Inner and Outer Worlds: Developing Community through Art and Writing
Date: 5:00pm - 8:00pm PST September 26, 2012 PDT Location: Lewis & Clark Graduate Campus
Lewis & Clark Graduate Campus
This workshop is a community-building art activity, in which participants share parts of their inner and outer worlds, using the medium of a self-portrait. This low-risk art activity incorporates personal symbols, provides a springboard for writing an “Inside/Outside” poem, and creates a forum for giving positive feedback to each other. The end results are an enhanced appreciation of each other and a stronger sense of community.
Credit option: This workshop is part of the “Rethinking Schools Series”. Each workshop in the Rethinking Schools Series can be taken individually or in sequence, with the option to purchase 1 semester hour of continuing education credit after completing all 5 in the series. Registration for credit will occur at the last workshop in this series.
