“Our motto at the Center is ‘Life is an Art', as I was invited to create the Center following the presentation of Beatrice Wood: The Art of a Life at the Craft & Folk Art Museum, Los Angeles,” says Wallace. “Beatrice Wood truly lived a life in which the arts and the everyday were seamlessly intertwined."

In this workshop, participants will explore Beatrice Wood’s passions – art books, philosophy, drawing, working in clay, preparing food, and conversation – all with a sense of how the most mundane aspects of life can be imbued with creativity. They will work with clay in her studio, utilize her colored pencils to create drawings, and prepare lunch in her kitchen.
