About School

The C.I.C.A.D.A. school offers courses in visual art, creative writing, hybrid art, and healing through the arts. Whether you are a novice or intermediate in your creative practices, this school will give you tools for artistic growth. These courses provide alternative education in creative arts for adolescents and adults who are interested in advancing their expressive methods. Frances Cannon, your experienced guide, works with individuals on short-term and long-term arts instruction, and also hosts group workshops in a wide variety of artistic mediums. She custom designs each course to the students’ desires and needs. Generally, these courses are based in the beautiful and vibrant town of Burlington, Vermont, but Frances is also willing to work with students long-distance.

 

The cicada is a golden, musical beetle, whose song has long served as a muse of writers and artists. The ancient Greek philosophers Plato and Socrates wrote of the power of cicadas to enchant mortal men into eternal worship of the three Muses. In North America, broods of cicadae remain in nymph form for thirteen to seventeen years, and then all at once a they emerge and form a vibrant chorus of song, perched in the high branches of trees. Consider this dormant form of the insect as a symbol representing an alchemical vessel of growth and repair, death and rebirth. As your guide, I will offer you tools and instruction in how to awaken from this state of rest into a more active and satisfying creative practice.
