Presentation: Decision Making in the Painting Process

Thursday September 27 2018, 6:30 – 8:30

I’ll be giving a presentation called ‘Decision Making in the Painting Process’ at artEAST on September 27th.

The talk will focus on questions artists ask ourselves as we paint, for example:

How do I make decisions when I paint? How do I know what to keep and what to change? What do I base my decisions on? What can I do when I get stuck?

I will be discussing this topic using a slideshow of my paintings in process. You’ll have a chance to see paintings from start to finish as I describe how and why I made the choices I did. I’ll also bring finished and unfinished paintings to look at and consider as a group.

There will be time at the end of the program to look at some of your paintings. Bring one of your favorite stuck paintings for the group to consider and discuss. We’ll use a lottery to choose whose paintings we’ll look at.

**This Salon is open to Members and Non-Members of artEAST. Bring a friend!

**Bring a painting you’d like to look at with the group to get ideas for moving it forward.

**People who attend will receive a $25 off coupon for an initial 1 ½ hour Creativity Coaching session with Jacqui (regular price is $135) or $15 off a one hour Creativity Coaching session.
