Please note, this program is full.
Clay – The Essence of You
What is that essential element, without which you would cease to be the person you take yourself to be? Let’s find out. Using clay, you will sculpt an intuitive expression of the one aspect that is uniquely you. You will allow that piece of you to emerge from the clay. Pamela will guide you with discussion and reflection, and as your intuition takes dimensional form, you will uncover truths of the irreducible and essential you.
The Expressive Wellness Series
Join us and venture to the place where art meets intuition. This returning series is for artists and non-artists, who wish to deepen their self-awareness, find stress reduction strategies, or navigate life transitions through the creative art making process. Creating art in an intuitive fashion provides access to the abstract and intangible aspects of self. It allows an experience of truthful process and a sense of daring and strength where something new and unknown can emerge. Through discussion and reflection, Pamela Lape will guide the group through nine sessions exploring different mediums and themes. Making art and reflecting on it in a safe space without judgement or expectations, provides participants with new tools for approaching life in a more effective and satisfying manner. Experience the growth and self-knowledge that can come from accessing our inner selves hidden beneath the daily routine.
Workshops are developed by Pamela Lape LP, LMHC, an expressive arts facilitator, fine artist and practicing psychotherapist with 35 years’ experience. Hands-on art projects are facilitated by artist and Museum educator Julie Garvin Riggs.
Open to artists and non-artists alike.
Classes may be taken individually.
