Everyone is an Artist
Cindy Williams

This workshop is designed for those that believe they are artistic and those that believe they aren't. Enjoy learning mixed media techniques and create a wall hanging, altered playing cards or whatever you want to make. I truly believe that everyone is an artist and all we need are fun supplies and a little instruction.


You will learn to use:

We will touch on proper technique, listening skills, and ensemble playing. A djembe or dunun drum is required for this workshop. If you do not have one and want to take this workshop, please try to borrow one, or contact Sharon so she can bring an extra.

Play as a Spiritual Discipline
Ken Shilling

As children, we play to be something we do not yet understand. Play enables us to express ourselves freely without concern for mistakes. Play unleashes a creative drive to heal and be whole. We will create play-space together. We will reflect on our play and share our experiences to enhance our play with each other. We will love, know, and grow in play together. We will play in the sacred silliness in which you find yourself. We will explore a variety of styles of UUMAC play. Bring a crazy hat, some silly outfit, puns. Come to play. Each day will have a different theme. Childhood games, words at play, mad-cap merriment, carnival, and “the whole world is a stage”.
