Class Description: We will start with an art exercise, prompted by the question, “What does your ideal world look like?” Participants will be prompted to draw or paint whatever this means to them using available art supplies. From here, we will discuss the qualities that participants believe make the world a good place. Continuing to draw, and add to our visual representations of utopia, participants will begin to create a character to live in this world, whether they are average, everyday members of this society, or participate in a grander sense.
