Community Building Projects
Children's Community Building and Art Auction projects are a wonderful way for children to learn about how art can come full circle. Developing and executing a classroom project as a team, auctioning the project to the community at large, and raising funds that directly benefit the school help students to connect to how art can build and support their community. I consult with schools or organizations, develop classroom projects suitable to each grade level, and assemble them into beautiful works of art. For the past 3 years, I have helped to unite communitiess, raising significant funds for the PS6 Children's Art section of their Annual Auction at Sotheby's NY, where a Rothko-inspired project was backed by donations from the Mark Rothko Foundation.
In a lesson or workshop, I focus on creating a peaceful, introspective environment, where the subconscious mind can take over, opening for Divine Guidance in the process of creating a mandala. Meditation, yoga, essential oils, and self-care tools are integrated into the experience. Developing technique, exploring new mediums, and revealing your own style and aesthetic are encouraged in an ego-free environment. I am happy to offer my services giving mandala workshops in yoga and wellness centers or retreats.
