Social Isolation Self-Care: A Community Gathering, hosted by Nicoletta de la Brown
Friday afternoons beginning April 17th through May 8th, 2:00-3:00 p.m.
This gathering is workshop style. The community is invited to discover new strategies for self-care during social isolation. As a group we will discuss, brainstorm, and develop modes for self-compassion and personal wellbeing. This gathering will allow us to feel connected with others during this time when we are all experiencing so much alone. We look forward to connecting with all of you, sharing new self-care rituals, and supporting you as you build your own personal self-care toolkit.
Our collaborators are also offering Professional Development!
The Maryland State Department of Education Fine Arts Office is offering EMBRACE, a FREE professional development series for Maryland’s creative education force: Arts Educators, Arts Integration Teachers, and Teaching Artists. Expert facilitators will examine the intersections of art and wellness by exploring creative practices to keep us open, curious and reflective during COVID-19.
