  • Audrey Wollen is a feminist theorist and visual artist based in Los Angeles. Wollen uses social media, such as Twitter and Instagram, as platforms for her work on Sad Girl Theory, a theory which posits that internalized female sadness can be used as a radical and political action, separate from masculinized forms of protests such as anger and violence. She introduces this form of protest as an alternative to masculinized anger and violence.

Continuing Education Course



Tapping the Third Realm with Ruth Ann Anderson


Join Ruth Ann Anderson for a workshop focused on accessing your spiritual self through the creation of a handmade artist book. This one-day workshop explores a spiritual approach to art-making including use of self-reflection, transformation, and the cyclical nature of the full moon. Emphasis is on connecting the spirit and the self, artistic creation and the journal -- to access and understand a deeper level of the soul. The program begins with a group circle to welcome the four elements (air, fire, water, earth) and moon goddess to guide our intentions and witness our work. As the day progresses, participants are lead through guided meditations, meditative writing exercises, and decorating an eight-fold book. Also explores how to make more elaborate works using a box and translucent envelopes. Materials include colored pencils, rubber stamps, ephemera, and collage. Workshop concludes with a closing circle, including sharing bread and dismissing the elements and the Moon Goddess. Limited meditation supplies are available for use including Runes, the Mother Peace Tarot deck, Goddess cards, and the Druid Animal Oracle.
