Re-energize Your Creative Journey

Education // Re-energize Your Creative Journey

Jun 8 - Jun 10

Overview // The objective of this workshop is to provide intermediate and advanced artists with the opportunity to reenergize your creativity and kick start your art making. The focus will be on helping artists hone in on your style, find your unique personal artistic style and give voice to your creative spirit.

With the guidance of an experienced and professional artist, teacher, coach, and mentor, this workshop will explore creativity and art making as an expressive activity, which will result in an exciting and enriching experience for each participating artist.

This workshop promises to nurture the joy of personal expression and the excitement of learning, while maintaining an atmosphere of creative freedom.

If you are looking for a fresh perspective for your creativity, an energy boost for your art making, or if you are looking for a different kind of workshop experience, then this is for you.

There will be plenty of art making time, demonstrations, discussions, critiques, and both group and individual instruction.

Artists will work with their own ideas, interests and subject matter, as well as with their preferred medium. It is suggested that each participating artist work with a medium that they are experienced and comfortable with. This workshop is open to artists who work with all manner of subject matter (figure, portrait, animals, landscape, still life or abstract). There will be no live models for this workshop, so figurative artists are encouraged to bring sketches, photos or previous paintings to work from. All artists, no matter what subjects they work with, should bring sketches, studies, photos or inspiration pieces to work from.

We will all come together as a group for discussions each day, as well as participate in a motivating and inspirational critique at the end of each workday.

Note to oil painters: please bring only odorless turpenoids.
