This four-week series combines creative expression and outdoor exploration. Join us for four sacred outings at sunset in nearby natural areas. We’ll explore the river (Goose Island), forest (Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe), marsh (Trempealeau National Wildlife Refuge) and bluffs (La Crosse Blufflands-Mathy Property). Some of the ideas we’ll explore during these outings are inspired by The Poetics of Space by Gaston Bachelard, available for purchase at the FSC bookstore but not required. Participants will be able to try a variety of art mediums at each space, including watercolors, oil pastels, charcoal and acrylic, and will have the option of staying after the workshop to meet for a social hour at a nearby restaurant.
