Have you ever found yourself so focused on your art that you zone out- or rather zone in- and the world melts away? Like reading a good book or cloud gazing, art can bring us to a sort of meditation and focus. Join us in an exploration of a variety of materials that inspire this feeling. From origami, to fiber arts, embroidery, painting, drawing, and more, this intensive has a bit of everything that is visual arts. We will focus our attention and time on the materials that interest the group, and each artist will have the freedom to spend their time on the projects that they wish. This is a great opportunity to freely explore some new skills with experienced instructors.
