This is a past event. Participants repeatedly used the words inspired, inspiring and inspirational. They loved having a "bite-sized" visual art project at the end. The only thing they wanted more of was more time!

Give the gift of wisdom this year! I am pleased to host the encouraging & inspiring Ann Rogers-Williams and her workshop "If Not Now, When? Beginning your memoir today". 'Tis the season to share stories with friends and loved ones, and if you've been struggling with how to write YOUR story, this is the workshop for you!

Let Ann help you find the right focus and format for your personal history. Discover your unique wisdom through simple memoir and brainstorming exercises designed to help you uncover inspiration & lasting value within your stories. Be prepared for a creative experience that will engage your literary AND visual talent!

Of course, memoirs won't write themselves in a single day, but this workshop has a special twist: a free followup session in January to keep you motivated and unafraid. Don't wait: "If Not Now, When?" is a remarkably affordable and intimate opportunity to reflect on your life as the year comes to an end.

She is a member of the Association of Personal Historians and her most recent life history story was published last winter in an anthology of stories from 26 Portland writers. Through creative writing, story telling and visual arts techniques she has helped adults from diverse backgrounds find hidden wells of creative energy within their own personal history and traditions.

About the studio: Scarlet Star Studios offers a wide variety of opportunities for art exploration, with instructors who will encourage you to create fearlessly & truthfully in a familiar, safe and inspiring studio environment.
