Artist Gym is a creation and creativity workshop that allows participants to explore a theme through an artistic lens in a supportive environment. This workshop will be co-facilitated by graduate students Sarah Plotkin and Arlen Hancock, and undergraduate student Aurora Hannisian. It is co-sponsored by TEGA and Kidding Around.
For this Gym we’ll be exploring the theme of “Weight.” What weighs us down and how do those weights define us? When do we find empowerment and strength in the weight we feel? How can we break through what weighs us down to connect and grow with one another? In this workshop we’ll use theater, movement and writing exercises to explore these questions as a community.
Artist Gym is about bringing people together to create and generate work without the pressure to show a final product outside of the workshop. Facilitators will lead participants through a series of exercises that allow us to play, collaborate, and develop our skills as artists. Through this work we hope to ignite and enrich our creative practices as individuals and as a community!
