We’re excited to announce our first on-campus art exhibit! On Saturday March 17, we’re having a reception and book signing to celebrate Shadra Strickland’s original art from A Child’s Blessings and Prayers: From Faiths and Cultures Around the World, written by Deloris Jordan (Simon & Schuster/Paula Wiseman Books, October 2017.) We’ll have Shadra’s art on display throughout our 2018 workshop season.
In conjunction with the reception, we’ve invited Shadra to do an Unworkshop with us March 15-18. She’ll be working on her latest projects, and will share meals and conversation with other Unworkshoppers. You can join us for as many days as you like. There’s no set schedule. We’ll provide you with comfortable lodging and three great meals a day. From the moment you arrive, you’ll feel right at home and fussed over. We’ll furnish a peaceful setting that lets you focus solely on your work. Choose your Unworkshop dates.
Here’s a look at some of Shadra’s wonderful artwork–click on an image for a larger view.
About the book:
From cultures and countries near and far, this collection of more than twenty poems and prayers selected especially to share with children affirms the wonder and beauty of all things great and small in our world. Whether it be the flowers in spring, the wind and the rain, the wide sunset sky or friends and family who we hold dear, there are many reasons to give thanks for the world we live in.
