Turning Our Stories Into Art - Workshop: Nov. 12 w Bernice Lewis @ Scarritt Bennett

Turning Our Stories Into Art - Workshop: Nov. 12 w Bernice Lewis @ Scarritt Bennett

Nov 12 - 9a - 3p

Do you want to express yourself artistically but can't figure out where to begin? Designed for the creatively curious as well as experienced artists, this workshop will focus on using personal stories as a means of creative expression and spiritual exploration. All faith traditions welcome. The goal of the workshop is to connect you with your artistic side and a community of other artists, and to come away with a piece or a work in progress.

Bring a journal for writing, tools to create in your chosen medium, (instruments, paper, paints, etc.) and a story to tell. Some simple art supplies provided. Limited number of pianos available. Comfortable clothing recommended.
