Cor Art Classes

Workshops for the Human Spirit.

Classes begin September 30

This, our third pilot of an arts residency teaching program, we are offering as a response to the difficulty of the last few months. These classes offer a place to feel human in a surreal time. They are an opportunity to renew, refresh, to process the last few months, to feel some playfulness and freedom, and to learn skills helpful in these changing times.

Classes will take place online, or in some cases outdoors in small groups. Thanks to generous support from the Eichholz Foundation and Dana White, class fees are discounted for all, and scholarships are also available.

This program is set up with working adults in mind, especially in the service and helping professions. We’ve all been through the wringer. Long long hours of work or no hours at all. Uncertainties about safety. Uncertainties about our children. Uncertainties about the future. Come restore and process. Medical professionals, teachers, bus drivers, nonprofit employees, social workers, firefighters, daycare workers, baristas and restaurant servers, lawyers, cleaners, and others in other walks of life. These classes are really for all of us. We are all going through this.
