Community Teach-In: Art and Creativity

The Vashon Island Time Exchange holds teach-ins approximately 6-9 times a year.  The events (so far all virtual) are an opportunity to get to know others in our community and to share knowledge and skills.  The April Teach-In will also be a celebration of our Island's creativity and the many artists who live here!

More Info about the Presentations:

Practicing Iron, with Hannah Hirsekorn 

Human history is built and rusted through iron’s use and misuse. But iron is an elemental building block of this planet, at the center and throughout the Earth. From ochre foraging to iron casting, Hannah Hirsekorn will discuss her metal arts practice and the interwoven organic and inorganic deep time narratives of iron. 

The Healing Power of Art, with Corinne Lightweaver

The role of art making in healing is increasingly capturing the medical profession’s imagination and the general public’s interest. What are the possibilities for using the art making process to heal the body and the mind and to communicate the inner experience? Corinne Lightweaver will discuss the role of art making in her healing from breast cancer and mental illness. 

The Art of Seeing, with Caroline Rockey

In this mini workshop, students will learn the art of inquiry to explore drawing and painting a meaningful animal. Students can participate, watch, or experiment with their own ideas. We'll use art as a way to bring us closer to beauty, dropping into the present moment. Caroline's creative camps and art are at Paperwings.

We are excited to meet and learn from these three Island artists. Please join us for an inspired morning! RSVP BELOW.
