Indianapolis US

Have you ever walked up to a work of art and wondered, "What the heck is it?" or 'What am I supposed to think of it?" We all have encountered works of art that we find challenging, ugly or just downright hate on sight. Instead of feeling like you have lost a staring contest, you could be walking away with understanding and a new opinion about art. You just need a few tools that no one ever told you about. Until now! *Please bring a photo (printed or digital) of at least one work of art you think is ugly, dumb or otherwise objectionable, along with an open mind and willingness to reconsider your opinion.

Bring one of the following:
crystals / gemstones
handmade soap
locally-roasted coffee (regular or decaf)
something else you’d like to offer (email your teacher before class)
to volunteer for this class as a facilitator (email Trade School before class)

About the teacher, Despi Ross

Despi is a collision of old and new. She loves high-tech everything and cutting-edge science but also has a healthy respect for doing some things the old-fashioned way (like making biscuits from scratch, growing food organically and taking black & white photographs with actual film). She is also about passionate about buying, cooking, and eating local, sustainable food and loves art, action movies, beekeeping, toy collecting, music on vinyl and hunting for treasure in thrift stores.
