Join us as we jump into a dynamic "playground of innovation" full of inspiring demonstrations, lectures, encouragement and practice. You'll learn how to coax an image out of an abstract background, how to paint abstractly from a reference and how to paint non-objectively utilizing only the power and intricacies of shape, color and line. You'll explore them all by working intuitively and embrace and respond to what shows up. Working in a series will help reinforce the concept.
We'll touch on notions of confidence, procrastination, vulnerability, curiosity, courage, talent, play, inspiration, intuition, your mean critic, metaphor, symbolic elements, competition, marketing, your belief systems, finding balance and more! There'll be plenty of time for "playing" and creating along with individual attention and guidance.
Joan is especially gifted in helping students gain more freedom in the creative process and discover their own unique artistic voice. She believes that people are more open to learning and inspiration when they are having fun, so her workshops are filled with laughter and lightness. A multitude of approaches and techniques will give beginners encouragement and confidence, while more advanced students will benefit from Joan's insightful solutions to their artistic challenges.
