Courageously Creative Artist Workshops

 

Workshops Developed Specifically for Women

 



“Remember that life is not measured by the number of breaths we take,

but by the moments that take our breath away!” -Anonymous

 




•Does your head get in the way of your creativity?

•Does having more focus on creativity, connection and imagination resonate with you?

•Do you wish you were more "courageously creative"?

•Have you felt creatively disconnected/stifled and now want to embark on finding a more focused true authentic and creative self?

•Do you get caught up with the technical aspects of photography and lose inspiration?

•Do you have great ideas swimming around in your head but just don't know how to bring them to fruition?


If you have answered yes to any of these questions, our Courageously Creative Workshop is perfect for you.


In a world of chaotic demands, life pulls us in many different directions.  It can be difficult to focus on what is necessary for your creative life to flourish.  However, when you quiet an overtaxed mind and become “present”, you will then be able to find your inspiration and tap into your inner artistic vision. Trust your intuition and become the creative, productive soul you have dreamt of being!


In our Courageously Creative Workshops, you will meet other creative women on a similar quest. We encourage you to step away from your preconceptions of creativity and embrace an attitude of openness while you reconnect with your intuition and learn to focus deeply and authentically.  Through guided self exploration, you will learn to see with your heart, explore new thoughts and attitudes with regard to your own art, and inspire imagination and connection between yourself and your camera.

 


 

“Don't wait for the ship to come in, swim out to meet it." - Cathy Hopkins

 


 

Each of workshops will each be different although most will incorporate meditation and breathing techniques along with fun exercises to help you connect with your artistic soul. Some will focus on the landscape but most will be about finding beauty in the world around you by learning how to really see and feel. We will offer many opportunities for one-on-one time that will allow you to sit with either one of us. During this time, we can work with you on anything that interests you from image critique, post processing, camera settings, composition or even just chatting about life and creative paths.


Each person is going to have a unique experience in our workshops and take different things home with them. Our intentions are to create the best workshop for you and thus we hope to help you with the following ideas:


  • Exploration of the artist within yourself
  • Opening creative pathways to reach your true creative self
  • Expanding your mind and opening your heart and trusting your vision
  • Falling in love with photography for the first time or all over again
  • Learning to switch from the “logic” side of the brain to the intuitive side, and trusting that process
  • Connect with other women on a similar journey and forming personal bonds with like minded people
  • Have fun!!!

 


“Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes and having fun!" -Mary Lou Cook


 

Who are our workshops are for?

YOU, the professional photographer or YOU, the obsessed amateur. Even YOU, the smartphone photographer who knows that the best camera is the one that is with you.  But it is also for the YOU who wants to experience all or even some of the things that we mentioned above.


  • Are you the professional photographer whose passion has stalled?
  • Are you an amateur photographer longing to take that next brave step?
  • Do you love taking pictures but don’t know where to focus your attention?
  • Are you an artist who paints from their own images?
  • Are you looking for opportunities to travel to new places with fun creative ladies?
  • Are you a beginner who gets inspiration from other artists and you want to be a part of this special society?

Join me, along with my colleague, Paige Eden for one of these unique workshops open to women who are looking to reconnect with their creative spirit. The goal of our workshop is to learn how to recognize and trust your intuition, to help you develop your vision, and realize your personal artistic journey. As lifelong professional photographers, we emphasize personal style and artistic express. As artists, our creativity is not limited to what a cold, mechanical device such as a camera can see. Creativity begins with first seeing, then capturing and finally enhancing the photographs using software or traditional techniques.

Private or Custom Workshops

Can't fit one of our workshops into your schedule? I also offer private workshops as well as custom created workshops. In my custom created workshops, if you have a group or five to twelve women who would like to participate together in a workshop, we can create something for you. Depending on the size of the group, one or both of us can meet your group in your location of choice. Please contact me for details.
