Slanguage will host a series of art classes on Saturdays co-taught by Slanguage’s co-founder Karla Diaz. These classes will feature sculpture, drawing, painting, and mixed media, and will follow Slanguage’s arts pedagogy anchored in critical thinking, social responsibility, and community building. This series of workshops is for adults.
This week’s workshop focuses on meditation and painting as ways to process
trauma and will be led by artist Yogi Raghubir Kintisch.
Rahubir Kintisch is an artist, educator and yogi. Kintisch teaches Kundalini Yoga, meditation, and art. Kintisch’s interest as an artist is to open conversations about how we access and interact with the subtle realms; how spiritual practice and art practice are one and the same. Another part of these conversations is how as artists, we have a moral responsibility to share our sensitivity and skills with the planet in any way we can that uplifts and transforms community, the environment, our children, and each other. As yogis, we practice the tools and technology to become aware of our own human condition and to raise our own consciousness. As yoga teachers, it’s our responsibility to instruct and help others to do the same. In this way, we can assist in the growth and development of one person who, in turn can contribute to the cumulative happiness of community. As a teaching artist, Kintisch takes life experience, including spiritual practice, and applies it to teaching as an arts educator.
Slanguage is a socially engaged artist collective hosting a series of virtual family workshops at Compound, focused on the power of creativity. This series aims to create a fun, safe, and creative space to provoke engagement, new ways of thinking, empowerment, and community connection.
