A few weeks ago the band Coyote Grace was in town!  They played at UWM and did a workshop the day after through the LGBT resource center (my favorite campus hang!).  They came to Carleton every year that I was there, and each time they did some really interesting workshops (Trans 101, Back Door Basics — cool stuff like that).  This workshop was about womanhood and definitely reminded me of this post at Nourishing the Soul.  We basically made collages about ourselves as women using magazines, glitter, feathers, buttons, and anything else we could find.  The workshop was held at the Studio Arts and Crafts Center (my other favorite spot!), and I was just intending to stop by on my way to class when I saw some friends making their collages!  I asked Ingrid (the singer + double-bassist) what her favorite workshop is and she said this one.  They spend so much time touring that it was nice to relax and make some art.  I totally agree.  Making time for art is crucial to my sanity.  I arrived to the workshop late, but I caught up in no time.  I think my collage (below) accurately represents me/how I’m feeling/things I like.  Things of note: pink microscope, leopard print coat, buttons, antlers, the Mutter Museum/conjoined twin skeleton, a bird made of chocolate cookies, a cat, and someone freaking out.
