Personal Power Tools

Sorry, this class has been cancelled.

Date: October 14.

Sculptor Louise Nevelson said, “It’s a hell of a thing to be born, and if you’re born, you’re at least entitled to yourself.” What is personal power? When do you feel most powerful? Least powerful? What kind of power do men have? Women have? Who’s the most powerful person you know? What would you do if you had more power? How do the arts give us tools for expressing our power? In this workshop, we’ll discuss all these things and more—and we’ll visit the “Power Tools” exhibition to discover how it enlarges our vision of personal power. Finally, we’ll write a brief essay to capture these important ideas.
