Martha Mysko from Creative Pier recently introduced me to some of the current workshops being offered at her facility, which is located in New York City.
Creative Pier is a studio space as well as an art gallery, and they offer regular classes, workshops and events. Their purpose is to promote art making as a way to explore the self, raise self esteem, and make connections with others.
Here’s some of the upcoming events:
Giving Art: Prayer Flags
Thursday, September 25th
6 PM – 9 PM
Take an opportunity to learn new ways of making art and to expand your creativity, while expressing kindness and sharing it with those in need. In this workshop we will create prayer flags, whose origins come from Tibet where the flags are made to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom.
Every prayer flag made in this workshop will be sent to a patient diagnosed with cancer, whose hopes for healing will be supported by your good will.
The intent of this workshop is to welcome positive life changes and to acknowledge that all beings are part of a greater cause.
$35 to participate. Art materials are included. 15% of the proceeds will be donated to Gilda’s Club, and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
Art for Bliss Sake
Begins Wednesday, October 1st
6:30 PM – 9:00 PM
$285/6 sessions or $50/1 session
Unlock the key to your creativity and find your unique voice!
Explore and expand your creative expression in a mixed media workshop, using collage, drawing, sculpting and writing. Liberate your creative potential from any censoring by focusing on the process rather than the product, and experience the delight of authentic self-expression and personal exploration.
Judy de Zanger, author of the Tao of Creativity, invites beginners as well as practicing artists to play and experiment with a variety of materials and processes, discovering and enjoying the creative spirit within.
