How do we learn to ask questions that help us get closer to making art that is uniquely our own? How do our lives influence what we make? How can doubt become inspiring? These questions and more are explored in demonstrations, unique exercises, and one-to-one conversation that lead participants to a deeper understanding of their work. With an open heart and a seeker’s spirit, all are welcome in this shared search for meaning.
