John Fisher will guide participants through an abstract beginning to a fully developed image. We will work initially creating a rich abstract composition. From random strokes specific images begin to appear, to present ideas from our subconscious mind. We will refine these images into finished works of art.


“Creating is a profoundly philosophical and spiritual act of faith. My marble sculptures are carved spontaneously and intuitively, relying upon years of observation and the discipline of drawing. I have lived and worked for many years in Europe, primarily in Italy, giving me a notable lean towards the classical. However, my approach is initially abstract. I begin by scribbling, working abstractly, then from the abstract I begin to see images which are developed into a finished piece.”
