"Developing the hypothesis that we are all artists with a deep love for nature"
Join International Touring Artist Shelley O'Brien for an interactive workshop that opens the senses to the Yukon's wondrous natural beauty. Channel your inner poet by capturing your favourite element of nature in a free-form haiku. With coaching on songwriting to guide you, evolve your ideas into a song, and record your work on a self-designed CD and CD case. A rewarding collaboration to further develop the hypothesis that we are all artists with a deep love of nature. All ages, and no experience necessary. If you play an instrument, be sure to bring it along!"
