Wednesday Workshops: Crafting an Artful Life
February 1 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EST
Are you striving to live your life in a way that supports your mind, body and spirit? This series is designed to explore some tools and ways to craft an artful life and live with intention. We will meet twice a month to learn about and develop ways in which we can work in our journals, create art, move our bodies in supportive ways, and surround ourselves with things we make that bring us joy in an inspiring and supportive community.
- Seed ideas and prompts will be given each week, which we will ponder, expand on, and experiment with.
- Whether we’re sketching, writing, moving or crafting…. you will find that you’re expressing yourself in your own way and finding those things that resonate with you.
Registration is required through Eventbrite.
Please register for each date that you plan to attend.
Each date will have a different focus:
