This event was the follow-up to the very exciting 1st "Active Imagination" for boys workshop in November, where a range of high-energy arts activities provided each person a chance to embody a personal hero and confront its enemy with the support of the rest of the team.
This time, joined by Phil's friend and fellow expressive art therapist, Eric Subido, we activated our imaginations playing movement and sound games and pretending to be people and things. One boy shared his passion for Greek mythology by telling the story of Hercules. This all resulted in the creation of a whole civilization, a city called Scarlett-Victor-9, wherein each boy developed a fully-costumed character and an original building (Check out the photos, below). Eric helped create infrastructure (roads & power lines) and then played a boy-designed "visitor" character for the group's improvised 8-minute movie.

This event provides more experience and feedback to plan for on-going Active Imagination groups in the New Year!
Active Imagination is a full-bodied, interactive arts experience created and led by Phil Weglarz, MFT, REAT and is available for both children and adults, individually for personal development and in groups to enhance social skills and expand methods of self-expression.The emphasis is always on creativity and collaboration, rather than technical skill. Come & Play!
Glitter & Razz Productions is partnering with Phil by hosting these programs and sharing their years of experience. (Thanks, Lynn & Allison!)
