artist's way: week 9

by gl. at 11:49 pm

we worked with clay tonight because though it finally stopped raining, it's still a little cold for the supernifty supersecret surprise.

it was a hard night. the participants are 2 months into the process now and many of them are stretching themselves very thin. it looks like i have several the overachievers this term, and they don't want to give up. i'm actually worried about one of them, who gets up at 3:45 a.m. to do morning pages and is having nerve issues. another participant bristled against the purposely ephemeral nature of this exercise, since we did no writing about and very little showing of the creations.

there were some bright spots: there was a fair amount of lightening while tossing clay into the air and outright giggling when passing around the pieces while blind and trying to figure out what they were. and after mentioning the possibility a few week ago, one of the participants really is quitting her job!
