This Saturday I am hosting my first Without a Net Workshop at Red Dot Gallery. I am pleased to offer this work to others, and if all goes well I hope to offer it in different venues. A short description is below, and a longer one is here. In the same vein, check out my new post on WithoutaNet.Blog.
Here is a short description:
In the spirit of my artistic explorations in my own paintings, Without a Net workshop will offer participants creative exercises in various artistic media that explore personal mind states and perspectives in a judgment-free setting. With humor and self-acceptance as touchstones, participants will explore their own mind states, both light and shadowy, to engender courage, promote self-honesty, and acknowledge the universality of human frailty. The practices will fuel creative thinking while helping to develop resilience and equanimity. The group setting enhances a collective, unifying experience that facilitates growth and understanding for both the individual and the group.
Exercises will include explorations in visual arts, written word, sound or music, drama, story telling, and other mediums. No experience, talent, or skill necessary. Participants will probably not go home with a work of art to hang on their wall, and no one will be asked to do anything they’re not comfortable with. Expect to laugh.
