Syncing cultural conversations with the natural seasons, the Embodied Season Workshop Series seeks to give participants opportunity to think about their ways of being as they intersect with seasonal rhythms and innovative ideas through the process of making. Each workshop session will be a collaborative pairing of a creative mode of expression and a person doing good work in our community (with interests ranging from theater and social policy to photography and education) to prompt participants to live into the rhythms of nature through art making. Each class will be led and facilitated by renowned Knoxville artist Ashley Addair and previous collaborator Amelia Peterson and is open to women and men of all ages.
Let the barrenness of winter, with its days of long shadows teach us how to live close to the heart and not at odds with it. This workshop will be a practice in exploring power—beyond its egotistical use—toward a soulful approach. Participants will be guided in producing an imaginative self-portrait.
$5 from each ticket purchase will go towards workshop scholarship positions for under-served creatives in our community.
