As the days grow shorter and we hunker down for what looks to be a long, cold winter (metaphorically if not literally), we have some light and warmth for you here at Bloom: our Winter 2021 Offerings, led by yours truly! They are all designed to make this dark time a rich one for incubating new ideas and skills, so you can manifest rewarding projects and healthier ways of creating in the year to come.
Always wanted to try playwriting? Looking to brush up your skills? Sign up for Playing & Writing: The Fundamentals of Drama. Are you a performer hungry for new ways of performing in this strange new world? Self-Scripting for Social Distancing is a creative laboratory that will open up a world of possibilities beyond Zoom theatre. Need a supportive environment to develop your creative project? Bloom Studio gives you a (loose) structure and a strong community to help you play, explore, and manifest your vision. Want to connect with other artists while nurturing your own spirit? Creatives Anonymous is a group designed to support artists in the pandemic through community, self-care, and wellness practices.
All the classes & groups are virtual, so you can join them from anywhere you have an internet connection!
On a personal note, in November I left my job as a case manager to focus more fully on Bloom and creative work. This is a scary time for everyone and a weird time to be (more fully) launching a business. We deeply appreciate your love and support, whether from near or far. If Bloom's offerings align with what you need in your life right now, we would love to connect with you.
If money is a barrier,we have sliding scale, and payment plans are an option. Creatives Anonymous, is pay-as-led, with no minimum donation! I've developed the classes and the payment system to serve needs I see in our community, but I am always learning. Need something else to make a class accessible for you? Have an idea for a class you'd like to take? Looking for some other kind of support? Reach out to me directly and we'll see what we can work out— I'd love to chat!
If you aren't looking to sign up for classes yourself but you know someone who they might be, please pass the info along— personal recommendations go a long way! Or maybe you'd like to gift a class to a friend?
