January 2012 art workshops for you
The connection between reducing stress & creativity...
what's the real way to effect change in 2012 for you ?

Jacqueline uses M.Graham walnut oil paints

If you've already been to one of my workshops, you know the paints are lusciously creamy, environmentally green and user friendly. You may have even tried them at the workshop. Isn't it good not to have to add smelly mediums, turps or thinners to the paint ? So many artists I talk with say they've given up oils because of the smell.  These paints are also competitive in price, but if money were no object, I'd still use them !

Preferred by artists for over five centuries...

oil color ground in walnut oil provides rich, vibrant color with greater freedom of control over all types of painting application. Free flowing and slower drying, walnut oil enables delicate passages of finely blended color, rich jewel-like glazes or juicy full brush application with no addition of solvents. Because of walnut oil's unique refractive index and non-yellowing nature, colors ground in this fine oil are naturally more alive and brilliant. They retain their clarity and are free from the discoloration associated with other drying oils.

Artists often feel they exist in relation to their work & the environment they work in - it's where they 'really' exist...

What is the connection between creativity and

reducing your stress level?


I was recently interviewed for a short article about the connection between creativity and reducing your stress level. Creativity is a part of a healthy coping strategy. It touches on a basic communication skill and read the article here


5th annual DAY in an ARTIST'S STUDIO - February 5, 2012

I often have people stop and watch me paint & most times tell me they wish they could paint or want me to know they could never draw anything but a stick figure. Bet you may have had that happen, too. The myth is, this is what people have been told - the truth is everyone is creative and everyone can use creativity to better their lives.

The "Day in an Artist's Studio" is one of the most different workshops that I offer. I base this workshop on the experience...on learning to use all of your senses to channel into your painting experience. This is just the tip of the iceberg, an intro to what it's like to paint outdoors.

First, starting with actually working at my studio, then engaging a relaxing, informal atmosphere with a cozy fire in the fireplace, soft inspirational music, a colorful & interesting subject to work from...then add in the opportunity to paint with M. Graham fabulous walnut oil paints and we'll be serving a light lunch & perhaps enjoy a cup or two of gourmet coffee or tea. In this relaxing atmosphere,conducive to creativity, you will also receive the instruction and encouragement to be able to paint your own oil painting, whether or not you've ever picked up a brush before. This workshop is all about the experience and the realization that you can utilize any form of creativity to communicate and reduce stress in your everyday life.

And in the process you have a fun day - why not register and share with a friend ? ALL DETAILS HERE

Never compare your talent with others.
