Come and explore pastels and the Butterfly Effect with us. You'll be experimenting with 3 different types of pastels in this meeting as you draw butterflies. You will have the opportunity to try out oil pastels, soft pastels and chalk pastels to see the differences in each of them. Chalk Pastels are wonderful for blending with your fingers since they are soft and powdery. They are a highly tactile medium that can be used to express subtle and subdued emotions. They can get a little messy and therefore can be used appropriately to express messy emotions.
“The Butterfly Effect is an unforgettable story about how our world is an incredible life of permanent purpose. It's about how every move we make and every action we take, matters not just for us, but for all of us...for all time. In 1963, Edward Lorenz made a presentation to the New York Academy of Sciences and was literally laughed out of the room. His theory called the butterfly effect stated that a butterfly could flap its wings and set air molecules in motion that in turn would move other air molecules - which would then move additional air molecules - eventually becoming able to influence weather patterns on the other side of the planet. For years this theory remained an interesting myth. In the mid 1990s, however, the butterfly effect was proved to be accurate, viable and worked every time.”
Imagine the whole of your life changing to such an extreme that you are unrecognizable at the end of the transformation. This is what happens in the month long life cycle of a caterpillar becoming a butterfly and this is the deep symbolic lesson of the butterfly. She asks us to accept change in our lives as casually as she does since she unquestioningly embraces the changes in her environment and her body. The butterfly calls to us to keep our faith as we undergo our own transitions. She also wants us to know that our life matters. Each decision we make matters. Each action we take matters.
This meeting will be from 12-4pm.
