Paint with Your Words: An Interactive Exhibit

Join YourWords STL for an interactive art exhibit in the Cortex, on Sunday, Dec. 16th from 3 PM to 5 PM. With guidance from teaching artist Aysia BerLynn, the young women of Marygrove Children’s Home have created paintings in response to mindfulness exercises, then used their artwork as prompts for creative writing. Participants will have the opportunity to view the paintings, read the accompanying poetry, and write responses to the artwork on display.

Attendees will also be able to enjoy appetizers, provided by Urban Chestnut Brewing Company, and refreshments, provided by Natural Tableware, and music.
