Body Mind Figure Character: Movement for Artists    The Hands

A multicultural exploration of the use and misuse of the hands in art, design and daily life. Functional anatomy and techniques from different disciplines will be explored. Open to artists, artisans and amateurs alike.

Body Mind Figure Character courses weave together historical lectures, physical exercises and artistic experiments (both analog and digital). Understanding the relevance of human movement across disciplines expands our repertoire of available actions and gestures and generates new possibilities for art, performance and design.

This course will draw on the Feldenkrais Method of somatic education, Aikido, Body-Mind Centering, Indian dance, Laban movement analysis and other practices.





We're sorry, this class has been canceled.

Helen Singh-Miller is a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner, Editor of The Feldenkrais Journal, and Visiting Lecturer in Art, Film and Visual Studies at Harvard University and Studio for Interrelated Media, Studio Foundation, and Liberal Arts at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
