Minimum 4 students. Maximum 12 students.

Where did our sense of play and curiosity go? Why are we at times timid to be different, to move our bodies to music, to put pencil to paper, brush to canvas? We all started out drawing the same stick figures, exploring our world with a sense of wonder. The 9-5 grind and even general adult responsibilities can deplete our creativity, emphasize conformity, and discourage us from taking risks and trying new things. This series invites participants to come with an open mind and eagerness to play. Bring your own sketchbook and enjoy playing in a variety of art media, working with an assortment of creative prompts, and sharing ideas in group discussion. 

 

Creativity & Movement (w/ Resident Artist Lindsey [Lola] York)

Saturday, 10/8 from 10:30am-12pm

$35 Non-members

$30 Members

From our first breath to our last, we are all moving bodies by design. Just as our cells birth anew each day, we are all inherently creative creatures. Inside this safe container, movement is used as a lens to explore our internal and external terrains – for the simple joy of being in our bodies and as a tool for creative unblocking.

Please bring a journal or sketchbook, all other supplies will be provided.

All bodies welcome. No prior dance or movement experience required.
