Make Kwento with Nica
Make Kwento is an 8-week journey for busy people with no time. You will discover your own artistry and be surprised by what you'll find ;)
A peek at the journey:
Week 1: Getting Started
If you're reading this, it's because you want to know more about Make Kwento. Every week has a theme and Week 1's theme is "Getting Started."
Make Kwento is for anyone who:
- wants to revisit, start, or complete a creative project.
- has no time for creativity OR themselves.
- wants to have fun, be inspired, and make new friends.
Each artist will have their own project to complete for 8-weeks. The project can be: returning to drawing, practice painting, learning a new craft or instrument, or completing an essay. It can be anything you want! If you don't have a project in mind, don't worry, Nica will guide you to find yours.
Week 2: Tree Viewing
This activity is a secret and only Make Kwento artists will experience it. Hint: It's everyone's favorite activity.
Week 3: Future Building
We will learn a creative tool on how to dampen our fears and anxiety :)
Week 4: Make Inspiration
Instead of "finding inspiration," Make Kwento artists will make it... together.
Week 5: Aboutness
For the first time, artists will see each other's projects. Another favorite activity!
Week 6: Aboutness Pt. 2
Continuation of Week 5's workshop.
Week 7: Window Framing
Artists will build windows and tell stories.... how? It's a surprise.
Week 8: The Last Surprise
One thing is certain: Make Kwento is full of surprises. Nica doesn't want to spoil the ending.
What past Make Kwento artists have said:
"I'm so glad to have joined this workshop that was more focused on the people than the technical process of making art. I met so many new and fun friends."
"Nica, I can’t thank you enough for hosting the past 8 weeks. Thank you for believing in me and pushing me to accept myself always! This experience is something I will never forget."
