Class: Sources of Inspiration ( Walnut Creek, CA )

“Do you want to understand the creative process better or learn to see your work in a new way? Through a slide lecture of my own creative process and development, three creative hands on projects and class discussions, we will explore what moves us, what we are attracted to, and how that influences the work we do. Our aim is greater and more personal artistic creativity.  Each of us works intuitively in a different way, and when we learn to better know our likes and strengths, our artwork blossoms. Inspiration can come from materials, techniques or concepts. We will explore each of these in turn and share what we learn about the artist within us. The class will include one exercise in plaiting, but no previous experience is necessary. This class is suitable to all those who work with their hands and want to develop their creativity.”

In April, WSN member Barbara Shapiro is teaching a class focused on helping students, “explore what moves us, what we are attracted to, and how that influences the work we do.” The class includes several assigned projects as well as a slide lecture explaining the instructor’s own creative process and development. If you live in the area, and are a practicing artist or just beginning , we encourage you to check out the class. Here is a link to the class website:
