TASTE AND VISION - An artistic and culinary journey
*Final date TBA
Art and food. What could be better? This very special half-day class is an exploration of personal creativity and a celebration of culinary adventure.
Led by professional artist Jenessa Goodman, we will discuss our creative paths and processes, talk about how to get out of creative "ruts" and deepen our own artistic practices. Jenessa will teach a series of unique exercises designed to expand and broaden the mind's creative scope. Class will include snacks, dialogue, drawing, and painting with gouache. After the art instruction, we will enjoy a delicious and healthy lunch catered by award-winning, Cordon Bleu certified local chef Lauren Wilkenson of Groove Food. Recipes will be provided! This class is intended for artists of all skill levels. The only requirement is a willingness to explore creative practice.
