Art Time Out is a series of workshops presented by Deborah Aschheim for WeRise.
Workshop participants color and creatively complete line drawings designed for them by Los Angeles County artists whose work deals with healing, nature, social justice, civic engagement and voting. Participants are invited to lend their voices and vision to the drawing in a collaboration with the artists.
Each participant receives a kit of designs, art markers and voter information. Art Time Out kits help facilitate drawing and coloring as a centering and calming practice to release stress after a challenging day and as a fun creative activity.
The workshops are also an opportunity to educate participants about voting and let them know how and where to vote in upcoming primary and November elections, because participating in voting is an essential element of a health society. Art Time Out teams can help register eligible voters and show them how to check their registration status.
