You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
Illuminating Our Stories: A Creativity Lab
with Susan Porter and Kathleen Hirsch
In this day-long workshop, we will celebrate the un-mined stories that live in us, using writing prompts and a rich array of visual materials to explore emerging themes and narratives. Our process will combine different media, including color work, mark-making, visual journaling and writing. Students will explore various story genres through prompts, individual creative time, and sharing. By day’s end, participants will have completed a simple handmade book, one story, and several working drafts that they can complete at home.
