If your body could speak, what would it say?
The Tamalpa Experience introduces an approach that enlivens dialogue between body and imagination, life experiences and art making. Using movement, drawing, poetic writing, and improvisational performance, participants will tap into art's symbolic language to explore current life themes and generate new resources.
The Tamalpa Experience workshops are designed to give participants an experiential understanding of Tamalpa's work in movement-based expressive arts. We are excited to offer an optional Friday evening open house to start off the weekend with a special opening! The Tamalpa Experience workshops are recommended as an introduction to our training programs.
