Description

The goal of my class is to help each artist get into that highly creative, relaxed yet aware, right brain hemisphere flow-zone where creating is joyful, powerful, intuitive, and calming. In order to do that, creating an intimate emotional and physical space is critical.

With a friendly core group we get to know each other’s styles, tendencies, struggles, and cheer each other on when we bypass a creative roadblock. The classes will be in my home, which converts into a studio space!

Each artist comes with different needs and visions. Some artists want to release negative or positive emotion. Some just want to have a more technical approach of observing how the body is formed. Others want to experiment with creating art with a specific message. Others want to try painting, drawing, or implementing color, etc. I advise each student on what materials to purchase if they choose to go down that path of alternate materials.

I want to be able to be a support to each person individually, understand each students’ personal reflections on what they were happy about during their class creations, and what their goals are for their subsequent class. One benefit of this method will be to give each artist the sense that their work is about “process” and not “product”, which is essential for healthy creativity.

Each class will have a specific focus and plan, though each individual will tailor it differently to their needs and goals. We will be focusing much more on getting into the zone with long poses.

There will be wine/tea and pretzels/fruit/snacks provided.

I am capping the number to 8 participants.

Each class will be $40, and go from 7:30-10:00 PM.

Most supplies will be covered, such as paper, charcoal, easels, and the model.
