the work of living

Practice Space is a research studio developing new ways to cultivate practices for self care. We call it the work of living, and it is the essential foundation for caring for - and being in solidarity with - others. It requires a deep inner life, a strong connection to your body, feeling grounded in a place and supported by a community, and experiencing meaning: the sense that you are part of something greater than yourself. And all of these things take practice.

we believe in process and all the in-between, unglamorous tasks[1] that entails.

Practice Space’s classes are founded on progressive and experience-based pedagogies. Our goal is to guide you (or your child) in developing your individual practice of making and thinking as a means to better understand yourself and your surroundings.

Through classes at Practice Space, children gain tools for self-expression, looking at the world critically, and how they can have a role in making a difference in the world.  Children become empowered to think for themselves and question assumptions by working though creative problem solving and visual thinking. They develop useful non-verbal communication skills and methods of intuitive processing. With these tools, children become better aware of their environment and participating members of their community.
