Finding Your Next Step Workshop

Catherine Judge

A creative process is just that, a process tha can be enhanced by delving into one's relationships to the arts.  Artists often have a dynmaic vision for where they want to go with their work- the question is, How?  Artist and educator Catherine Judge will guide you through a toolbox of creative process exercises such as inner visualization and Paratore's design analysis that you'll take back to the studio.  Participants should bring a notebook, an example of your artwork and Business cards.
