NEW. CLASSES. IN ART & CREATIVE THINKING
Location: My studio and home in Eastover/Sedgewood, near uptown Charlotte and Southpark Meadowbrook Road. Off Randolph near Wendover.
Making art is complete only when it makes the circle and goes out and is seen by others. The same is true for sharing what I know about being an artist. I feel called now to open my studio, to mentor and nurture the creative spirits of young artists. The group will stay very small, a maximum of six students per day, for two hours a day, so that each child gets highly personal, individual attention.
Artmaking by a local Artist – centered on art that is local, that has roots, too, in Charlotte
Students will be mentored in my personal studio surrounded by art and paintings, and will, in addition to making their own art, will be exposed to the whys and hows of my own inspirational life. What does living creatively life look and feel like?
Nurturing your child’s creative spirit encourages an open mind, a mind able to problem solve, a mind able to concentrate and focus. Daniel Pink’s book A Whole New Mind explains much about the value of creative thinking.
