Workshops for Artists
Bringing Life Skills Experiential Learning to the Arts
Using the life skills experiential model for learning, my workshops are intended to both educate participants on a specific skill while also using the group as a learning modality itself.
Workshops may run from an hour to three hours, depending on the attendees and restrictions placed on time. All workshops are adaptable - if you have an idea you'd like to bring to your organization, we can build a workshop to suit your specific needs.
My workshops are functional both in person and online. If you would like to book a workshops for your organization, please complete the form below.
