Paint Yourself Free!
Does the title of my upcoming on-line class have appeal? (I hope so because it is too late to change it!)
Paint Yourself Free! definitely fits my way of instructing.
An interesting aspect of freedom is that often you find greater creativity and freedom when you impose constraints.
With just a few colors, a few tools and a few methods of restraining doubts and fears, I have witnessed hundreds of my students make incredibly personal and fascinating paintings.
Do you want some added inspiration, a new twist on your studio methods, or do you want take your creative life more seriously? Maybe you're someone who has never painted but wants to try. (If not now, when?) I have a valuable class for you.
I am nearing the finish line of compiling video demonstrations and audio instruction you can listen to while you are painting; and I'm composing printable worksheets, information about art materials and my inspirational reading list.
Very soon Paint Yourself Free! will be available!

Stephen Nachmanovitch's book, Free Play: Improvisation in Life and Art , addresses notions that I have been teaching for years...play, curiosity, ability to work with what shows up (improvisation), non-judgmental observation, and limiting the vast universe of options.
Welcome everyone! There will be some fun happening here. Hot tips for art-making, opportunities to laugh at me, musings about the mystery of life, and information about scheduled events.
