Beliefs Envisioned: Understanding Hinduism and Buddhism through Art | April 26, 2014, 10:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Join the South/Southeast/West Asia (SSEWA) Outreach program at CU Boulder to learn more about Hindu and Buddhist Art in South and Southeast Asia. This daylong workshop for secondary social studies and art teachers will draw on the rich history of visual arts to share the basics of these two major traditions—their origins, their interrelationships, their philosophies and beliefs. We will discuss major deities, historical figures and ritual practices of different Hindu and Buddhist traditions in clear, accessible language. We’ll also take a look at temple architecture in India, Burma, and Bhutan, to see how various traditions create, sustain, and understand their particular sacred space. Additional teaching resources and references will be provided. For registration information, email Kunga.Lama@colorado.edu.
