During the compounding national crisis in which we live, we are resurrecting this meaningful class to fulfill the need to make visible our voices through art. The class is designed to bring your visual art practice into focus while gaining insight and energy through a collective interaction during this stressful time of separation and activism. Intended for women of any creative persuasion, this course will merge the practical, spiritual and technical aspects of making art part of your daily practice. Together we will address various issues inherent with the creative process from idea generation and finding inspiration to setting up a functional, sacred workspace. Students will work on their own projects in any medium from painting or drawing, to book arts, printmaking and mixed media. Our supportive classroom community via the zoom platform will offer both one-on-one mentorship and group interaction including hands-on demos, interactive critique, and slide-shows.
When we sink both hands into the sand with empowered intention, might we find our well within? – Denese Sanders
