Art After Dark: "Sticks and Stones: A Colorful Conversation with Nature"

Wednesday, April 22, 2015 - 5:30pm to 7:30pm

On Wednesday, April 22, the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts will present the third installment of Art After Dark Creative Gatherings. Art therapist Todd Stonnell, MA will lead an interactive workshop on how art and creativity promote self-expression and can even relieve stress. Using artists such as Andy Goldsworthy as inspiration, all participants will have a chance to create their own unique and self-reflective work of art informed by nature. Doors open at 5:30 for refreshments and the program will begin at 6:00. All supplies and materials will be provided.

Art After Dark replaces the formal “lecture” format normally associated with museums with interdisciplinary activities such as this art workshop. The evening gatherings have a relaxed atmosphere that encourages engaging conversation. All activities are completely free of charge, and are made possible in part through the very generous support of the Longwood Parent’s Council.

Todd Stonnell holds a MA in Art Therapy from George Washington University and a BS in Psychology from Longwood University. Throughout his career, Todd has worked with a range of clients from adolescents to adults and is currently practicing at Williamsville Wellness Center in Hanover, VA.
