It was a week ago that I flew to California to attend the New World Fair in Pasadena. This is the third fair of this kind that my friend Joanne Hunot and her guy Warren Cook has put together. The fair was held at the Pasadena Convention Center and featured a wide range of new age products, plus music, lectures, films, yoga demonstrations, a fabulous drum circle, a labyrinth walk, and...me!
I was the "art facilitator" and I figured that what that meant was that I would provide a creative experience to interested peeps that would be "mistake proof" and guaranteed to be gratifying. So I brought with me hundreds of images from my personal collage stash, hundreds of pieces of cut papers, and hundreds of words that I printed and cut out. Add construction paper and glue sticks and if you selected a few random papers, images, and words and stuck them down, you had yourself a beautiful collage!
I found it fascinating to see what images and words people put together and it positively warmed my heart to see how immersed in the process the participants were.
I got back home Monday night and have had a chance in the last few to days to rest and exhale, just in time for a visit from my fam!
