Metamorphoses: a new experimental class!


Hello My Fellow Art Lovers- 

"As wave is driven by wave
And each, pursued, pursues the wave ahead,
So time flies on an follows, flies and follows,
Always, forever and new.

What was before is left behind; what never was is now;
And every passing moment is renewed.

Be assured, there is no death- no death,
But only change and innovation.  The sum of all things remains the same."

- Ovid, The Metamorphoses

 Persephone and the Pomegranates by Addie Hirschten

Ovid wrote a collection of myths called the Metamorphoses in the year 8CE.

 Daphne Transformed by Addie Hirschten

The tales are all about change.... how the characters of the ancient Roman gods and goddesses changed.

Ultimately Ovid was writing about how change is inevitable.    

 Surrender to Growth by Victoria Williams Steen

My artist friend, Victoria Williams Steen, have both made paintings inspired by the Metamorphoses myths.

AND we will be teaching a very special class together on the subject in March!

In this unique experimental class, we will create mixed media collage pieces inspired by stories found in the ancient Roman book of myths, Ovid’s Metamorphoses. Each session will start with a story, a meditation and a surprising project!
