Kamikaze Drawing 

Sunday, April 7, 2-4 p.m.


You will experience:

• Ways to sketch that defy self-doubt and the terror of not being able to draw more than a stick figure.
• The unleashing of a deeper creative voice for both writing and art.
• Generating drawings and writing so fast the inner critic is caught off-guard.
• The accumulation of writing starters for poetry, prose, or simply the enjoyment of writing.
• The mindfulness that comes from the attention required with drawing from the right-side of the brain.

Retreats in Taos, New Mexico

The Mabel Dodge Luhan House in Taos, New Mexico makes that state possible.
Creative minds from Georgia O'Keeffe and D.H. Lawrence to Ansel Adams and Dennis Hopper came to there to be inspired. The placement is magical in relation to the mountains, the sky, and easy access to the dining room where the food is so good that people get quiet. Come experience the inspiration for yourself.
I'm an introvert too, don't let that stop you. We need our tribe.

Two retreats annually to choose from:
Four nights, five days.
Meals, room and board, workshops included
