The Art of C.G. Jung

5 consecutive Wednesdays, 6:30–8:10 pm. Begins April 10, 2019

Instructor: Maria Taveras, LCSW

Inspiration for this course derives from the book The Art of C.G. Jung. Just published in November, this new book is not about Jung the analyst, but about Jung the artist.

For the very first time, this book documents the full extent of Jung’s creative imagination as a visual artist. It comprises examples of Jung’s visual art both before and after The Red Book. It includes sketchbooks and pencil drawings from Jung’s childhood, pastel and watercolor landscapes from his youth, carved and painted wooden fantasy figures, ink and colored pencil mandalas, gouache visionary paintings, and stone carvings. Essays in the book situate Jung’s artistry in the context of modern art (Dada, Cubism, and Surrealism) and describe his own personal art collection. The Art of C.G. Jung will be required reading in this course. (Copies will be available for purchase at the bookstore of the C.G Jung Foundation.) Participants will bring their own copies of the book to each class meeting for discussion of the weekly assigned readings. Finally, participants will also apply their own creative imagination by doing hands-on, in-class art exercises (mandalas and fantasy drawings) under the guidance of instructor Maria Taveras, who is not only a Jungian analyst but also an award-winning practitioner of “Dream Art.” Fee for art materials: add $15 to tuition fee.
