No-Stress Critique

Date: February 27th, 1:00pm
Location: Arts Etobicoke (4893A Dundas West)

There’s nothing more potentially helpful to artistic growth and development in any field than constructive criticism.  However, as many artists in the visual, literary, or performing arts know firsthand, criticism in the arts can be far from ideal and not always rational, fair or constructive.  The key lies in recognizing and being open to informative feedback, while at the same time recognizing and being resilient to that which is unfounded. Whether you are a visual artist, writer or performer, this one-of-a-kind workshop will provide you  with concrete and empowering strategies, insights and tips for how to evaluate your own work, how to get the most out of valid and constructive feedback and how to prevent problematic feedback from being taken to heart.  It’s a great opportunity to develop a key set of skills to have in your professional “tool box;” and, if you teach in the arts, it’s also a rare and terrific professional development opportunity!

Your Health in Your Hands: Managing Stress with Self-Shiatsu

We are all affected by stress. How we address it determines the impact it will have on our bodies and minds. In this workshop we will discuss the causes and the short-term / long-term effects of stress on your health. You will learn self-Shiatsu and other effective strategies for managing stress, allowing you to take control of your health and well being.  Shiatsu is a Japanese type of massage based on the application of pressure to specific points on the body. As the pressure is adjusted to suit the comfort and health needs of each client, shiatsu can be used on anyone, regardless of their condition. Shiatsu is used for stress relief, as preventive treatment and is used to effectively treat countless specific health conditions.
