BELFAST — Maybe you've been procrastinating on your creative endeavors, or spinning your wheels, or feeling too much malaise to engage in your creative process. “Bravery and Aplomb” will be offered Saturday, Feb. 15, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., by the Unitarian Universalist Church of Belfast, on Miller Street.
The program is free and open to all, but registration is required. Linda Buckmaster will be the workshop leader.
What is the itch you have to scratch, the tickle that makes you restless, the call you can’t resist? This workshop will help you move toward bringing your vision to life, even if you don’t yet know what that vision is.
Whether you want to express your creativity in writing, visual art, performance, your work life, or around your home, the program will practice the art of being open to discovery and letting go of outcomes — the springboards of creativity. Participants will dip into imagery, rich idea generation, creativity prompts, and group brainstorming.
No experience in the arts is required.
“This is a place to be curious and non-judgmental as we work to jump in with bravery and aplomb,” said Buckmaster, in a news release. “We’ll all have ‘beginner’s mind.’”
Linda Buckmaster is a poet, essayist, fiction writer, and memoirist with more than 40 publications. She is a member of the UU Church of Belfast and has spent more than 20 years in her professional life helping people identify their goals and the steps to make them a reality.
Group size will be limited to 12.
