Jenni House/ Free workshop- Art is Hard

This event took place on Thursday, August 23, 2018 at 5:30pm
Jenni House

Nadine Sander-Green is the Jenni House artist in residence for the month of August. This workshop is part of the Jenni House Artist Residency Program. FREE Event Making art on your own can feel like an emotional rollercoaster. Join Jenni House Artist in residence Nadine Sander-Green for an open conversation about the artistic process. The workshop will allow participants to tackle the mental blocks that hold us back from finishing the projects we care deeply about. How do you keep creating when self-doubt gets in the way? How do you stay on track when the only person you are accountable to is yourself? And what should you do when the desire strikes to throw your manuscript in a bonfire? Nadine will talk about her own experience of writing her first novel and open up the floor for others to share their stories. By collaborating, participants will leave with a renewed sense of the true urgency of their own craft. It's not necessary to identify as an artist to participate in this conversation. Anyone interested in deeply engaging in any sort of project is encouraged to come.
