I met Crista Cloutier in 2000 when the Hispanic Research Center of ASU commissioned me to create a lithograph. At the time, Crista was the director of Segura Publishing where I showed up everyday for one very productive and exciting week plus, to work with their crew and with master printer Joe Segura. She also directed their gallery. I admired her ease and professionalism.
Crista, actively involved in the contemporary art world throughout her career, is also internationally recognized as a writer, curator, and artist. She’s collaborated in the creation of artwork with some of the most significant artists working today. Much of the work exists in major collections throughout the US.
In the last few years I’ve connected with Crista via Facebook because today she moves between England, France, and the U.S and contributes to publications such as Huffington Post, The Guardian UK, and You Magazine.
…and guess what…Crista will be at Modified Arts, just after the new year. She’ll be teaching The Writer’s Life Workshop.
The Writer’s Life is a two-day workshop for both established and aspiring writers. This unique class will help participants find their voice, hone their craft, and create meaning in their life and work. Students will learn how to connect to their imagination as well as identify personal vision and attain their professional writing goals.
If you like to write, and you’ve been looking to:
- Identify your purpose and motives as a writer
- Create professional goals and find the steps necessary to achieve them
- Commit yourself to writing as an artistic practice
- Understand the remarkable power of your muse and engage more deeply with your imagination
- Learn to melt creative blocks
…then the workshop is for you!
