Creative Excursions with Rita

"I do not know much about specific artists, artworks or art history, but even still I find that gazing upon a piece that attracts me leads me into a rich experience about myself...and sometimes helps me work through what's on my mind."

Imagine spending time with visual art in a way that is creative and healing for you...

Looking for a mini-treat

…a retreat from stress and anxiety?

How about setting a foundation for yourself...

If so, let’s go on a creative excursion together…

What is it?

Guided Creative play + Mindful "unplugging": Creative Excursions with Rita is a guided four-part experience where the visual art is not just an object you are looking at but something alive that partners with you. The February 24th Creative Excursion with Rita will be focused on setting the tone for 2019. (No preparation or art experience required).

  1. PART 1: You will select a word that has some meaning for you

  2. PART 2: You will choose an artwork as a "conversation partner"

  3. PART 3: You will record your experience and what's next in a creative expression activity

  4. PART 4: We will debrief and share our experiences with each other.
