FREE TO ATTEND! 

This free workshop consists of participants practicing narrative and meaning making through the use of their own developed abstract language. Their abstract language would be derived from associations we have with our every day surroundings; whether it be through the use of color, shape, pattern, or texture. Each participant will come up with 5-10 images utilizing their acquired language. This activity is a practice in reading and interpreting an abstract environment.
