Live Well Art Workshop

Live Well Art Workshop, taught by Melissa Knowles, brings people together through art, photography, and singing! Come explore your creative side with engaging activities that can easily be integrated into your daily lives. We'll make abstract photography and non-representational paintings inspired by artists influenced by nature and those who used their creativity to support healing. We'll experiment with cameras and media, including watercolor, ink, charcoal, and soft pastel, individually, in pairs, and as a group, using singing to encourage flow in our art.

You won't need any prior experience – just some enthusiasm to explore how creativity might deepen your sense of well-being and vice versa. Primarily for seniors and children 10+, but open to all ages. Registration is required, email or call 508-693-9433

About the instructor: Melissa is a photographer and educator who focuses on new ways of seeing - to make art a modality for healing. Her interdisciplinary approach weaves educational, therapeutic, mythological, and philosophical research to incorporate insights and practices that encourage an artfulness of being. She has travelled across four continents to work with schoolchildren, teachers, children's rights activists, artists, filmmakers, healthcare professionals, healers, anthropologists, and indigenous communities, as well as individuals with illness, disabilities, and trauma, including women exiting trafficking.
