Playing on the Edge

A Monthly Introspective Art Group (Sacramento)

During the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person sessions have been cancelled. Instead, we are offering weekly on-line sessions via Zoom. Each Tuesday you will receive an emailed prompt and suggestion for art. You create on your own time, using materials easily available to you. On the following Sunday, we will meet from 3:00 – 5:00 pm via Zoom to share our art. Please register to participate. 

First Sunday of the month


Give yourself the gift of time away from life’s pressures by joining a supportive community of explorers in the Sacramento area who value artistic adventure and compassionate sharing. Playing on the edge means following one’s curiosity and imagination with an open heart and playful attitude, no matter where it leads, trusting that the process will be one of discovery and simple appreciation. No art experience is needed. This workshop is open to men and women.

Delve into a different art medium each month, focusing on your intuitive creativity. An evocative poem will prompt your ideas, then you will create in a quiet atmosphere, and finish with the opportunity to share your art and experience with others.

Because of the popularity of this monthly group, you MUST register before attending. If the group is full for the session you wish to attend, you will be put on a waiting list. To register, contact the facilitator, Carol Mathew-Rogers, to see if there is space.

A “Playing On The Edge” Testimonial:

“Thank you so much for the wonderful Saturday in your home. It was so peaceful and
fun and meaningful and memorable. I’m still soaking it in. I really love how your “invitations” prompted ideas and expression… each one of us having a unique and personal experience.
It’s much more than an art class! Your guidance set the tone, and I’m so grateful for the way you held space for us all.”
