Voices of Wisdom, FREE Workshop presented by Conrad Levasseur

Ironstone's own Conrad Levasseur will be the guest presenter at a free workshop in Creative Journaling. We are very proud of Conrad and hope you can join him!

VOICES OF WISDOM – GUEST PRESENTER CONRAD LEVASSEUR - Tuesday March 5, from 1-3 PM at Manzanita!

Conrad Levasseur, poet and writer, as well as Director of Community Relations and Development at Ironstone Vineyards, will be presenting a free workshop in Creative Journaling at the Tuesday, March 5, at the Voices of Wisdom free writing classes for seniors session from 1-3 pm. 

Location: Manzanita Arts Emporium in Angels Camp. The two-hour session will focus on opening channels of creativity, using art and the written word to stimulate personal ways to express artistic desire. Keeping a multimedia journal can be used to record emotions, memories, creative ideas—as well as trigger hidden images and language repressed by our busy lifestyle and workaday world. Conrad Levasseur has developed a method that will pique interest in one’s own artistic talents and may assist the writer, artist, or anyone interested in expanding their artistic desires, to experiment with images and language.

Journal writing, poetry and art have been important mediums for Conrad in helping to balance his outer explorations with his more inner ones. He has taught workshops in multi-dimensional journal writing, using these elements and others as a therapeutic way to put one’s business, or academic life, into a greater creative perspective. He has published seven books of poetry, and is currently working on several manuscripts and a complete collection of his poetry. He and his wife, Margaret, moved with their three children from San Francisco to Calaveras County in 1981. 

Conrad Levasseur has conducted groups through over a hundred and twenty countries in Africa, asia, Central and South America, the South Pacific, Indian Ocean and Europe. For sixteen years, he was West Coast Regional Sales Manager for Travcoa (Travel Corporation of America), designing and implementing global travel presentations around the United States. He directed Lodestar International Student Center’s summer program in Calaveras County for UC Berkeley’s International House. In the 1970s, Conrad was a wild River Rafting and Wilderness Guide for ARTA (American River touring Association) in California, Oregon, Idaho, and Utah. He directed an environmental Speakers Program for the San Francisco Ecology Center and conducted walking tours of the city. His work at Ironstone Vineyards as Director of Community Relations & Development for over 16 years continues his interest in sharing information about our community to visitors from all over the country and world.
