Has this ever happened to you - too much art and nowhere to hang it? 
You struggle all day to find a place and it still sits in the corner.

Introducing pocket art!

Stick it anywhere. Fill in empty spaces. Cover holes in walls. Improve tired old artwork.  
AND the best thing - it’s not precious. In case of calamity, let it go, buy another,
after all I’m still alive.

Collect them all: the food series, the pet series, the old-timey photo series
(for anyone who needs a quick relative), and the science series."

Writing Towards Reflection

A Creative Exploration of McGovern Lake


As writers and artists, we all need to make time to recharge our creative energies. This fall, step away from your desk and practice fresh ways of looking, thinking, and recording landscapes both internal and external, and refill your creative well thought this immersive walking investigation of McGovern Lake in Houston’s Hermann Park. Although the lake may have artificial origins, it has been transformed by a wealth of evolving ecological forces: from Muscovy ducks to channel catfish to honeybees. In many ways, McGovern Lake embodies the interplay between nature and nurture—one of several themes we will explore over the course of the session, all of which are linked by an overarching focus on reflection. What does it mean to see oneself seeing, for instance? How can image shape understanding? We will explore these questions and more through a combination of independent and collective writing exercises.

Sharing your work is always optional. Facilitation will be in English, but you should feel free to write in any language.

REGISTRATION: $45
MAX. PARTICIPANTS: 12
