It is well known that Einstein made his astonishing discoveries by using his visual imagination. Although this course won’t make you an Einstein, it will teach you, in simple terms, the building blocks of the creative process and how to develop your visual imagination. Rather than being just another “how to paint” workshop, this is aimed at virtually anyone who wants to understand how to generate and develop any kind of visual idea. This will be a fun and very useful course in creative thinking and visualization through exercises on paper with pen, crayon and paintbrush where special art skills are not necessarily required. All materials will be supplied.

Workshop: February 7-8, 2018

Cost: $185m/$215nm

About the Instructor:

imageArtist, musician, educator, and author Bill Buchman has been active as a painter and musician for over fifty years and studied early on with distinguished artists, Fletcher Martin, Robert Richenburg, and Victor D’Amico. Bill studied Fine Arts at Cornell University and English at Boston University and received a Bachelor’s Degree and a Master’s Degree in Music from the New England Conservatory where he studied with many eminent musicians including Ran Blake, Jaki Byard and George Russell. After a stint of twenty years painting, exhibiting, and performing in Europe, Bill established his studio in Sarasota in 2001. When not painting, exhibiting his work or playing his music, Bill gives workshops and seminars on creativity, abstraction and figure drawing. His five DVDs on these subjects and his innovative book, “Expressive Figure Drawing” (Random House 2010) are quite popular. Bill has developed a unique teaching approach infused with Zen and Modernist ideas with which he has been inspiring and empowering aspiring artists locally and nationally for nearly two decades. His abstractions and expressive figure drawings are in private and public collections in the US, Denmark, Sweden, England and he is represented in Sarasota by the Allyn Gallup Gallery.  www.figuredrawing.org
