In this intimate workshop, participants create their own “Cassa Di Vita” that artistically documents your life and  embodies both the personal and collective experience of being human.

Course Description:

Create your own “Cassa Di Vita” (Box of Life) with Colorado-based visual artist and professional photographer, Dona Laurita. Your personal “Cassa” is a one-of-a-kind ancestral piece holding and treasuring your individuality and depth using your personal story and ephemera. You will be photographing, writing, making, and sharing in a safe space where your vision and vulnerabilities have respect and place to be acknowledged and artistically presented. Dona’s Cassa Di Vita projects range from large estate commissions to small, altered books and boxes, tiny shrines to large rooms filled with story.
