Are You Inspired?

"Sunrise, Sunset"
My next series of classes begin this Friday, May 15th and are open to all media. We will each explore the idea of working on a series of paintings or drawings finding subjects that inspire us personally. So everyone will be working on "their own thing"!

Why work in a series? Here are some things to think about...

  • Thinking deeply about a subject and exploring it fully usually makes for better art
  • By creating a body of work in a series you give journalists and bloggers something they can use to craft stories about you and your work
  • Painting a series of a subject you have painted before can help if you are "stuck" for a subject
  • If you did a really nice painting of a bird's nest, why not try some more? You benefit from your experience! 

Theme & Inspiration
Fridays, 1 - 4 PM
May 15th to June 19th
Northlight Art Center, Amenia, NY
$240/six sessions
Where do we get our inspiration for painting? How can we kick-start some ideas for paintings with a theme? What subjects really speak to us? In this series we will find our individual creative voices to plan a personal journey in art making. All 2-D mediums are invited - drawing, oil, acrylic, pastel or watercolor. 

Please contact me if you want to enroll in the class!!!
