Create Connections

with Tara Hayden

Do you have a desire to connect to yourself more deeply? I do! I
have found a couple of very meaningful ways to do that, and one of
those is through art and creative experiences.

‘Create Connections!’ is a workshop about deepening connections
to yourself, and your creativity and we will explore this concept in
relationship with others who choose to join us in this exploration.


Like when we hold our own hand, or hold the hand of others,
connections are formed. We will examine and delve into what it
looks like to join letters and letter forms together to form
connections and ultimately, structures.

In this class we will use lines (think letters made up of lines) to
express ourselves, our thoughts, and our passions and eventually
create a structure to hold them. We will be using our own words,
the words of others and other forms of inspiration for this
expression. This workshop is designed for all levels and especially
those who are willing to enter this experience with some curiosity,
courage, compassion and playfulness!


At the beginning of the workshop, we will explore these concepts in black and white and
eventually play with adding colour elements to our inquiry.


I have been playing and exploring these concepts and ideas after being introduced to artist
Paul Klee and after taking an online workshop earlier in 2022 with Mike Gold. This workshop is
a result of these incredible artists inspiration!
