Learn to draw and create tabletop labyrinths through a variety of simple artistic methods. Explore the differences between spirals and meanders, mazes and labyrinths to discover the essential elements for adapting designs or creating one of your own!
Taught in a classroom setting, students will receive a workbook highlighting the history, classification, and methods for drawing traditional or one-of-a-kind labyrinths. Students can apply new skills in the creation of finger labyrinths, artistic projects, or formal plans for a large-scale installation. This is a great opportunity to learn about a diversity of designs, explore how and why certain patterns resonate with people, and gain the confidence to explain and introduce the definition and history of these beloved symbols to others.
