PROGRAM: Workshops with Culminating  Art Exhibition

“If you had a place of your own, what would it be?” 

A PLACE OF HER OWN (PLACE) is a 6-month healing and transformation
program that uses simple grounding meditations, group discussion  and
intuitive art-making modalities to access and utilize your creativity
in fresh, innovative ways.

Who is PLACE for? Open to women of all colors. Rooted in an Asian American
cultural perspective, PLACE focuses on those who seek connection with their
intuitive wisdom, strength, and joy. You are ready to express yourself through
art and storytelling.
No art experience necessary, only the willingness to participate in creative learning.

Dates: January – June 2020
Thursdays Jan-Apr, 6:00–9:30 pm plus some Sat and Sun for field trips
                                                               and art exhibition events.

Locations: Workshops:1890 Bryant Street Studios #302, San Francisco


Tuition: $2,000 to 3,500 , includes materials, instruction for 25 classes,  full participation in the exhibition and individual access to Cynthia outside of class. We hope that those of you who can afford more will support those who cannot.  This is intimate work and we keep our group small, 12 - 15 maximum, tuition plays a small part of the funding we need to produce this program. We rely heavily on grants, donations and volunteer hours to supplement the tuition. 
Very limited scholarships available, or if you can help pay for another's tuition contact Cynthia Tom for more information.
