Meaning of The Orphan Archetype

The orphan archetype refers to a recurring pattern or symbol found in literature, mythology, and psychology.

It is the personification of a character who experiences separation or deprivation from a parent, family, or community. The orphan archetype can represent feelings of isolation, vulnerability, and the search for personal identity.

Additionally, it can also signify resilience, resourcefulness, and the capacity for growth. The archetype has been identified in various cultures and might be interpreted differently according to the specific context and perspective.

It has been explored as part of different psychological theories, such as analytical psychology and archetypal psychology, to understand the human psyche and the ways in which it shapes behavior, perception, and communication.


What techniques will I learn in this course?

This is a big project and has many techniques.  You will learn how to make your own textures, and paint onto paper to tear up later. You will be doing some stencil, hand painting, dry brushing, assembly with wire, beads, found objects and more!

Will I need special equipment?

No special equipment is needed.   A heat guns is a plus or use a blow dryer.

Where can I buy my ssupplies?

I provide a downloadable supply list with links to where I typically purchase my own supplies.  Many times, Amazon has what I need. I do my best to keep your cost down as I know art supplies can be costly.

About how long will it take me to complete this project?

This is an intense project with many layers.  It took me about 2 days to complete this project.  Some steps need time to dry and those can take up to one day.  Take your time with this painting.  Its one that I truely felt connected with and plan on making more like this.

Is there anything else you teach in this course?

I do show you close ups of making certain stiches by hand. You will also do some stapling which I just love the effect from doing this.
