Course Description:

As with plein air painting, the practice of writing outdoors allows us to create a connection with the natural landscape and weave setting and senses into our work. Join us each month as we explore the wonders of the Monterey Peninsula and use timed writings to coax spontaneous thoughts onto paper. During each session, we walk in silence, write, then read aloud to each other without comment. Our writing process often takes us to an intersection of spontaneity and authenticity, where the personal and universal sit side by side.



Tuition: $45.00
