Wren Ross | The Sargasso Sessions, Session 1: Workshop

Upstairs @ Modern West November 6, 2021
Upstairs @ Modern West $60 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

"Purpose: To cultivate dialogue that normalizes, validates and supports people as they navigate the new Covid-facing world using creative tools and a shared space. In the sessions we explore the ways the pandemic and its fallout have touched our lives by asking questions… What is the new normal? What does it mean to wear a mask both literally and figuratively? What have we gained by being separate and overwhelmed by the unknown? What have we lost that we’re happy to be free from? … And by furnishing answers, using an uninihibited connection to our own creativity by making marks, exploring literal deconstruction (ripping, tearing, cutting, obliterating) and reinterpretation (collage, sculpture, mapmaking), examining the colors and textures of our internal landscape, and learning to tune into and interpret the visual information we generate."
