And, you don’t need to think of yourself as an artist to explore this free-form art practice. Doodling is not about what’s “good” or “best” or necessarily about making anything in particular; it’s more about holding the pencil, or the marker, or collaging on paper and seeing what happens! No worries - there will be prompts to give you ideas to get you started so you won’t have much time looking at the blank page. Each session will be an opportunity to explore a variety of materials and approaches to art making in the context of community. Join Eleni for a few warm mornings of creation, complete with tea and cookies.

Our workshop will focus on the benefits of discerning the "jewel point" of a larger narrative one wishes to relay.

During the November 5th session, we will examine poems that use jewel points to covey larger stories. Participants will then have two weeks to write their own "jewel point" poems, which will be workshopped by the larger group on November 19th.
