5th Anniversary of Guided Meditation at the Grant Wood Studio: Art Becomes Us @ 5th Anniversary of Guided Meditation at the Grant Wood Studio: Art Becomes Us
Nov 14 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

We’ll conjure images and evoke emotions as we spirit ourselves, meditatively, to where some of our favorite works of art were created. As we immerse in those imagined moments of inception, let’s see what creative spark becomes ignited within us. With the Grant Wood Studio serving as our launch-pad…it’s sure to be an inspired ride! After meditation is finished, stick around and celebrate five years of dreams, reflections, and growth by turning them into artwork! Join us for open-ended art-making that’s fun & easy for anybody (even those of you who think you’re not an artist). There will be some party treats to munch on while you channel your creativity. Please register at least 24hrs prior to session. Contact Education Director Erin Thomas at ethomas@crma.org or 319.366.7503 ext. 203 to register. This program is for ages 13 and up. Fee: $10 payable to Noelle Holmes.
