Upcoming Fine Art Classes
Fine Art Department
Instructors: Joan Stanford & Marilyn Hagar
– Pablo Picasso
Do you remember what it was like to create as a child? No judgement, no pressure, no critiques, just for the joy of it. The good news is that that wild child still lives inside of us and has just been waiting to come out and play once again. In this workshop we will open communication with our creative essence, fling open the doors to the images that are alive inside of us, feed the fire of our imaginations, and discover our ability to express something meaningful about our lives through the arts. We are all artists. It comes with being human, but in a culture that teaches art as achievement rather than personal expression, we may have turned to those we think of as artists to make art for us thus separating from a vital part of ourselves.
In a safe, supportive environment, we will invite playful exploration, follow our intuition, and let our images speak. Absolutely no experience is necessary, just a willingness to be open to the idea that the gift of creative expression belongs to all of us.
