The Art of Letting Go – A Therapeutic Chalk Workshop

with Kara Hoblin

Thursdays, October 18, November 15 & December 20 | 6-8 PM | $10 ($7 for Friends of SAC)

Join North Fork chalk artist Kara Hoblin for the second session of making your own chalk creation inspired by something you would like to let go of. Students will work off their own small chalkboards that will be erased at the end of each session, and will add to a communal chalk drawing that will be ceremoniously wiped clean at “The Big Erase”, which will take place at the end of the Thursday, December 20th session with music and refreshments.

Kara finds inspiration in the emotional intricacies of the human psyche. She created “The Art of Letting Go,” an interactive chalkboard based art show that encouraged all the participants and viewers to erase her work alongside her. “Chalk came into my life when I needed to learn a very important life lesson, how to let go. It’s always astonishing and amazing to me that if you allow yourself to be open to change… when one door closes another opens. Letting go as cliche as it sounds is one of the most important lessons we can learn. Chalk provided me with that outlet, as an artist to let go of my work, as a lover to let go of heartache, as a human to let go of insecurity, loss, hate, pain, etc. And that doesn’t mean throwing them away or discarding those emotions, it simply means letting life BE. Taking all of those emotions and instances, growing from them moving forward into the light and out of the shadows.”
