About the Event
These sessions are some of my favourites to hold. It is romantic, with the lights of the town and ocean views in the background. It is captivating, as the nude model demands a sense of presence and bring a sense of novelty to the practice. It is playful, as I instruct the class in my normal open-looped style and with deep awareness of the cultivation of creativity... and this month we have live music by Thabo Krouwkam!
DON'T MISS THIS!
Last month's workshop was cancled due to me having the flu, but know I am more than healthy and ready to muse with y'all again! We are still focusing on the themes that come with a creative fall season. This is when we start to slow down and go more internal; this is when production dwindles down and we start to consolidate and catalogue what we have made. When fall comes on it can be frightening to those not in sync with their natural cycle, because it might feel like you will never create again. An avoidence strategy that I often see in my work with creatives, is to fixate on the details. Instead of allowing the natural decline of productive creative energy, they torture themselves with perfectionism, pressure to make more work and "professionalism".
In this class I want to share a technique that can help you create more non-directionally and therefore affords your inner artist the space to go through whatever season s(he) has to. This class is suitable for beginners all the way to experts as it is not so much about how to draw a body, but rather new processes to use in the act of art-making.
