The above is an image that I found of Queen Artemesia who was a warrior for the Persian people.I can change her into a warrior for peace, environment or however I wish.

Have fun exploring those themes by simply printing an image of an archetype to bring, or print an image of yourself to transform into an archetype on a journal page. Personal archetypes are the ones you create. Make one up! Or, no clue? Just come anyway and play and explore. You can find the most amazing vintage images online and just print a couple options for class. Whether you are relating to a queen or a fool, you can learn from your archetype.

No experience necessary. All supplies provided.
