Snowing in Santa Fe

The wind is kicking up and it is snowing on the first day of February.

I have recently had participants inquire about my next intensive workshop to work through barriers or what might seem like dead ends in their art practice.

You might want to check out the lectures on George Land- he states that creativity is actually un-learned in our society. It has been studied that 5 year old' s hold more creativity and the ability to think outside of the box more than an adult. this not surprise me. Having taught adults for twenty years - our main focus is usually on how to re-capture the innocence and trust in simple mark making that we had when we were young. We are quickly moving from the information age to the conceptual age and with that we need more art- based learning practices to help carry us into our trust to produce more creative problem solving for our planet!
