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!

Filmed by CCTV

I was filmed recently for the program 'Full Frame' by CCTV. I love it!

Sometimes I listen to what I say when I am filmed and I feel a cringe inside. Perhaps its the editing that seems to reposition thoughts, or the video action doesn't quite seem to match what I am speaking about. Not so with this film. The clip takes its time with the material and interview, allowing the events to unfold spaciously. I'm even happy with the piece I did that day (not always the case!).

Playa Painting Aerial Zoom- 'Shine'

This artwork was made for our boy, Kavi Vayu, who had not yet been born (he's one month old today!). We dedicated it to him as a message that could serve him throughout life. In it we depict a mandala within a circle. There are many other circles floating about, each of which, it is inferred contains its own mandala. The visible mandala is sending out rays of energy which touch and spread out amongst the other circles. It signifies how each of us is the mandala sending out our energy into the world, illuminating and affecting all those around us. The best we can do in this life is to be the powerful expression of whomever we are. This is a visual representation of that idea.
