Studio Stories, Illuminating Our Lives through Art, relates the deeply personal journeys of ordinary women who are drawn together by a common yearning to express themselves through art, but discover that the creative path also leads deep within – to hidden thoughts, buried memories, and dramatic life changes.
Alongside the women’s stories from the studio, author Lauren Rader offers her own gleanings from a lifetime of teaching and artistry. She shares her philosophy of creativity as birthright, and through poetic “river lessons” that precede each chapter, she takes the reader along on my daily walks by the Potomac, where nature offers artistic inspiration and lessons for life.
Part manifesto, part meditation, Studio Stories is most of all a celebration of the creative spirit in us all.
For this special event, Lauren will lead readers on a short creative exercise, then discuss her book.
This event is free and open to the public. There are three options to RSVP:
