an 8 week earthy art workshop series
outside in person in Brooklyn, NY
Practice seeing like an artist, create art + make art tools in the outdoors individually together. Mama Earth is an amazing artist! Let's learn from her.
Currently building a program called Practice that will encompass many of our offerings: art + journaling + yoga + story + nature + workshops + more. We'll explore how to appreciate life and death and just find moments of healing along the way.
Become a member of our Patreon page to get regular updates on our art making process, finished art. Plus questions to instigate deep thinking and suggestions for techniques such as journaling (drawing, writing, scribbling in your journal). We love our patrons!
Our online gallery openings open first to
Patreon patrons and then to the public, generally a week later. We have a gathering online opening, where you can peruse through the art via a link while asking questions or listening in to the conversation. Once the opening is over the link is available for perusing on your own time. Check out the link from our January 2021 opening. The 'i' (for information) has details like titles, pricing, sold, etc.) and is in the gallery for each image.

Find ways to integrate visuals into your work! Practice elements of communication + design, graphic recording and visual facilitation in this experiential training. Day 2 open to alumni.
Bring your questions. You call it a meeting, event, session, gathering - we call it a workshop. Our workshops and longer initiatives use a framework integrating your needs with graphic facilitation, visual thinking, making art, complexity science and/or experiential education. We'll design and facilitate the kind of engaging workshop experience your participants crave.
Engage and connect with your audience through illustration or use the process of illustration to find a new perspective in a challenge.
We'll catch the attention of your audience by highlighting the brilliance in your story for all to see and feel.
Facilitators, managers + group leaders will love our tools. First, story stones!
Do meetings differently. Do communication differently. Approach in a new way. Listen deeper and wider. Add drawings to your words. Make them matter.
I'm Amanda Lyons - artist, graphic facilitator, and experiential educator with a background in organization development working at the intersections of courage, creativity and productivity in traditional and non traditional work places. VISUALS for CHANGE was born in an intention to do small things differently and make big impacts - to draw while we communicate, to add movement to meetings, to create collaborations where teams further their mission, ultimately using art to create interactions that matter!
