Painting & Drawing: Transforming the Ordinary

With Lori Goldberg

September 25 – 29, 2019

“If you create from the heart, nearly everything works, if from the head, almost nothing.”
– Marc Chagall

Set free your inner creativity and explore extraordinary methods of drawing and painting. Develop a better understanding of self-expression and the creative process as you joyfully rediscover your innate sense of play.

This popular and insightful hands-on workshop is for anyone wishing to explore drawing and painting beyond the ordinary methods. The environment, each other, and, most importantly, your authentic self guide you on this dynamic inner and outer journey.

This is an opportunity to connect to your own visual intelligence and to express from a deeply intuitive place. Learn new skills and approaches in the mechanics of drawing and painting and record your observations of the everyday world with a new awareness. Inspiration will come from direct observation, guided exercises, collaboration and intuitive, self-expressive exploration. Come and join this unique and supportive creative experience and be prepared to surprise yourself with your own unique creative expression.

This workshop is open to all levels of experience. Wherever you are in your creative journey is the right place for you to be.
