This is an interdisciplinary approach to the discovery and development of your creative spark.
There will be daily and weekly prompts to begin your own personal creative excavation and
practice and special workshop times in Confluence Studios twice a month. The practice consists
of mindfulness, attention, art-making, inspirational reading, and journaling in order to re-engage

our creative muscle memory. The course is designed as a year-long exploration but may be
joined for a single season or even for just a month.
Times for meeting will be announced after we know who is interested and what times work best
for the majority.
