Power of Imagination    reflection 

with Andrey Tamarchenko                                        

Thursdays 6:00pm – 9:00pm     adults                                     8 classes $400

The holographic space of our imagination is the submerged temple where the images are formed. This course invites you to explore your own inner landscape – a sovereign territory unique to each individual, full of wonders, challenges and potentiality.

Power of Imagination calls forth and honors images created in the deep psyche by directing the flow of energy from the deep interior out onto the canvas. Inner splinters of sorrow, heartache, or hidden joy expressed in visual language, transform on the canvas into works of unique power and beauty regardless of the skill level of the artist.

 

Andrey Tamarchenko is the founder and artistic director of element 22.

Mr. Tamarchenko combines a comprehensive insight of artistic alchemy with a classical sensibility of fine art drawing and painting in which he became immersed during his recent 5 year sabbatical in Italy. In 1996, Andrey founded and for 10 years served as the director of Nandi School of Art in Montclair, guiding towards maturity a generation of young artists. Currently he also serves as the artistic director of Vistanuova Art Campus in Italy and Studio+ in Staten Island, NY. Andrey’s caring, committed and open-hearted approach to teaching art reflects more than 20 years as a guide and facilitator allowing hundreds of people of all ages to experience the magical power of their own creativity. His educational methodology offers accessibility with ease to students on every level, both the beginner and advanced.


The Image Speaks Workshop

Card One (1)

     With Dr. Judith Schafman and Andrey Tamarchenko

Sunday, February 22nd, 11AM – 6PM

101 East Main street, Little Falls, New Jersey 3rd floor

Entrance off the parking lot on the side of the building

Workshop fee: $135. All art supplies are included.

Out of the deep primordial mist of your own psyche comes the Dream -on a nightly basis you receive direct transmissions from your inspired inner kingdom with its own landscape, dream inhabitants and stories.   These are psychic emails not to be deleted.

And please do notice – you are not making them up with your will, determination and personal agenda.  They have chosen you, are related to who and how you are.  Playful and free they beckon you ever forward in search of deeper meaning.

By drawing, painting, doing dream work and sharing, we will delve deep into this hidden inner territory, making it visible to the naked eye through artistic alchemy and imaginative approaches to dream work. In this way we will discover what the dream creatures want and need in order to become whole, full of color and life in both your painting and in your life.

Perhaps you are given a half-formed image, sort of remembered, hazy and messy, neither centered nor clear. Yet its heart is beating and it is standing at your door asking you to reveal it in its full glory.  Can you converse with it, then paint it in some way? Will you criticize or judge it or lay an artistic expectation on it? Will you choose to assist it? Can you nurture and amplify it? Embrace it? Follow its message?

In this workshop we will ” deep sea dive” into a chosen dream, speak with it, and, then through the alchemy of artistic expression, give the dream image a life, voice and place in this world as a work of art.

Together these two strands of creative self -expression – Dream work and Artistic Alchemy – present a most potent and nurturing approach to your own personal development, mapping out a pathway to go further once the workshop has ended.

NO ARTISTIC SKILLS NEEDED.  Bring a dream image, an inquiring mind and a playful attitude.

Dr. Judith Schafman has offered dream work in therapeutic, group, and workshop settings and is the author of Embracing Your Inner wisdom: An online Home Study Classroom in Dreamwork, and a series of articles on dream life entitled, Dream Work Tales.  She is a trained Gestalt practitioner, dream worker, artist and spiritual director. As an enthusiastic traveler in her own and others’ dreams, Jude’s work always supports people in discovering a deep connection to their own inner wisdom.    www.judithschafman.com

Take a leap with your own creative spirit in“darkness into Light” a multi-arts event on the evening of Saturday, November 15th.

Presented by Element 22, this multi-arts collaboration under the direction of visual artist Andrey Tamarchenko, multi-instrumentalist John Ehlis, and vocalist Laurence de Seve will be staged on Saturday, November 15th, beginning at 8:00pm, inside Fletcher Hall located on the grounds of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Montclair, 67 Church Street, Montclair.

Tonight’s performers also include Alison Hoornbeek (photography/projections) and Bill Ylitalo (woodwinds/gamelan).

These visionary artists will share with the public darkness into Light”, an improvised program inspired by the rapture of light as it penetrates the darkness of a cathedral or a cave, as it buries itself in the deeper recesses of the Earth and then like a Phoenix re-emerges triumphantly under a brush of an artist or blooming anew inside the photographer’s lens.

This past summer, Tamarchenko, Ehlis, de Seve, Hoornbeek and Ylitalo along with a dedicated group of sound and visual artists joined forces for a live performance of “Inner Spaces”, a celebration of Art and Music, Nature and Soul, held inside the former cement mining cave known as “Widow Janes Mine” in Rosendale, New York.

Their current project, “darkness into Light”, further explores the concept of reaching deep within ourselves, illuminating our true nature and engaging the greater community in artistic expression.

This spontaneous multi-arts event invites audience participation, specifically in either drawing or painting.  Some materials will be provided, but feel free to bring your own supplies and work station.

Doors will open at 7:15pm.   Entrance fee $12.00 (donations for supplies are appreciated)

Come in and observe, or feel free to draw or paint with others in this inspired atmosphere.

Saturdays in Montclair with Paul Weingarten

Painting and Drawing LaboratoryPaul

10:00am − 1:00pm (teens and adults)

3 hour class (9 sessions) – $450

The intention is to provide an environment for enthusiastic self-discovery within the context of those universal values that have been a consistent foundation for fine artists throughout history.  Students will unlock the potential of paint and will explore means of expression, enhancement of craft, and the underlying elements related to color composition, form and drawing.  The attempt will be to demystify the process, while gaining an understanding of the open-ended challenge that fine art presents.  Figure, landscape, portrait, and still life will be pursued.
