Active Visions of Tarot
with Sonia McNally
11 session course, Tuesday and Thursday mornings 10.00-12.00 from 12th January to 16th February
In this course, Sonia will guide you through making a creative portfolio using the major arcana of the Tarot. She will lead you through the process of drawing and active imagination in each session, to engage deep personal understanding and knowledge of the cards, working through the major arcana, two images per session. Observational drawing will be used as a starting point to deep dive into the meanings and individual understandings of the cards. The course is suitable for all levels of card readers and artists. Beginners will gain observational skills in art and card-reading; more advanced students will understand nuances and develop their creative skills and practice. You can use art materials and tarot decks of your choice. You are invited to attend as many sessions as you can and missed sessions will be recorded and made available to all participants. The twice-weekly format is designed to create an atmosphere of immersion in your creative process and in that of the group, as well as the opportunity to journey with the symbolic images on a regular basis.
Early booking is advised as places will be limited.
