The Nose Knows | Olfaction As a Mode of Self-discovery

"The emotional and cognitive experiences that are triggered by our sense of smell are both immediate and complicated, tied in with memory and our bodies and our life struggles...

- The Storefront Institute

you'll be invited to explore odor and learn about the physiological effects of essential oils on the nervous system, memory, and mood.

Then drawing from your experience of the oils' impact on your body and mind you'll create a uniquely personalized cologne that you can then incorporate into your daily rhythms and habits.

In this way you will explore connections between smell and need, discernment and care.

The Nose Knows is a workshop designed to facilitate curiosity about your internal self-states. Those states of body and mind that fluctuate based on where you are, what you're doing, and who you are with. 

We will explore the value of somatic awareness and the utility of our sense of smell as a guidepost to understanding our needs, wants, and desires.

Using mindfulness prompts, group discussion, and writing exercises,

The Marker's Mark | Drawing for Self-Reflection

When we think of drawing, whether abstract, realistic, or surreal, we tend to think of it as a means of representing something. A thing in front of us. A vision or idea in our minds. But what if we flipped that artistic process on its head? What if we used drawing as a means of getting at a deeper understanding of ourselves? What can we learn about who we are, what's on our minds and in our hearts, by sketching?

Join me for an experimental life drawing workshop focused on the process of observing as opposed to the goal of representing something perfectly. Through experiential exercises and group discussion see what you can learn about yourself by what you put down to paper. Noticing how the nuances of our unique experiences define our material world just as much as what’s actually in front of us.

You'll leave this workshop with the new materials and exercises to make drawing an integral daily practice of observation and self awareness.

This workshop is brought to Case For Making by Storefront Institute. It is a part of their Practice Studio Series. Save your seat!
