Drawing From The Centre at Dunbar
Saturday, June 15, 2013 from 10:30am-12:30pm
Dunbar Community Centre Lobby, 4747 Dunbar St., Vancouver
Gabriella Minnes Brandes, and Pia Yona Massie, aka ½ of the Sassafras Collective, will lead a collaborative physical awareness drawing workshop drawing on Alexander Technique and being in the creative flow. Alexander Technique focuses on understanding and exploring our habits and how we can change them to more fully occupy the present moment. Pia studied with National Living Treasure Shodo Master, Morita Shiryu, in Kyoto Japan. Gaby is the director of The Alexander Technique Centre in Vancouver.
We will help you draw from the core so that the marks made on the page become an embodied dance moment. Please bring any materials you feel like using. There was a famous Zen master who once used a sleeping cat when he couldn’t find a brush. That cat awoke. And the shodo was great too.
