23rd Annual Touch Drawing Gathering
The Gathering is the deepest experience I offer each year. It is oriented to people who feel inspired to bring the process into their own lives and share it with others in their unique ways. We have scheduled the next Gathering in 2021. None of us know what conditions will be like at that time. Whidbey Institute has covid-safe policies: only private rooms, number limits in indoor settings, safe food service. We will decide whether to go ahead with the 2021 Gathering in the first few months of 2021.It is not open for registration yet.
