Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time. — Thomas Merton
Come find — and lose — yourself in artistic expression in a fun, accepting environment. Have you ever thought, “I’m not an artist,” but still yearned to be one? Christina Dauenhauer and Rachel Jaeger will help you tap into and nurture your inner artist in a safe, relaxed space. Together, we will explore various art forms, including painting, collage, photography, and writing to find a form of expression that best resonates with you. Inspiration for art is everywhere and we will search for our own personal, unique sources for our creativity throughout the month. The focus of these creative explorations will be the journey and play rather than the result. You will delve into and have the opportunity to expand your creative capacity and discover new insights about yourself. You will also have the chance to explore any blocks to creativity during open seat group process work. At the end of the program, we’ll celebrate our work together in an art show and performance.
The leaders welcome people of all levels of artistic expression to embark on this creative journey. Bring your digital camera or phones with cool/hip/nerdy camera applications (like hipstamatic) as you wish.
