MIDDLETOWN, Calif. – The Middletown Art Center invites community members to participate in “Navigating the Chaos,” this Saturday, Oct. 24, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on Zoom.

The workshop will be facilitated remotely on Zoom by Neurographica Specialist and artist Antje Howard.

The workshop will include a combined drawing and writing process, with time to share insights into drawings and writings.

Participants will use a combination of free-writing and simple drawing techniques to process and reframe their experiences of chaos and uncertainty into a more navigable form.

“Collectively, we are feeling confusion, grief and a range of other emotions. With the help of the creative process, we will bring them into a more navigable form,” explained Howard. “We will use the Neurographica Method, a drawing process that can help us to interact with our subconscious mind and see things from a new perspective. In addition, we will use writing to bring the new insights back and anchor them in our conscious awareness. No prior art experience is required, and all you need is a piece of paper, thin and thick black markers or pens and colored pencils, markers, or crayons."

Please register at www.middletownartcenter.org/classes. Participation is by donations of $5 to $25. A Zoom link will be provided following payment. No one turned away for lack of funds.

The MAC Gallery is open Friday to Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., or by appointment by phoning 707-809-8118. You can also visit the show virtually at www.middletownartcenter.org/current.
