These sessions introduce art-making as a tool to connect to the present moment. No previous experience, special materials, or skill level is required.


Métissage |  - 

Join us for an evening of mindfulness, writing, and collage as we introduce métissage as a way to connect with yourself and others. Métissage is an arts-based research method that weaves or braids together different accounts of lived human experiences (Hasebe-Ludt et al., 2009; Hasebe-Ludt & Leggo, 2018; Burke & Robinson, 2019). At this session, you will be invited to participate in mindfulness meditation, writing, and collage exercises as a way to explore the present moment, your identity, and/or your relationship with the land.
