The focus is on YOU… helping you EXPLORE and GROW your artistic voice. You’ll learn about the elements – style, skill, subject, matter, medium, consistency, and story – that define your personal and powerful artistic voice. Using tools and creative prompts, you’ll explore and develop each of these elements. Get clear about who you are and why you create. Focus on your purpose and your work. Become more of who you are and let go of who you learned to be. Lean into what you feel. What you create. What you express. During the workshop, you’ll: • Explore the meaning of “artistic voice” and why it matters to you and your art • Uncover and mature your own artistic voice • Lean how to create unique, personal art that is different from others • Identify challenges and limiting beliefs, and learn how to redefine/refocus • Develop a plan for your dedicated practice that will allow it to continue to evolve • Celebrate YOU and your unique voice Bring your art supplies – paper, canvas, paint, brushes, mix media. All mediums and styles welcome. Each day includes lecture, discussion, exploration, toolkit work, and open studio time for you to explore your visual voice. Registration includes lunch and refreshments. Beverly Todd www.btoddarts.com Beverly is Chief Getaway Artist at Santa Fe Artist Getaway. After 25 years as a corporate executive, Beverly returned to art undertaking master studies with several of the country’s leading abstract teachers. She now blends and shares her passions - fine art, art-based learning, mentoring and leadership development - through Santa Fe Artist Getaway. In 2018, Beverly began painting in Santa Fe, and wanted to give other creatives the same experience, opening Santa Fe Artist Getaway in 2020. Through large-scale abstract painting, Beverly interprets nature. Connects with ideas. And explores emotion. Her painting process is physical, using hardware-store brushes. Broken sticks. Rags. And hands. To move paint. To add layers. To pull back layers. To drip. To scrape and wipe. And to pull the paint across the surface. Beverly grew up in rural America near Union, Nebraska. Often happily lost for hours in the open prairie landscape that inspires her work today. Beverly is a member of the Creativity Coaching Association.
