What you'll do

Join artist Colette Wright Adams in a gentle, mindful meditation before creating your own handmade book filled with representational drawings. Colette will guide us through a simple breathing practice for about 5 minutes before you begin your drawing "assignments". You will have guidance from Colette in what to look for as visual material to be used when we settle in to create our own illustrated folded book. The creative prompts (guidance) for drawing accommodate both novice and expert levels of skill. Colette enjoys creating relaxed approaches to representational drawing. Helping you to "see" and make choices as artists. In the past themes for drawings have been "Leaves", "Tools" and "Household objects". Non-artists and artists alike will enjoy this experience in a relaxed and welcoming home studio. A glass of wine and light snack is included!

Colette

I've been a professional visual artist for 35 years+ with a BFA from University of Michigan and a MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). I am the founder, director and lead curator of the Uptown Arts Center (www.uptownartscenter.org) I'm also a long time student of meditation and New Thought philosophy. In addition, I've made my living and supported my family by working as a real estate broker. Ha, ha, happy to talk real estate too! I love exploring ways to engage people in drawing and socializing that is all about process and not product.
