Spirit Portraits, Auragraphs and Automatic Drawings: A Spiritualist Art Workshop with Medium Susan Barnes
Date: Saturday, Nov 5th
Time: 11:30 am  1:30 pm
Admission: $40
Location: Morbid Anatomy Museum, 424 Third Avenue, 11215 Brooklyn NY

Spiritualism's storied past extends into the history of art. Important creative figures such as William Butler Yeats, Wassily Kandinsky, and Edvard Munch were inspired by Spiritualism. Recently, the roots of abstract art have been retraced to include Spiritualist artists Hilma af Klint and Georgiana Houghton. Most famously, Andre Breton and members of the Surrealist movement co-opted the Spiritualist technique of automation and their use of the trance state.

In this workshop, visual arts professor, clairvoyant medium, and spirit artist Susan Barnes will cover the varied history of Spiritualist art, and demonstrate how the practice of mediumship can play into creativity. A series of exercises and activities will assist participants in making their own spirit art. Areas to be covered include precipitated paintings, spirit portraits, auragraphs and automatic drawings. Supplies will be provided, but participants are also encouraged to bring their own tools. Art experience is not necessary.

Susan B. Barnes, Ph.D, CSNU, is a former professor who has taught at the Rochester Institute of Technology, among other institutions. Author of eight textbooks in the fields of visual communications and internet/social media, she is a certificate holder from the Spiritualist National Union. Dr. Barnes teaches internationally and resides in Lily Dale, NY, where she also operates an art gallery.
