Workshop

Learning to let go

Last month I had the honor to lead a workshop of Creative Expression to a group of creatives in Central Florida.  It was an amazing experience that I will never forget. We started with a white paper, and I guided them through the experience of letting go of control to encourage their pure form of expression.

Watching them become fearless against the process and letting me guide them through the unknown was very fulfilling. Some of them even said that they didn't feel that way since they were in school (mission accomplished).

We even had our own baristas from Prodigal making the magic potion that made us create so well!!!

I always get very anxious and nervous before giving a workshop and when I complete them, there is a big feeling of accomplishment for me.  But the must important thing, is knowing I made a difference in the creative process of a person.   

One day I will like to take this workshops around the world...  one day I will!!

Thank you for reading!!!!!

Full Circle

Hi there....Mondays are hard, specially since my kids school is over, everybody is in vacation mode.  Except, we still have to work.  How I wish I was a kid again, and stay all day playing and thinking of nothing!!! hahaha.  But last week I made me a little gift, I enrolled myself in "summer camp", an art work shop.  Its been awhile since I took an online workshop, but when I saw Misty Mawn Full Circle, I just couldn't help myself.  I love her painting style, and her artistic approach.  So far, its been a really good experience, she even makes music playlist to get the muse going.  In one of those playlist I discovered Ane Brun, have you heard her?... Its a moody type of music, perfect for getting in the "zone".

I've painted Mandalas, and made drawings of disproportional ladies.... but you know? I like to push myself, even if I hate drawing, because painting is my prefer medium.  One must keep practicing and go beyond our comfort zone.  So, I hope this little online summer camp, brings me closer to create and make art everyday.  You have to watch this video Mindy made, its everything I feel, how could someone you don't know feel exactly the same way as you do?... Well, an artist heart must be duplicated in a million places around the world.  

Have a great week!!!
