Virtual Workshop:
The TAZ Method | New Joint
Thursday, June 10, 2021 5p EST

In a two-part virtual workshop, Elena Ailes and David Sprecher will guide participants through a series of thoughtform exercises. The first half of the workshop will lead participants through exercises that attach shape, line and color to language and meaning, with varying results. During the second half of the workshop, participants will be taught to render a small addition to their left index finger. The resulting sculptures will make lasting souvenirs.

Participants should come prepared with drawing materials: paper (any kind), and a choice of mark making tools.
