A few weeks ago I received an email introducing new workshops that Laurie had created. I had a certificate for a free workshop that I won at the last Girls Night Out fundraising event that I had attended. When I read the title “Disappointment & Loss”, I knew there was a reason this email arrived. I called Laurie and last week I attended the workshop.
There were 10 of us participating. Some faces I knew from before and some I met that night. We started the workshop and began to express our disappointment and loss through the expression of abstract colors on canvas.
Laurie’s work is process oriented, but as I have mentioned before sometimes the work that is produced is very powerful.
There is so much that I love about this amazing work. It does not matter how many workshops I have taken, sometimes I think that I know what I will process on a particular night. Once you get into the process and Laurie’s methods for facilitating, I am always amazed at what emotions come out and can be expressed through color and movement… an of course paint… nice thick paint!
