Erasure Workshop with Zachary Schomburg

This 3 hour session will introduce you to the poetic form of Erasure, which is the practice of erasing words from an existing text to generate new poetry / visual art.

I'll also provide materials for erasure, including books, random prose texts, white-out, scissors, glue, markers, etc. If you already have a text you'd like to erase, please feel free to bring it along. At the end of the session, we will all be invited to share our new erasure work with the group. All are welcome. No poetry or erasure experience is necessary. 

Workshop fee is $25 Register HERE! Or email me to arrange a direct payment.

Forever a Rough Draft

Forever a Rough Draft

Our workshop is for anyone who wants to deepen their connection to themselves, their body, and creative process through guided meditation, somatic writing, and blind contour self portraiture. Your body is a soft machine, collection 37.2 trillion cells, a wild, sacred, living creature, and the universe performing itself—but what does that mean to you? Together we will explore what it means to have a body by unpacking what limits us through collective breathing and holding space for radical tenderness. We will spend the duration of the workshop alternating between gentle body scans, blind contour self portraiture, writing a personal manifesto, and voluntary discussion. The outcome of the workshop is to provide anyone the tremendously useful therapeutic tools of somatic writing, breathwork, and self portraiture to further their personal and creative growth. No experience is needed, just the desire to show up for yourself and connect both personally and collectively.

REGISTER HERE!

Attendees will receive a workbook, letterpress print, and a coupon code for the OBIYB shop/online courses.

Lead by Caitlin Metz and Victoria Emanuela of On Being in Your Body

Presenting work with Confidence with Mike Monterio

Presenting work with Confidence with Mike Monterio

Creating a compelling story from a list of recommendations is an often overlooked design skill.The myth that good design sells itself is just that — a myth. Good solutions aren’t always obvious at first glance. Good ideas, even the best ideas, need to be sold. A designer who can do pretty good work and persuade the client it’s right, is worth more than a designer who does amazing work, but can’t sell it to a client.

Making your case makes it more likely your work will launch on time (or at all) and that it represents your true intentions. It’s smart business. 
During this workshop, workshop instructor Mike Monteiro will cover effective presentation techniques including: how to take charge of a room, how to turn your research and data into a good story, how to map your work to the objectives of your business or client, how to ask for the right kind of feedback, and more importantly, how to avoid getting feedback you don’t really need! REGISTER HERE

Mike Monteiro is the co-founder and design director of Mule Design. He prefers that designers have strong spines. Mike writes and speaks frequently about the craft, ethics, and business of design. 

He loves design so much he wrote two books on the topic, Design is a Job and You’re My Favorite Client, both from A Book Apart. Mike received the 2014 Net award for Conference Talk of the Year for his inspirational polemic on responsibility, “How Designers Destroyed the World.”
