Corita 101: Learning by Heart (At Home)
We've launched a new video series inspired by Corita and Jan Steward's seminal text "Learning by Heart: Teachings to Free the Creative Spirit". This first video introduces the main concepts from the book - looking, sources, structure, connect + create, work + play, and celebration. Over the next few months, we'll be sharing videos by artists around the world responding to these ideas in their own creative practice.
