Slanguage Virtual Workshop: Meditation and Drawing Our Stories

May 8 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Slanguage will host a series of art classes on Saturdays co-taught by Slanguage’s co-founder Karla Diaz. These classes will feature sculpture, drawing, painting, and mixed media, and will follow Slanguage’s arts pedagogy anchored in critical thinking, social responsibility, and community building.

This series of workshops is for adults.

This week’s workshop will lead participants into a 10- 15 minute body movement and focus meditation. Participants will be guided to draw specific stories from their lives, and will discuss creating circles of sharing as important for creativity, communication and social justice. This week’s workshop will be led by Ciana Lee.
