Workshops for Artists

Bringing Life Skills Experiential Learning to the Arts

Workshops

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.
