Creativity Lab:

A Movement Improvisation

& Art-Making Workshop

for Adults

Co-Taught by Karen Bray and Cathie Brenner

At the New Art Center in Newton

61 Washington Park

Newtonville, Ma.


Wednesday Nights 6:30pm-9:30 pm 2009-continuing to the present

Hour One:

We move and improvise in this class to get creative juices flowing (no experience necessary). Artists work collectively based on semester theme. We make collaborative, often giant-sized, works of art. Our large, open, light studio space provides artists an opportunity to make art outside the box and to combine mediums.

Hour Two:

Students work individually on pieces incorporating 2D and 3D works of visual art. Movement, writing, sound and narrative are also utilized. Students generate new inspiration in their current medium and have the opportunity to try a variety of new genres.

Hour Three:

We share the movement and visual works of art we have made during hour two. Artists have an opportunity for supportive feedback.
