All Levels | Trees are an iconic symbol of the Northwest; some varieties may live well into the thousand-year range, yet they are static beings, their point of view rooted to a particular location. What do they see over their long lifespans? This is a class about seeing, about noticing the resonances between ourselves and the world around us. We will do this by anchoring our attention on our arboreal neighbors. We will investigate ourselves through the trees in our lives, read widely and write poetry and creative nonfiction.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.
Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
