Well-Being Closing Event and Acrylic Drip on Glass
October 15 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
We invite you to join us in person at Whole World Arts for an art viewing and art making session in celebration of Well-Being.
Participate in our free Acrylic Drip on Glass session. Taking time to reflect, reimagine and connect with art as the medium can help to clear our minds and reset our focus. Simple tasks of dripping, squiggling, smearing and squishing paint excite our senses, drawing attention away from worries and stresses of the day. Relax with us during this fun session and go home with colorful glassware. You will get to choose the glassware, ranging from a vase, wine glass, and more, set up your palette of colors and then smush it to create a personalized piece.
Suitable for all Humans creating as they are able.
This is a free event but please register HERE. The suggested donation is $10.
In the exhibition, we invited artists to explore well-being in a time of growing awareness around mental health, including emotional, psychological and social aspects. Our shifted context has led to the potential for a revision of well-being. This caused us to ask, “How have conventional concepts reflected this shift for your lived experience? Has this impacted ways you have been able to sustain yourself, your challenges and resilience?”
Recent social justice tides have brought sweeping momentum, action and calls to reimagine justice and movement building. Intersecting legacies of injustice and trauma can impact mental health and well-being. We wanted to know how artmaking reflects interdependence of communities and intersectional identities. We sought art that could envision new ways of being that are relational, fight stigma, dismantle ableism, and uphold disability justice.
