About the event


Have you ever stared at the images on a Tarot deck and wondered where those images came from? These images have a long, rich history – the story of Tarot is a fascinating tradition in and of itself, one that never grows old. In this class, we will look at Tarot from its beginnings in Renaissance Italy as a game played by Princes and Noblemen and its growth into the Post Modern phenomenon it is today. We will explore the works of artists from the Renaissance such as Bonifacio Bembo and modern sculptors such as Nikki de Saint Phalle, who created the Tarot Garden in Tuscany.
