Desert Sunrise Studio offers Zoom


Desert Sunrise Studio, 537 N. Alameda Blvd., has a virtual open studio via Zoom at 1 p.m. every Friday, and SoulCollage at 1 p.m. every other Wednesday until April 21.

In the open studio, “we start with a short check-in, then spend 45 minutes to an hour working individually on whatever each person wishes,” said studio owner and Las Cruces artist Jan Hampton. “We end with about 30 minutes of discussion and sharing of our creations. This sharing has been inspiring to many of us, expanding our repertoire of creative activities,” Hampton said. She said five-10 people from three time zones in the United States attend the meeting each week.

In SoulCollage, “we adapt to the attendees, sometimes beginning with questions from newcomers and answers from those with experience with the SoulCollage® process,” Hampton said. “The meeting is set up similarly to Zoom Open Studio with each participant working quietly on whatever part of the SoulCollage process he/she wishes during most of the hour-and-a-half session. This meeting also includes people living outside of Las Cruces.”

Hampton is a certified SoulCollage facilitator. Visit www.soulcollage.com for more information. SoulCollage is a copyrighted “expressive arts practice” for groups or individuals.
