Online via Zoom


Make art and dance away your somber feelings! Join local artist Ola Aksan to create a drawing through dance and movement. In connection with her SPIT IT OUT gallery exhibition at the Harvard Ed Portal (through April 30), this online workshop motivates optimism and action to release the chaos and confusion of this past year. Participants of all physical abilities welcome. No previous experience or skill required.

How will we draw through movement? Using the supplies provided, Ola will guide you to:

  • Tape a large piece of drawing paper

  • Step/touch charcoal powder or washable paint (your choice!).

  • Dance on the paper. Your movements will mark your paper.

  • Share with the group (if you want)

Optional: experiment with music, setting, backdrop, lighting or outfits, if you wish.

Upon registration, the Ed Portal will mail you an art kit for the workshop and more details. No special space required. Any floor or wall area roughly 6' x 6' or more is suitable. Carpet is not recommended.

Please note: This program is designed for adults, but children are welcome in the company of their grown up.
