"'Jam Session' Pastel Class"
October 23-25, 2017
 

Ever wonder why we "play" music but do art "work"? Come and practice improvising in this playful, interactive workshop. The ability to be spontaneous, receptive and in the moment is vital in our creative process. In this workshop you'll train your brain to readily engage the spontaneous mode, strengthening it to become an equal partner in your art making. Through an interaction of skills, knowledge and goals, and letting go and allowing the painting to paint itself. In this workshop, you'll focus on the process of painting as you move quickly through a series of evolving exercises very carefully constructed to allow you to set aside thinking and lose yourself in what you see developing on your paper.
