Painting and Expressive Arts

Painting and Expressive Arts

As a visual artist and expressive arts educational consultant, I have brought the power of the arts to groups in various settings, including schools, clinics and businesses.  I have created and administered educational packages and courses combining the arts and cultural richness through a Hellenic lens. These include:

  •  mythology and folklore, with an emphasis on the Homerian epics
  • literature and writing classes focusing on Hellenic themes and writers and Greece as a literary trope and Greek-inspired poetry and poets
  • exploration of the Greek dramatic tradition and drama workshops
  • the Mediterranean diet and healthy cooking demonstrations
  • traditional herbal medicine and tea infusion workshops
  • Orthodox spirituality and meditation, especially through the Hesychist tradition and the prayer of the heart
  • plein aire landscape drawing and painting
  • encaustic painting
  • iconography
  • traditional handcrafts and production techniques including weaving, rug making, embroidery, soap making, silk threading, yogurt and cheese making, wine making
