Saturday, August 18th – “The Habit of Art”
Time: 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Registration: $60
Location: Directions sent to registrants.
The phrase ‘the habit of art’ was coined by Jacques Maritain, an early twentieth century French philosopher and later borrowed by the American writer Flannery O’Connor. It is a way of heightening experience as artists, poets or painters, writers or mosaisists, opening ourselves to what’s there. It is a point of view, a way of inclining our minds, a stillness. Just saying “the habit of art” can shift the view.”
In this workshop we will employ “the habit of art” to expand our practice as writers, as artists, and as individuals interested in the world.
