Please join us to celebrate the work of author, artist, and founder of The Painting School, Sara Woster. You won't want to miss it!

Sara Woster will be reading from her recent book, Painting Can Save Your Life: How We Paint and Why, followed by a Q&A and book signing on March 30 at 7:00 PM in TCC's 1867 Room. Sara's book invites readers into the vibrant world of painting as a creative practice powerful enough to transform our lives.

In addition, on March 31, Sara Woster will lead painting and writing workshops inspired by her book, her unique perspective as a teacher, and her creative process as both a visual artist and writer. Let's pick up a brush and a pen to discover the transformative powers of painting together.

And be sure to mark your calendars for the final event, an artist reception on March 31 at 5:30 PM in Harmon Hall of Peace. Sara's work will be on display at the Center for Visual Research. We hope you stop by!

Sara Woster founded The Painting School in an effort to share her passion for painting with her community. Her animations, multimedia, and collaborative performances have been shown at numerous art venues including the Hammer Museum, UCLA, and Franklin Art Works in Minneapolis. She has been granted a Jerome Foundation Emerging Artist Fellowship, a Franconia Sculpture Park residency, and a Brooklyn Arts Council SU-CASA residency.
