Science Tarot Announces Second Printing

May 30th, 2013

Science Tarot Announces Second Printing

It's happening: Science Tarot is going into its second printing!

We are thrilled to announce that Science Tarot is now printed right here in California, where the deck was created. We are especially proud that working with a local printer allowed us to create printed colors more vibrant and more true to the original artworks. The cardbacks' chalkboard green is more real, the reds of stars looks nearly radioactive, and the faces throughout are more lively.

The new printing also offers excellent cardstock, a new gloss with a better grip for shuffling ease, and the same well-loved, nearly bullet-proof box. All content is identical to the first printing, including the booklet of 100 pages still included within. Only the colors are adjusted to better reveal the artwork!

This 2nd Edition of Science Tarot should be available in July.

Thank you so much for all your support and interest!
Stay connected by liking us on Facebook for details as they develop, and visit our website at http://www.sciencetarot.com

Here are a few more details:


Art Workshop - Symbolism and the Subconscious in Art making

Learn how to tap in to your own inner mythology to create art using meditation, visualization, and dream journaling. You will be learning about the power of symbolism and the subconscious in image making and expression, with a focus on the mandala, using acrylics, collage, and Prismacolor pencils. Some discussion and examples of combining the use of digital with traditional mediums as another element of mixed media also presented. We will be spending a portion of our time in instruction/discussion and the rest in hands on creating each class.

Instructor:
Janelle Schneider
4 session class
dates: Saturdays, TBA
time: 11:00 - 1:30
where: Art Works Downtown, studio 20 in San Rafael
Cost for the 4 sessions is $220 -
SUPPLIES:
please bring your tabletop easel, a drawing board, and a blank journal book for recording your dreams
PAINT, PENCILS, PAPER, CANVAS, AND BRUSHES WILL BE PROVIDED

About the artist:
Janelle Schneider is a mixed media artist as well as a digital artist for feature films. Janelle has had a life fascination with mythology, symbolism, and the role of the subconscious in art and art making and is currently studying both Shamanic and Druidic art/spiritual traditions. She is influenced by the writings and drawings of Carl Jung and the writings of Joseph Campbell, as well as the works of artists Frida Kahlo, Rothko, and Georgia O'Keefe. She's inspired by visions and dreams, indigenous wisdom, and the natural world and its forms. Her use of dreamlike colors, symbolism, sacred geometry, mandalas, and depictions of the divine feminine acknowledges the relationship between light, sound, and matter, and honors the inter-connectedness of All of Life.

Her work with the Mandala is a love affair of the heart. A circle filled with possibility, symbolism, stories, and healing, the Mandala is a reflection of the Outer within the Inner. Focused intention, invoked in the sacred space of the Circle, through the use of symbol and color, a mandala is a meditation manifest in form. Her mandalas can be used as concentration points for meditation practice, or to bring that vibration into a specific space, and to just be enjoyed as art.

Drum Making as Meditation Class

Drum Making as Meditation Class

"Drum Making Gathering for Healing, Love, Life, and Peace"

I'm currently in the process of arranging a drum making weekend workshop with Elizabeth Theriault, and would REALLY LOVE IT if some of you might be interested in taking this workshop as well.
Elizabeth's drums are exquisite, and this workshop truly promises to be a transformational experience.

http://www.drumspeak.org/index.php?p=1_5_Drum-Making
http://www.blessingways.net/Mended-Heart-Drums/Mended-Heart-Drums.html

Here is a description from her flyer:

"As we gather to make our drums, we will also explore using drums for healing, balance, and connection within a ceremony setting. The workshop addresses the spiritual, emotional, and physical aspects of Drum making. Drum practices woven within the structure of the workshop are 4-fold and will include usage as a medicine song tool, as a shamanic tool for journey work, as a meditation tool, and for mental focus with I Ching drumming. We will also weave our time together with storytelling, songs, and sharings from the heart. Each participant will take home his or her own beautiful wood frame and leather drum with drumstick."

Elizabeth will be flying in from Hawaii, and as soon as at least 8 people express an interest a date can be set in either Aug, Sept, or Oct. The class will be held in Northern California, near San Rafael/Larkspur area. The location and date will be set as soon as at least 8 people (the class minimum) contact me to let me know they are interested.
Let me know if you think you'd like to attend, and/or find out more information.
