Geometric Art Workshop

Upcoming Workshop: 

12/28/2014 @ Stinson Beach, CA  9a-12:00p  (Registration and details)

Cost: $50

Have you looked at my geometric artworks and wondered where the designs come from and how the heck I did them so large and so perfectly?

Perfect! Come to my upcoming workshop focusing on geometric art and learn all about it.

Here's the general flow of the gathering...
- I'll do a talk about topics related to the designs:
    - where do they come from?
    - what is it about them that is so compelling?
    - any questions the group may have
- Go out to the beach and I'll show you my technique
- Break into teams during which you'll have a chance to practice
- Transition into working on the final design
- Take some aerial group photos of our creation!

I hope you can join us. Its a magical experience to see the process unfold- even more magical to be inside the design, creating it! 

This will be a small group outing, limited to 15 participants, registration is important. 

Preparation: Being that its San Fran, be prepared for winds and chilliness. Also bring water, snacks and a sun hat.

'Capturing Impermanence' Calendar

This is a 12"x12" calendar containing 12 beautiful photos that tell the story of the evolution of my artwork from when it began 10 years ago to where it is today. This is the most economical way to have twelve 8"x12" images on your walls. It is a date-less calendar, only containing a weekday grid. Thus it can work for any year.

The Art of Being: Nature and Transformative Art-making [Dec 6, San Franisco]

The Art of Being Human: Portals

The Art of Being Human outings are a series of intentional group art-making, each focusing on and exploring a different and pertinent aspect of human embodiment based on what is juicy in the collective. These are explorations in the fundamental beauty and tension of spirit in form that is the human experience, using the vehicle of creative expression via Andres's magical beach art and collaboration with the Earth and each other, with facilitation from Lawrence Kampf and Andres Amador.
'Portal' 2007, Stinson Beach, CA

The theme for this next outing: "Portals"

We'll explore individual and collective experience of Portals. What is coming through you? What are you moving through? From where are you exiting and to where are you entering? The artwork we make will reflect this theme.

2014- Dec 6: "Portals'  
When: 2-5p
Where: Daly City, CA
Cost: $75 with limited partial and full Scholarships available
Registration and details
Bring who you are, no other experience necessary. Andres and Lawrence will begin with an introduction of the work, lead centering exercises and meditations (breathing and movement) leading into a group discussion of the day's theme. There will be an opportunity to share your own experience - verbally or silently. The day will culminate in the collective creation of a large scale beach art design and the inevitable erasure by nature and the tides.
Location Note: location is being determined- most likely near Daly City (5 minutes from SF)

The Facilitators
Lawrence Kampf is a mindfulness and embodiment guide. Lawrence's website and mailing list.

Andres Amador is an artist who leads large-scale group art-makings. Andres' website and mailing list.

Workshop Gift Certificates

Looking for the perfect gift for the hard-to-shop for person in your life?

Well, here's something that would surely appeal to them- an opportunity to create a large group artwork on the beach!

This gift is good for any workshop (according to first-come space availability) for the next year. (I anticipate at least 8 workshops this year.) This also locks in the price for the workshop, which will likely go up.

New Collaborative Project Seeking Sponsors

I am working on a new collaborative project with a very stylized landscape photographer, Jason Henthorne

We've had our first outing, getting to learn about each other's styles and needs. And we're gearing up for our next get-togethers. It' looking good!

We are seeking private and corporate sponsors to help us. If you have interest in learning more I would gladly show you a presentation document. We are offering archival, limited edition, signed prints as 'thank you'. Contact me.

Mini Doc for Uplift Entertainment

I was profiled for the cable station Uplifting Entertainment, a station that focuses on- yep, you guessed it- uplifting content. I appreciate its uptempo yet calm pacing and I like that I am speaking energetically and not ponderously (I can get pretty critical of how I come across when speaking). I'm even happy about the design I did (though there weren't shots that showed the whole thing from higher up- I suppose those didn't turn out so well). The crew was a joy to work with and I thank them for creating a lovely clip that I am psyched to share!
