Attended chakra painting workshop at Sivananda Yoga Retreat, Bahamas. The chakra painting enhances meditation and balancing of the energy centers. It was really enlightening to do art completely outside the realm of my typical interests and techniques. Thank you to our teacher, Mavis.

Hilma af Klint exhibited through April at the Guggenheim Museum has changed the way I look at art history and the world. Kandinsky is typically credited as the first abstract artist - painting the invisible realm. As it turns out Hilma af Klint , a Swedish woman, was painting pure abstractions inspired by spirituality at the turn of the century long before Kandinsky. I wonder how many other women artists have been invisible — written out of art history? I felt so connected to her beautiful paintings — the spiral shapes and spiritual symbolism that fill the Guggenheim museum are awe inspiring. So much fun sharing the experience with Pearl Rosen Golden and Robin Laban - both amazing friends and artists. (Photos taken by Pearl.)

Staff development workshop at pollock krasner house with middle country school teachers. Following tour and demonatration of visual literacy questioning techniques for students, teachers tried their hand at drip painting. I wonder how the emotional climate of schools might change is more students were encouraged to express themselves through art rather than be scrutuinized by standardized tests and endless hours of homework?

07/11/2018

Blessed with time for painting this summer! I often start with a word that is “embedded" into an abstract design on a 9 x 12 inch paper. I then enlarge the image with a projector onto a canvas. The larger scale painting changes and evolves as it is painstakingly painted. I like to play with perception -- some viewers easily read the words and others see the painting as a purely abstract design. In Imagine That! programs we also encourage people to speak about their own individual interpretations of paintings. See more art at www.joyceraimondostudio.com — Joyce Raimondo

Daily inspiration! We made tactile artworks at The Art Barge. Our creations were experienced using our senses of touch smell, and hearing; rather than sight. I created a mobile using fragile materials such as bees wax, egg shells, and thread. As participants touched each others' artworks a sense of intimacy and vulnerability was shared.Great project for all ages!
