Middletown Art Center hosts May 30 art event

“Neurographica” by Antje Howard.

MIDDLETOWN, Calif. – The Middletown Art Center invites community members to participate in “Connecting Community in the Age of Social Distancing,” a meditative art inquiry with Antje Howard on Saturday, May 30, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. via Zoom.

The workshop will focus on reinvigorating our connection to one another and to different parts of ourselves, some of which have been quite dormant during the past two-plus months.

"Connect with Us! We will inquire into what we hold dear as individuals as community, and as people living in, and sharing this place – Lake County – here and now’” explained Howard, the event’s facilitator.

“We will explore how and where we can connect through creativity, what each of us need and wish for, what each of us have to offer and how we can participate in strengthening our community together,” Howard said. “The inquiry will be guided with the help of a simple intuitive drawing process using the Neurographica technique that can help us to see things from a new perspective. No prior art experience is required."

Participation is by donation of $1 to $25 to benefit the center.

Preregistration is required. Please sign up at and a Zoom link will be provided. Work trade options are also available, inquire at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

All you need is a piece of paper, thin and thick black markers or other pens, colored pencils, markers or pens, and a readiness to try something new.

The drawing process will take approximately 1.5 hours, with the final 30 minutes of the workshop reserved for an optional community connection activity.
