Workshops and Activities
Creative and applied arts offer a form of communication beyond the realms of formal language, allowing for a valuable means of self-expression. It is an exceptional form of inclusive learning and connecting that promotes an appreciation and elevation of difference instead of ostracizing it. Art making exposes us to an abundance of world-views and celebrates the identity of an individual and community alike. Applying therapeutic art praxis, I am interested in sharing the immense healing qualities embedded in craft processes, and the internal validation, wellness, and creative freedom art can grant us. As much of my own practice is focused on social awareness and interconnectivity, I would like to explore the many components that make up our identity and encourage collaborative group participation and community projects to create temporary / permanent art installations that are accessible to the public and make meaningful art objects that relates closely to members of our younger generations' everyday lives. Material explorations will consist of textile, ceramic and other mixed media sculptural mediums: I am interested in instructing textile wall hangings, clothing personalization and garment making (weaving, sewing, embroidery, dyeing, image transfers) as well as ceramic mural and hand-building techniques for abstract and representational sculptures (glazing, slip drawing, mold casting).
