Join Michael and I on a collaborative Bali workshop.
"Temple of Dreams"
A 5 day workshop
March 11-19 2009
In this class, "TEMPLE OF DREAMS" Judy Wilkenfeld and Michael deMeng are teaming up for a Balinese art workshop experience. Our concept was to come up with a workshop where students could experience both of our unique teaching styles and create a unified piece of art from the process.
It was important for us to design a project that had a definitive relationship to Balinese culture. One of the most profound images in Balinese culture is the Meru; the multi-tiered, pagoda style temple. It symbolizes the world (or cosmic) mountain and is composed of several odd numbered tiers (no more than 11) that reach toward the sky. This is the form we will be using in class…though admittedly, much smaller, so that it could be transported in a suitcase.
In class we will be building a mixed media/assemblage meru that will have the ability to be opened at each tier. Inside students will create a sacred space for dreams and wishes. The interior space will be created using the methods of assemblage, collage, and painting. Perhaps it is a home for your dreams, perhaps it is a home for your sacred thoughts. In the end you leave learning a variety of techniques from two artists to create your own Temple of Dreams.
