Workshop Series

 

Spontaneous Creations w/ Hallie Morrison

Saturday, November 21, 12-1:30pm

via Zoom
Meeting ID: 819 2788 4860
Passcode: 163028

SINCE IT HAS MOVED TO ZOOM, YOU NO LONGER NEED TO PRE-REGISTER FOR THIS WORKSHOP.

In the spirit of creative and communal wit(h)nessing (Ettinger), I'd like to share a healing artistic method. Opening with a conversation around creativity, fear, and individuality, we'll ground ourselves with a meditation, and move off into independent and spontaneous creation in any 2D or performance medium. We'll show, share back, or perform to the group (optional) and practice responding to each creation without critique/judgement to liberate ourselves from the institutionalized ways of responding to "Art." This method of practicing authentic and spontaneous creation intends to facilitate cathartic, creative experiences for people that can make "art making" truly accessible in our everyday lives. 

Supplies needed:
Blank paper
Drawing materials--pencils, markers, crayons
Paints and brushes

 

 

Rhythmic Art Making w/ Hallie Morrison

Saturday, November 21, 2:30-4pm

via ZOOM
Meeting ID: 861 7370 3118
Passcode: 797470

SINCE IT HAS MOVED TO ZOOM, YOU NO LONGER NEED TO PRE-REGISTER FOR THIS WORKSHOP.

We'll explore "rhythm" in visual art making, as a method for turning off our "inner critic," going with the flow, and creating works of art from meditative and trance-like states. We'll use circle songs to each create a "voice" within a collective piece, listen to basic rhythms while creating independent works, and create a musical work without sound all within, an open studio format.

Supplies needed:

Blank paper

Drawing materials--pencils, markers, crayons

Paints and brushes
