A Women's Personal Enrichment Series Workshop
with local artist and creative coach Pam Murray, B.A., M.B.A.
Can you imagine your life without beauty in it?
Beauty plays a central role in our lives, yet is often taken for granted.
Beauty is powerful because it matters. What does beauty really mean? Participants will play and explore the eternal theme of beauty - both on the outside and from within.
On Tuesday, October 6, 2015, Pam Murray, B.A., M.B.A., local artist and creative coach, will facilitate the lunch break workshop entitled
“Why Beauty Matters . . .”
Start time is noon and the location is the Campus Center Building, Global Understanding Video Conference Room, room 233.
Through visual and written activities and expressions, Murray’s workshop will help you take a look at such questions as: What does beauty mean to me? How do I describe what it is? Where do I find it? What meaning does it bring to my life? What is its deep value…why does it matter? Join us for this workshop exploration to immerse yourself in the beauty of you and the beauty of your world.
Reservations are required . To reserve a space for Murray’s Women’s Personal Enrichment Lunch Break Seminars, contact the Women’s Resource Center at 423-439-5772.
