NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Explore the healing power of art! This four-week session will draw inspiration from the Ogden Museum’s permanent collection and works currently on exhibition in Entwined: Ritual Wrapping and Binding in Contemporary Southern Art.
Artists investigated will include Sonya Yong James, Sister Gertrude Morgan, Howard Finster and others whose practices focus on the spiritual and healing elements of art-making and art objects. The course will also study historical resources relating to spirituality in art and neurological “bottom up and top down” brain processing. Learn how these concepts can inform your artistic practices, enhance creative flow and contribute to your overall wellness.
