Workshop: Immerse Yourself in the Process

Sat & Sun, Oct. 17 & 18, 9:30-5:30pm, 2015


An experiential painting and drawing workshop with Diana Sanford

Ever wonder why we “play” music but do art “work”? Come and practice improvising in this playful, interactive workshop. The ability to be spontaneous, receptive and in the moment is vital in our creative process. In this workshop, through carefully structured exercises, you’ll train your brain to readily engage the spontaneous mode, strengthening it to become an equal partner in your art making. This is a fun, interactive and intense workshop open to all adults with basic comfort with the materials.

Diana Sanford has a degree in painting from the University of California at Santa Barbara, College of Creative Studies, and a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology. This workshop is a product of her many years as a psychotherapist in private practice with a strong interest in neurobiology, her even more years painting and observing her own struggles in the studio, and her love of teaching. You can find out more about her on her website
