Cultivate creativity

Local artist Alena Hennessy (whose t-shirts and scarves appear in this week’s Xpress fashion spread) is hosting a four-week online workshop called Abundant Wild Life. It runs Monday, April 30 through Friday, May 25.

According to a Vimeo promo, it’s about creative exploration and “diving deep into all that is abundant.” Journaling, painting, collage and photography are part of Hennessy’s holistic, mind-body-spirit approach, which also includes working with flower essences, herbal teas, meditation and yoga.

The workshop was recently included in Daily Candy’s Weekend Guide, so spaces are going fast. Registration is open either until the class fills or until midnight tonight.

Registered participants receive a copy of Hennessy’s new book, Cultivating Your Creative Life, due out July 1 and currently available for pre-order.
