Mining for Your Creative DNA

When the work of a truly remarkable artist is recognized, their signature becomes visible, even when not literally present. What is recognized in such instances is the artist's "Creative DNA": a term coined by dancer and choreographer Twyla Tharp. This class includes discussions, readings, including Twyla Tharp's book, The Creative Habit, and writing exercises. When combined with studio practice and critiques, these methods will enable students to find their muses, name their intentions, and strengthen their unique personal creative voices. / Materials fee of $5  in addition to course tuition. / Open to students ages 18 and above. / View complete policies.

Prerequisite: Previous drawing and/or painting experience.

What to bring: Pen or pencil; notebook or sketchbook. A complete list of suggested materials will be discussed during the first class meeting.
