Let artistic reflection be your Lenten discipline this year! This Lent, Viola Mayol will be leading a class on Creative Process.
Creative Process is a combination of writing and art making. Each time we meet we will begin with intention writing, a tool for focusing and preparing to be present to the art making. Intention writing is followed by art making (drawing, painting, simple sculpture, and mixed media) which will be the bulk of our time together. Art making is followed by witness writing, a reflection of the process. We will close each session by reading (if you wish) and sharing our writings. This art is concern about the process, not the product. The art made becomes a souvenir of the journey. Writing and art materials will be provided.
This class will meet in South Howel Hall at 11:30-12:30. Classes will meet on March 10, 17, 24 and April 7 and 14.
Day of Remembrance
Everyone is invited to accompany the Japanese congregation to the commemoration of the annual Day of Remembrance, which marks the anniversary of the signing of the Executive Order which led to the incarceration of thousands of Japanese-Americans in internment camps during World War II. This year's theme is "Never Again is Now."
The event is free of charge and will take place on Sunday, February 17, at 2:00 pm at the Chicago History Museum.
