This workshop will embrace the painting process and the importance of daily practice as a path to improving creativity and image making skills. Over the course of the workshop students will paint at least 10 panels, guided by an artist who has made over 3900 daily, consecutive, paintings- so far! A combination of demos, in-class assignments and individual instruction will teach students techniques to create fresh, deliberate marks. Using acrylic or oil paint students will discover approaches to simplify the process of painting and ways to stay inspired and motivated. The path to daily painting starts with you!. Learn how to loosen up, connect with your personal style and stay motivated and inspired. All levels welcome. Lunch & refreshments included in registration fee. www.lisadariakennedy.com ABOUT LISA Lisa Daria Kennedy grew up along the northeast edge of the Hockomock Swamp in Massachusetts.

THE DAILY PAINTING PROJECT I’ve been making one small painting every single day for the last 3600 days. After ten years, I've no intention of stopping. Having cancer as a young adult, I discovered living is not just surviving. At age 29, I was a lead artist in the giftware industry when I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. After six rounds of chemotherapy, one month of radiation, and now, years of monitoring to make sure I’m still cancer free, my perspective has changed. Young and faced with an existential crisis, I questioned, who am I? What does it all mean? Psychologically, existentially, transcendentally - what can a life amount to? I was acutely aware of all the time I’d wasted and the things I put off - like painting. But, like a lot of artists, I had trouble working up momentum. After all I had been through, the idea of starting an artistic project and failing was terrifying. I had a moment of clarity and pared the creative process down to this one idea - show up for the job.
