Service Description

Rise & Release: PRIDE Edition Wednesday, October 12 - 10am-noon Ages 18+ Each month, we hold space for various groups to share and process emotions together in our art classroom with low-cost expressive art classes. Together, we'll allow our feelings to rise through writing prompts and the creation of a guided, personalized group project as we allow the opportunity to reflect and release these emotions from our bodies with large body movements and heavy intention. After creating, we'll revisit the piece, focusing on releasing feelings which are keeping us from living our best lives. Participants are welcome to share their experiences openly or process privately through the art-making process. These classes result in a sense of shared community, while producing beautiful artwork as a team. No art experience is necessary, as we will be focused on the process over the final product. ALL are welcome. Please come ready to get your hands, and possibly your clothing, dirty. (Gloves will be available for those who would like them.) Women continue to bear the brunt of harbored feelings, and we hope to help our female friends process difficult emotions in this class. Whether you're harboring hurt in your heart over a person who mistreated you (in any number of ways), are struggling with the recent changes in laws, are feeling the weight of being a woman and all that entails, or any other relatable or personal journey, we invite you to join us for this very special day of rising and releasing, together. This class is facilitated by Candy Canning (she/her) and Sam Guenthner (she/her), both professional female artists and fierce feminists. All supplies are provided. Water bottles are encouraged and layered clothing is recommended, as temperatures in our large building may be difficult to control. Special accommodations are available, and can be requested when booking. This class may be cancelled/rescheduled if a minimum of 5 people is not reached. We'll reach out via email in that case. This low-cost class is made possible by generous donations made to our Art Start Fund and scholarships are available. If you'd like to support programs like this, visit our sponsorships page to make a monthly or one-time contribution. Thank you for helping us hold space for (y)our commUNITY!
