Meditative Art Making is a six week course taught by Sarah Tourjee. The class is open to all genres as well as artists of other mediums who are interested in working with text. Here are a few words from Sarah about the class:
“I think of art making as a meditative act in itself. When we create something we land in our bodies, we land in time on earth. I wanted to teach this class as a way of intentionally approaching writing from that perspective, and in order to create optimal conditions for doing so. I think of writing, like meditating, as a radical act, directly in opposition to the currents we live in.”
The class is offered sliding scale and starts next Thursday, October 22. Course info below.
Meditative Art Making
How can we bring our creative practices to the present moment and engage that moment directly? The class will incorporatemeditative exercises and weekly assignments. This will be a generative and discussion based course. Students’ individual artistic practices will guide our discussions, allowing us to support each other across disciplines. We will end with a public celebration and performance of created work. This writing workshop is open to artists of all mediums and levels of experience who are interested in working with text.
