OPENING TO YOUR CREATIVITY, with Nicole Salimbene
Workshop Session I: Sign up HERE
Wednesdays, October 11 - November 15, 8:30am - 10:00am
Nicole Salimbene leads participants in a series of writing and art exercises introducing the practice of keeping a visual journal as a tool for reflection, self-inquiry, and meditation. No prior art skills needed. This is not an art class to learn traditional representational art skills, but an invitation to open to your creative potential by exploring the internal and external symbols and metaphors that are guiding your life and to experience the power of art making.
Enrollment per workshop is limited to 12 people. We will work at tables in this location.
Workshop fee: $165.00 (journals and materials are included with the fee)
