May 12- June 30, Fridays, 2:30PM- 4PM

Class Description: As artists and makers/creators, much of our work is done in solitude. We go deep inside ourselves, swim in our inner landscape to create our imagery. But the connection to community is also necessary. It is an age-old tradition for artists to meet together in a local cafe, bar or studio to share, trade ideas and collaborate. For this Artists' Cafe/Collective, we will come together to build a community of artists to enhance our practice. We will develop shared goals with the intention of supporting each other, inspiring each other and enjoying learning from each other. This collective is intended for artists who have already developed their skills and are looking to enhance their practice. Although primarily developed for visual artists, writers are also welcome. For some this might mean getting 'outside their own head', or finding the inspiration to create work more regularly. All goals are welcome and will enhance the group.

This collective is open to practicing visual artists with intermediate to advanced skills. Writers are also welcome.

Materials: No materials required. Artists may bring their own materials to use.
