Inspiration is in the tip of your brush,” or so said Francis Bacon, the great mid-century British painter. Julia Cameron, author of The Artist’s Way, says “The refusal to be creative is self-will and is counter to our nature.” This course is for all who wish to open the throttle on their creative flow. In this studio course based on Cameron’s influential book, participants will learn to nurture their creativity through daily writing, ‘artist dates’, and in-class mixed-media projects. These will be supplemented with slide lectures focusing on artist’s practices and the psychology of art making. The course is appropriate for those new to art as well as veterans of the studio, and for artists of all media, including dance, writing, and music as well as the visual arts. Artists covered include Cy Twombly, Martha Graham, Elza Mayhew, William Anastasi, Kara Walker, Andy Warhol, and more. Suitable for beginners. Required Textbook: Julia Cameron, The Artist's Way, Penguin Random House (the textbook is also available in local book and art stores).
