  • Wednesday June 27 + Thursday June 28
  • 10AM-3PM
  • $35 WAM members/$50 non-members

 Participants will mindfully explore methods for cultivating inspiration and new ways of seeing. Using art-making and writing, two creative practices that inspire and build on one another, we will investigate the possibilities inherent in close observation, abstraction, and building on chance opportunities. Each morning a gentle movement and mindfulness-based session will prepare us to open to new possibilities. Writer and teacher Julia Ridley Smith will join WAM’s associate curator of education Terri Dowell-Dennis in leading this workshop.

Bring your lunch so that we can eat together during our break. A refrigerator and microwave are available at the museum. A certificate of participation will be provided and can be used for CEU credit with the prior approval of your school system.

Pre-registration is required. Contact Terri Dowell-Dennis at or 336-256-1449. 

Generous support from the Charlotte W. Toler Art Education Endowment enables WAM to keep workshop costs at a nominal fee.
