Barbie Redux Aftermath

Monday, November 11th, 2013

I needed a full day to recuperate from the energy put forth for the Barbie workshop. So much goes into planning and preparation and then, being fully present to help others manifest their ideas. Its the best sort of energy output because it comes back doubled by the creative energy of the people participating. The workshop was held the same weekend as the OJai art and film festival so the town was a buzz with activity and things to do. This may have impacted enrollment as there were only four participants making for the smallest workshop I have ever given. That said, I could not have imagined a nicer, more willing group of creative spirits. What fun we had!!! While one imagines that she is imparting knowledge of some usefulness, truly the questions and observations made by those participating is equally “teaching”. If that makes sense. One thing I learned is that the class needs to be two days, as no one finished, they did get far, but there needs to be more time to fool around with the painting and embellishing part of the activity, and for certain pieces to fully dry. Only one person broke for lunch which made for a long day of six hours. All were troupers!
I have two photos to share and when the artists send me images of their finished works I will post them here.

I am so grateful for an afternoon of playing dolls with like minded creatives, food for the soul…
