Caring for Our Teaching Artists

RISCA hosted its first Self-Care Day for Teaching Artists on Sunday, Nov. 19. Fifteen teaching artists working in community education and health settings gathered at SHRI Studio. This day designed to provide space to rest, reset, and recharge included three artist facilitated sessions as well as unstructured time to be alone or connect with each other. Artists had an opportunity to write a community poem on What Self Care means to them and create a wall of art using tape.

For her weavings, she uses locally sourced materials such as Navajo churro wool, llama, and wood. The exhibit closes on Feb. 7.
