Channeling Your Creativity

Learn how to analyze what propels your creative choices. We will discuss studying the threads and themes of your paintings and how to take the next step in expanding your creativity in those directions. I will share the essential elements I look for in scenes to paint and encourage you to arrive at your own list of “essentials.” I will also share creative ideas I have come up with to stage interesting plein air and studio paintings. You will be encouraged to be flexible and alert to painting possibilities wherever you go in the future.

Power point presentation of art to get your wheels turning. We will cover incorporating information from plein air work into larger studio paintings. Questions and discussion welcome! There will be instructor demos and students will paint outdoors as well as from a model.

Nancy-Boren Workshop Instructor Tubac School of Fine Art LLCNancy Boren’s first painting, a watercolor, was done at age 12 while sitting next to her artist father, James Boren, as he painted at the Grand Canyon. Since then her work has included original print making and oil painting. Figures, both western and otherwise, remain her favorite subject although she enjoys forays into landscape and plein air also.
In 2016 she was awarded the Bronze Medal at the Oil Painters of America National Show. Boren has also exhibited at the National Arts Club in New York, the Gilcrease Museum, The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame, and the national juried shows of the Outdoor Painters’ Society, American Women Artists, and the American Impressionist Society. Her painting, Aloft in the Western Sky, is part of the permanent collection of the Booth Western Art Museum in Georgia.
Nancy Boren loves discussing creativity and the joys of knowing your creative spirit. As author Elizabeth Gilbert says we all have jewels buried within and it is up to us to discover them through our inquisitive, creative work.
