Workshop Overview

This is a multigenerational workshop intended for adult/child teams of two enrolling and participating together. In this workshop we will investigate our inner and natural landscapes through artmaking and experimentation. By starting within and moving out in thoughtful, supported ways we are the nexus of the ripple effect as our feelings, thoughts and actions ripple into our communities. How can slowing down and noticing details in nature lead us to understanding ourselves and each other? How can the rhythm of depicting something in multiple art forms reveal the unexpected? Beginning with drawing, then moving into multi-media play (collage, watercolor, charcoal) on day one, and then exploring printmaking on day two, we culminate in visual conversation as prints become collaborations. Children must be accompanied by a participating adult.
