We call Practice Space a research studio because we are always asking questions.  We ask them about our everyday work, and we ask them about specific topics that tie together our process across the shop, studio, and public programs.  

 

1. Methods / The work of living / workshops and public programs at practice space:

Taught by in-house staff, sometimes in collaboration with invited artists and educators, we create space for adults to share their stories and experiences in the context of learning, curiosity, and reflection.

  • Manifesto and Collage with Danielle + Alexandra
  • Listening is Emotional Labor with Diana
  • Practicing Color / Practicing Material with Nicole (workshops for both kids and adults)
  • Habit/Women in Clothes
  • Walking tours led by us and others
