Transformation through the Arts, with Aida Ayers

  • Ecumenical Buddhist Society 1516 West 3rd Street Little Rock, AR, 72201 United States (map)

In this workshop we will use a few different mediums as we push individual boundaries, use materials and techniques that are unfamiliar and challenging.

Through a guided discussion and mixed media art methods, we will identify and remove the blocks that prevent us from achieving what we want in our lives. The practice of creating art teaches us to relax, take chances, research, embrace mistakes as lessons, and receive what we desire.

Through the process of creating, we are able to move into a vortex of solutions and possibilities. By the end of the workshop, you will have created an amazing work of art, and also faced the fears or questions which were holding you back.

The workshop is open to people 16 years and up, all genders, religions and backgrounds Cost per participant $35.00 per person. All proceeds are used for the artist's workshops at Hawkins Women's Prison. 

Each person should bring the following supplies: scraps of tile, colored glass, marbles, found objects, broken tableware, ceramic trinkets, etc.
