My workshops are designed to help you find your grandest version of your perfect self. Trial and error are not only allowed but encouraged. It is only through trying new ideas and by following the sage advice of Wolf Kahn who told his students to use the, “I don’t give and damn” approach when making art. No one ever learned anything doing what they already knew. Art is certainly more creative than imitative. So, join me, leave your inhibitions, fears, and egos behind, bring an open mind, plenty of paints, and let us do this thing.
Demonstrations and lectures are given each morning. For the first few days, there will be private consultations designed to help each student set a course of action. There will be two group critiques, one Wednesday morning and another Friday afternoon. This is where we share our awareness, victories, and desires. I will do a one-hour demonstration that is offered, not as a “how-to”, but rather to share my thoughts while finding my way through the creative process. Everyone’s creative process is different and hopefully, my approach will be encouraging and helpful to your process.
To achieve this goal the class will take a mentoring approach with most time giving to one-on-one conversations about how to help you define and present your work.
