I had the opportunity to attend IlaSahai Prouty's Art of Experience: Facilitating Community-Based Art at Penland during a two-week summer workshop. I became closer to the people there in two weeks than some of the relationships I held back home. We held a picnic during the second week, a communal activity with each person sharing a gift with everyone in our group. I created little prints/napkins on Rives BFK with everyone's faces as a memento of our time together—lovely companions and all the feels.
