Spring 2021 (April – June) Digital Season
Can you believe it has been a year since we launched our digital programs?!? I’m sure we are all looking forward to the return of in-person programs, but I know the incredible successes we have had exploring this digital platform together as we connected and created this past year.
Members, I encourage you to try something new this season. Do you fancy yourself a visual artist only but would like to grow confidence in public speaking? Give improv a try! Are you a musician and would like to continue to explore your song-writing abilities? The creative writing course would be a great place to develop those skills further. The idea is to learn and practice skills, connect with peers and professional artists, and have some fun. This past year has been challenging for us folks living with mental illness/substance use disorder. Committing time each week to exploring the arts and belonging to a creative community can go a long way.
Here is a quick overview of what we are offering this season:
- 12-week Open Studio April 5 – June 28, Mondays 1-2 PM
- 4-part series called Instructor Talks! during the month of April
- 4 multi-week arts training courses in Creative Writing, Watercolour, Improv, and Photography
- Launching our collaborative member zine Manifesto
- Songs from the Willow recording update
How to express interest:
Willow members, please read the arts training course descriptions below and email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know your first and second choices. The Open Studio and Instructor Talks! do not count as choices and are available to all members, simply let us know via email if you’d like to receive the links.
