Writing about Art: The Agony and the Ecstasy

November 11, 2016

When first learning the Language of Visual Arts, it is normal to become overwhelmed by concerns of whether we are doing it correctly.  The terms may seem confusing and difficult to comprehend.  In this podcast we discuss the challenges that come with identifying the Elements of Art and integrating them into an analysis of the Principles of Design.  Through practice, we come to better “see” a work of art or design in new and more dynamic ways.  We expand our scope to include why style and subject matter are important, the significance of historical and cultural context, and how art functions in society. While the process of writing about art can be daunting, we are rewarded with a deeper understanding of art, the artists who create it, and the arc of time within which they are made.

New and improved

April 15, 2016

Do more. Do it faster. Do it better. Be better!  In today’s culture we are bombarded with images and tag lines that tell us simply, we are not enough. We are stalked and chased down the path of having to hustle for our worthiness. This path leads to a rabbit hole, where we find ourselves feeling as though no matter how hard we try, it’s never enough. It’s no wonder the rates of depression and anxiety are at an all time high. It’s time for a change of pace. New and Improved is an honest and fun discussion about how to take the best care of yourself in order to be the best version of you. We will learn how to push back against the language of “I’m too busy” and you will learn how to embrace a new language of “I am worthy”. During this first segment, we will learn to the embrace the idea of a new and improved version of ourselves without changing a thing! Practical, tips, tools and resources will be provided.
