Creative Practice as Resilience
Join Terra Cultura for a Virtual Skillshare on Tuesday, May 26th from 5:00-6:30 PT!
This generative workshop will be led by writer, visual artist, and educator Rebecca Nison, bringing together sketching, writing, observation, and listening to cultivate a sense of exploration, play, and resilience during these challenging times. Together we’ll work within a supportive, nonjudgmental environment to consider how creative practices empower us to process and give form to uncertainty. Participants will be invited (but not required) to share some of the work generated during our time together.
Come as you are. No art experience required! Have on hand:
- a pen or pencil
- some blank pieces of paper
- one piece of music that uplifts, soothes, and/or nourishes you
Be sure to RSVP above to receive the Zoom event link on the day of the event.
