With Tom Monahan

2-Day Workshop

Tues. & Weds., September 5 & 6, 9am-3pm

Workshop Fee: Members $140

Non-members $190

Every artist’s work is forever evolving. Sometimes at a glacial pace. Sometimes by leaps.

This workshop is for those who’d like to explore how to jolt their creative process, even keep creative growth humming indefinitely. It’s for artists of all experience levels who create in most all 2D media.

We’ll be addressing more the mental side of creating art than the doing aspect. The workshop will look at the method to the madness of creativeness, many of the undeniable principles and patterns of creating that have worked for artists and others since time immemorial. Perhaps, more importantly we’ll also look at factors that limit creativity for most people.

Workshop leader Tom Monahan is an exhibiting artist member of the Providence Art Club. After a successful career as an award-winning advertising creative director where freshness was demanded daily, Tom became a creative thinking coach for over 20 years. He’s conducted more than 1,000 programs similar to this workshop, helping individuals in a wide range of creative applications, including fine art.

Tom doesn’t believe creativity can be taught. But this workshop is designed to help people rediscover the vast creative resources they once had as children, when free thinking permeated everything they did.
