April Meeting and Program – Wabi-Sabi with Lisa Cuchara

Wednesday, April 20, 2022
Wabi-Sabi with Lisa Cuchara
“Wabi means a beauty of elegant imperfection. Sabi means aloneness. Together, they suggest the beauty of the withered, weathered, tarnished, scarred, intimate, course, earthy,
evanescent, tentative ephemeral” ~Crispin Sartwell, Six Names of Beauty.

This program teaches you to:
• Explore the beauty of imperfect and/or unconventional objects
• Appreciate the beauty of everyday life Instead of searching for subjects that are perfect, highlight subjects that have character such as decaying fallen leaves, a deformed coneflower, rust as it creates abstract patterns amidst the decay, etc.
