Nanci Hersh will be leading this art and conversation workshop on Saturday, April 15, 2023, 1-3 pm.
Nanci is a master teaching artist, and a trained facilitator with the Delaware Humanities in their Community Conversations program.
Participants will engage in group discussion around our watershed or pivotal moments in our lives, what we hold onto and what we leave behind. Our conversation will be the inspiration behind us creating hanging vessels or tear drops out of a variety of mixed media. These unique sculptures offer what author Gertrud Mueller Nelson calls “a sense of closure and containment,” recognizing our tears as “vessels into which to pour most profound feelings”.
The objective is to offer creative practice as a ritual and process to reconnect with our creativity, find joy, and facilitate deeper, sometimes difficult conversations for authentic connections and to see the beauty in our shared humanity.
This program has been made possible by Delaware Humanities, a state program of the National Endowment for the Humanities, and by the Chris White Community Development Corporation.
