Day #2 When

Saturday March 13, 2016 from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM EST


A Life in the Arts: Forging Your Path:

Presented by both Debi Varvi and Nic Tharpa Cartier. Choosing to follow the artist’s path can be a difficult decision. There is so much pressure in modern society to follow the crowd and do what others have done to find success. Too often we sacrifice our creativity in favor of stability. But looking at life from an artist’s point of view invites us to challenge this way of thinking, drawing from our own qualities and quirks to create a truly unique expression and enrich our lives. In this class, Debi and Nic will offer a series of exercises and ideas to help you tap into your creative potential in all aspects of life. Artistic living is socially and politically engaged, vital, and essential to the health and happiness of the human family.


Composition and Technique with Debi and Nic:
In the year 2016, henna art is well on its way into a great renaissance. With the explosion of creativity offered by henna artists and enthusiasts, new ideas and techniques are constantly coming into play. Diverse skills in design creation are essential for henna artists to approach any situation with confidence and creativity. Without losing sight of a firm grounding in classical composition and art fundamentals, Nic and Debi will lead you through practice in a variety of art techniques tailored to work in henna. You’ll learn how to create henna designs in more than one way, carefully crafting your compositions to achieve diverse and exciting effects and bring freshness into your work.
