アイリス と 色 Red and Blue exercise

Seeing myself through colors.

 



Iris Sullivan http://movingthesoulwithcolor.com/iris.php guided us through the color RED. Red is the color of our will. It is in the center of us.It has the tendency to form. And that is my challenge. Red in me wants to expand forming a shape. By creating gradation of colors we must break the form and let the color breathe.

Then comes BLUE, the conscious color that will be stronger in the periphery. We must blend in the colors where they meet but also must keep the darkest and purest color of its own.

This is a color exercise. We do not have a motif to work with.
After almost 3 hours of experiencing these 2 colors, we try to find a motif.
I turned my drawing sidewards and for the very first time saw a human figure, not only one but two.
Using white pastel and a bit of yellow for the brightest place, I drew in a woman and a child.
I have done this exercise many times in the past and always, every single time, struggled to find a motif. First time in 20 years I was comfortable with my motif.

What does this tells me? A woman and a child. It this woman me? What does it speak to me?

This will be my next challenge.

Why art?

Waldorf teachers believe that the human being is not just a brain - but a being with heart and limbs - a being of will and feeling, as well as of intellect.
To ensure that education does not produce one-sided individuals, crippled in emotional health and volition, these less conscious aspects of our human nature must constantly be exercised, nourished, and guided.
Here the arts and practical skills make their essential contribution, educating not only heart and hand but, in very real ways, the brain as well.
