Finding / Making Meaning: Inaugural Workshop



Ritual and Remembrance

Saturday February 22nd, 2014  1 – 2:30pm

Celebrant Lisa Hartley and artist Shannon Browne present a workshop offering an imaginative, playful and thoughtful approach to creating a Celebration of Life.                                                             
Contact Lisa                                                     

This workshop looks at simple things we can do to infuse a deeper sense of the person     you have lost, into the Ceremony at the end of their life.
We consider what is typically done at a memorial, what’s been done historically and how to help you tap into more personal rituals that bring meaning to a Celebration of life.
An intentionally created Ceremony reflects the person who has died and helps those remaining, grieve.

Cost: $25.00

Art Mixer: May 25, 7pm – 10pm Life Drawing & Live Music…

“A Map of the Heavens” by Martha Jablonski-Jones

Our “Art Salon” event last month was so successful, we’re offering another one to celebrate  “New Altars for Old Gods”, the current exhibition of paintings by  Martha Jablonski- Jones.

Join us for an evening of live music, and life drawing, or simply to enjoy Martha’s wonder-filled work.

We’re honoured to have guest musician Peter Jack Rainbird of Courtenay, B.C. performing between 8 and 9:30pm.  Three sketching sessions are scheduled, with poses and movement provided by Yoga instructor Adrienne Wills. (During the breaks, ask Adrienne about the Yoga classes she’ll be offering this Fall at Artemis!)

Tokens for drawing boards & materials can be purchased upon arrival for $5.00 per session.

We’re delighted that Martha Jablonski-Jones will be attending the Art Mixer to discuss her work and offer her expertise to participants throughout the evening.  Her vibrant acrylic paintings in “New Altars for Old Gods” offer an exhilarated investigation into the lingering presence of the sacred in our secularized world.  The exhibition continues at Artemis until May 27th, Tuesday through Sunday, 12 to 5pm.
