Thursday Family and Recreation Edition

"When we take a creative approach to self reflection and have an attitude of open inquiry as to what might give us that answer, we have a better chance at self-fufillment."

- Laine Nixon, Artist and Leader of Practically Dreaming Workshops and the Creative Habits Lab

[Creative Workshops]  New Workshops Realign Participants with their Goals and Values
Laura Paquette, laura.paquette@srqme.com

Creativity and structure appear to be polar opposites. Many people imagine that creative work gives them freedom, while structure boxes them in to inflexible routines. For artist Laine Nixon, creativity and structure go hand in hand, and when combined, can foster personal growth in every aspect of life for everyone, regardless of whether or not they are artists themselves.

This July, Nixon hopes to help Sarasotans kick start the accomplishment of their goals by offering two programs. The first, called the Practically Dreaming Workshop, is a four-part month-long workshop. This hands-on workshop focuses on helping participants define their goals and values while discovering how to work towards them. “We starts with exploration, creatively looking at our goals, dreams and anything we want to do with the rest of our lives,” says Nixon. “Then, we analyze a particular goal in different ways, exploring our fears about that goal, why we want to pursue it and catagorizing our goals to see if our life is balanced and whether we are working in the categories that we want to prioritize.” Participants gain new tools that help them examine their lives from an innovative perspective while making meaningful changes. One of Nixon’s favorite tools is creating a deck of vision cards, which tie together everything learned during the workshop and guide students toward their desired futures. While this workshop meets once a week, people searching for consistency on a day-to-day basis will enjoy the Creative Habits Lab.

Nixon runs the lab as a month-long session for one hour every weekday morning. The lab is a virtual accountability group, in which participants commit to showing up each day with the intention of setting aside time to work on a particular goal or habit. They set their intentions for the day, then go to work in one of four areas: visualization, meditation, journaling or another creative project. This structure allows the group to zero in on their goals while providing proven strategies for working towards them. “The labs are for anyone who wants to progress in those four areas but hasn’t made them a priority,” Nixon adds, “and I give them foundational tools to help build that structure.”

The desire to engage with the community and leave a positive impact inspired Nixon, who as an artist often works by herself, to start the programs. During the pandemic, she realigned her studio practice to be more in tune with her values and intentions. “Alignment is about finding purpose and success in my natural way of being, which is also my personal affirmation,” she says. “When we take a creative approach to self reflection and have an attitude of open inquiry as to what might give us that answer, we have a better chance at self-fufillment.”

Vision cards are one of the many tools participants gain from the workshops, and are instrumental in guiding them towards their objectives. Photo courtesy of Laine Nixon.

[Recognition]  UF/IFAS Extension Manatee County Master Gardener Project Earns International Recognition

 The UF/IFAS Extension Manatee County Master Gardener Volunteer program was recognized for excellence during the 2023 International Master Gardener Conference, hosted by the Kansas State University Extension Master Gardeners of Johnson County, held in Overland Park, Kansas, June 18 – 22,2023. The award was presented during the conference and was attended by 1,130 Extension Master Gardeners and Extension professionals from 44 states, Canada, and England. The David Gibby International Search for Excellence Awards, named in honor of the founder of the Extension Master Gardener program, recognize exemplary group projects that show significant learning by the Master Gardeners or the public. The award-winning projects showcase the efforts and talents of Master Gardener volunteers, often providing economic, environmental, educational, and health impacts. These innovative projects frequently serve as models, influencing the development of Extension Master Gardener-led programs worldwide. The awards are divided into seven categories: Community Service, Demonstration Gardens, Innovative Projects, Research (Applied Scientific Methodology), Special Needs Audiences (Senior, Disabled Audiences or Horticultural Therapy), Workshops or Presentations, and Youth Programs. UF/IFAS Extension Manatee County Master Gardeners placed second in the following category: Community Service for Plant-A-Pail Community Outreach Workshops™. Plant-A-Pail Community Outreach Workshop™ (PAP) targeted residents of Manatee County living in food desert communities where access to fresh, healthy vegetables is limited. Conceived and operated by Manatee County Master Gardener Volunteers (MGV’s) as a way to reach underserved members of the community, the purpose of PAP was to conduct a series of workshops to teach residents how to grow their own vegetables at home in containers. All materials were provided free of charge. 348 people have attended PAP workshops from August 2017 to December 2022. We have vastly increased the educational outreach into the underserved communities that comprise just under one-third of our county’s residents. The success rate of their vegetable gardens has been outstanding, with over 90% reporting yields of over 14 different crops for an estimated 200 lbs. of vegetables. Extension offices of four other land-grant universities have adopted PAP in one or more counties at University of Arizona, University of Minnesota, University of North Carolina, and Cornell. Currently, there are 133 Master Gardener volunteers in Manatee County who support UF/IFAS Extension's educational programs in consumer horticulture. They help Extension better serve the home-gardening public by answering questions, speaking to groups, gardening in demonstration gardens, and participating in many other projects.

Pearls memory is a treasure-trove of unrecorded slave era music, but can she hand over her ancestors’ songs without giving up something of herself? Black Pearl Sings tells the evocative story of an unlikely bond, preservation of musical heritage, and the human need for hope and healing.

Her artistic practice is grounded in appropriating, recycling, and manipulating imagery. The work reminds us of the image world that inundates our daily existence.

Yet, Bieber is less interested in a critique of this condition than she is in offering her work as an antidote, a way to inspire viewers and reconnect with our shared sense of wonder.
