You know when you do something so often but you don’t identify yourself with it? It is almost under your radar? That’s how teaching is for me. I guide big groups of people on an almost weekly basis through many different topics–teaching kids to draw the figure, grown-ups to paint, vision boards, creativity, color theory, sewing, drawing, collage, and on and on. I wrote a book and made a DVD about creativity. But I haven’t really identified myself as a teacher. Rather, I view myself as a creativity enabler. But to my resumé of life, I think I can finally add one more word–teacher.
Hello, my Phoenix, Arizona friends!
I’m excited to invite you all to the first of a series of special workshops. In these workshops, I will be sharing many aspects of creativity and making–including painting, drawing, Indian wood block printing, dream-catcher creating and other magical experiences.
The first workshop is just two weeks from today. The Art of Finding–A PAINTING WORKSHOP will be on March 29th, 1-4 p.m. in the studio. (Space is limited.)
We don’t really make paintings…we find them. You’ll learn how to tune-in in this hands-on acrylic painting workshop. I will share some inspirational images and techniques with you to help you do that thing you have been wanting to do–to paint–to play–to make a mess–to explore–to find yourself. We will dig in, paint in layers, wash them off and paint some more. All you need is an open heart.
NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! Truly. You’ll start wherever you are. I will supply canvas and materials.
Register here and stay tuned for more…
Oh, dear friends!
I am tremendously excited to share with you a most special project in honor of His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s upcoming visit to Birmingham, Alabama in October. Actually, I am rather stunned that we got the green light from the Birmingham Mayor’s office on Monday…but we did. To be honest, this project is so much bigger than me that I have no idea what it actually even is and I am curious to see how it will unfold.
