The Adult Education Team at the museum offered an exciting course in October, Creating Deities: Exploring Inner Guides of Strength, Love, and Insight, hosted by the dynamic and inspiring artist and educator, Janet Morgan.
Attendees primed their creativity pumps with Janet while tapping into a wellspring of timeless wisdom.
Together, we explored the archetypal power of Hindu and Buddhist deities in the galleries through dynamic movement, and by creating works of art that helped participants tap into their own inner deities of strength, love, and insight.
For the final class, Shyama (Julia Chapin) brought her harmonium and treated us to a Kirtan of traditional Hindu devotional music in the Bakhti tradition.
Shyama also composed beautiful original songs inspired by the works of art made by attendees. It was a magical evening.
We look forward to welcoming Janet and Shyama back to the museum!
