January Talks in Massachusetts
I will be giving a new version of my Art Lessons talk twice in my local area in January. I’ve changed the title to Art Lessons: Learning from our Creative Experiences, and thinking that it may change again. Where the talks I had been giving involved me sharing my work chronologically with reflections along the way, this one is designed around themes represented by quotes. Here’s the blurb:
Join Susan Kapuscinski Gaylord for a talk about art and creativity. Susan believes that everyone is creative and that exercising our creativity makes us happier and more fully human. In this illustrated talk she shares her 35 year history in the arts (calligraphy, book-making, digital compositions) and the hard-won truths she has learned: the importance of patience, the development of the critical eye, making peace with the desire for perfection, and the idea that an artist's best teacher is the work itself. Her goal is to put the audience in touch with their own creative experiences whether they be art, crafts, music, writing, cooking, gardening, fashion, or home decorating.
