Meet in the El Pomar Grand Atrium of the Hamilton Building, level 1. All experience levels welcome, bring your own supplies or use one of our notebooks. On Tuesday, April 28 we’ll take a look at Quiet Contemplation -Using the evocative photography of Barbara Bosworth as a jumping off point, we'll try several writing exercises that embrace the contemplative mode inspired by the natural world.
