My Teaching Rationale
Human beings from the very beginning of history have felt compelled to make drawn and painted representations of the visual world and still do so even after the invention of many other image-making technologies. I believe the endurance of the hand-drawn or painted picture lies in the deeply significant if not spiritual experience of the artist as the picture is made. When we learn to draw or paint we learn to let go of expectations about the outcome of our work and settle into pure observation – seeing in the present moment. This process of 'seeing' aesthetically/artistically can be a deeply grounding and fulfilling experience for the artist. My courses represent an opportunity for like-minded people to be together in a friendly and supportive environment, as we gently explore what it feels like to really see – to take in the beauty of nature and the harmony of appearance.
