Youth Art Workshop Celebrating Basquiat
In honor of Black History month we celebrate the historical figures, ancestors and legendary creators of our joined history.
Of the greats in art you cannot forget the iconic crowns of Jean Michel Basquait, the self portraits and the colors that charge your mind with wonder. In this family workshop we ask you to think who in your life needs to be reminded of their crown? All of us!
So in this workshop you will work as a family to create a scene of crowns for each family member.
Take your family portrait on site, print it out and create those images using the language of Basquait. Is your dad your superhero? Is your dog your favorite creature? How can you incorporate the artistic expressions of Basquait in your family portrait? Decide together who and what you want to honor and create.
When you’re all done look at how you’ve come together to create a piece expressing what unity and creativity can produce.

Join us for a special workshop to experience the intersection of your own psyche through your body, in a small-group environment with Jane Clapp, the creator of Jungian Somatics.
Due to the space requirements for the experiential nature of this special workshop, spots are limited and this one-time experience will likely sell-out.
4 CEUs included for Utah Mental Health Professionals
Join Jane Clapp for a 4-hour learning experience to be introduced to the 6-pillars of Jungian Somatics: a foundational overview of this emergent and potent body of work that explores the inseparable relationship between somatics and Jungian psychology.
Be introduced to the anatomy of the psyche and how it is mirrored in the body. Experience practices that Jane has evolved from 20 years of working with movement therapy and somatics, and training in Jungian psychology.
The Six Pillars:
1. The process of embodied active imagination to explore unconscious material via the body through intuitive movement and symbolic image creation.
2. Principles of archetypal somatics and trauma as an embodied spiritual injury.
3. The neurobiology of spirituality and the embodiment of the Self.
4. The neurobiology of creativity and the unconscious psyche.
5. Somatics of transference and countertransference and the shared field via the unconscious psyche.
6. Introduction to the somatics of dream interpretation.
Don’t forget to join us for the Immersive Talk on Friday, March 10th!
