Feel Something, Make Something: Workshop with Caitlyn Metz - August 2 & 3

Friday August 2 - Saturday August 3 Friday 5:30-7pm, Saturday 9am-4pm Central

Nourish your artistic practice with this reflective, connective workshop. Join us to learn how to build up a body of work from tiny moments of time, focusing on process over outcome.  

Friday evening: get to know Caitlin through an artist talk about how their creative practice has held them throughout their life – how when you’re focused on the process over the outcome you can utilize five, ten and twenty minute chunks of time to both self-soothe and build a collection of work that you’re proud of. We’ll have a brief Q&A and mingle to get to know each other. (optional drinks afterwards) 


Saturday: Reflect on the prior evening, Q&A over tea and coffee. Then we will alternate throughout the day with group and solo activities, guided prompts (to help you get clear on where you are, what time you have, what work would be the most supportive, how to build up a body of work from tiny moments of time, etc.). This day is a container for you dig into your own practice.


Questions/Prompts to Consider: 

  • What are you hoping to get out of this workshop?
  • What does your current creative practice look like? 
  • What blocks you from having the creative practice you desire? 
  • If Caitlin could address one thing specifically, what would you want that to be? 
  • Is there anything you want Caitlin to know?
