, Water, Nature, Fire and Mineral—as found within the West African Dagara Cosmology Wheel. Together we’ll investigate these aspects of the world and, based on our experiences, create artwork.
Reflect on EARTH as our place and create art to reflect this special space. Notice that we are WATER and make paintings inspired by our inner watery nature (we can play in it on a hot day, too!). Explore NATURE by capturing images that we will print as photographs. Appreciate and respect FIRE with an Eagle Scout/Fire Master and create drawings in charcoal. Build rock (MINERAL) sculptures and share your hopes and dreams for your life and the world. We will end the week with a celebration of our art!
