Does your art life need a jumpstart? Or maybe a multivitamin? Are you looking for silver linings to these current crises? Now is a great time to focus on nourishing your own art practice with the good company of fellow artists.

This workshop aims to inspire new approaches, fresh momentum, and renewed energy for making images, whatever your medium. Our format combines discussion, short exercises and assignments, with slideshows of contemporary & historical artists. Sharing and discussing your own work each week helps to spark inspiration, build momentum and foster comradery. Weekly prompts and exercises are designed to open up your enjoyment of your own process, identify snags and clarify your strengths. Slideshows provide wide-ranging imagery grouped by theme, including marks & energy, space & negative space, and evoking vs. describing. This approach encourages you to take risks, expand your reach, and find structures that support your own art process.

Our emphasis over the six weeks is on exploration and encouragement, as you clarify your ideas, connect with your instincts, and deepen your authentic expression.

Workshop fee includes an additional half-hour phone call with each artist for individual feedback.
