About this Event

This three- hour, hands-on workshop will help you reflect upon, plan for and analyze how to build an art collective that makes space for the individual child and the group. During this workshop Jamie will share strategies for creating a compassionate community of artists. Participants will exercise their art skills and Social Justice skills in the studio. We will explore use of aesthetics and the elements of art to create a common language in the studio.
