Going Hands-On! Creativity and Sonoran Seasons – Winter

Saturday, January 22 at 1:00 pm (PT)

At Tohono Chul Park, the Sonoran Desert displays its own brand of creativity as it moves through the annual round of its unique five seasons. In this 5-session workshop series — one class each season — this ever-changing and evolving desert is the model for the development of your own vocabulary of creativity, allowing each of us to engage with the process of art-making, celebrating our innate imagination.

Each interactive, hands-on session explores a variety of expressive arts from collage and movement, to poetry and journaling. No prior art experience or “talent” is necessary; the focus is on the process of art-making, not the end result. Some amazing side effects include stress reduction, energy stimulation, expanded awareness and just plain fun! KathyAnne Whittemore MA, Tohono Chul Park docent and Holistic Counselor trained in the Creative/Expressive Arts, is your leader on this exploration. Each workshop builds on the previous, so your participation in the whole series is welcomed; however, each session can also be a stand-alone experience. All materials included.

Single session – $50 members/$65 general public; all five sessions $200 members/$260 general public. Sat. Jan 22, 2011 1-4 PM Ed. Ctr. #2 at Tohono Chul Park. Call 520-742-6455 or visit www.tohonochulpark.org
