About the Event
Join us for our third (and slightly longer because it's awesome) round of this creative series, as we explore and invent new ways to play, dream and journal with watercolors, ink & pencil.
For most of us, the goal of artmaking is not to end up on the walls of a museum, but to insert a pocket of quiet reflection & creative exploration into our everyday lives. Over the course of eight weeks, we'll use the pages of our respective sketchbooks to deepen our connection to our outer worlds, tap into the richness of our inner worlds and maybe even begin to create some new pathways forward. Each weekend morning session starts with an exercise or two to add to your creative toolbox, and we'll share as a group what worked, what we discovered and what gave us a creative thrill or pause. (Worried about missing a session or two? We'll be sending out weekly emails with each week's exercises and mentioned resources to help keep us all together through the fall season.)
Whether you aspire to a daily art practice as a way ground and relax or to record your morning coffee or garden, we think A Daily Practice helps answer the never-ending question of how to keep going after you've started.
Having some experience with watercolors will be helpful but not required.
September 16th to November 4th (8 Sessions)
Saturdays 10AM to 11:15 AM
Some materials are provided. Participants will want to bring a watercolor-friendly sketchbook to the first session and have their own preferred watercolors, pen and/or ink after the first session to practice and use at home. Workshop participants receive a 10% discount to the shop throughout this class series.
