As we grow and change, so do the images that keep

us engaged with our artistic process.  We might be

able to move forward and continue making art, but at

some point artists have to STOP, step out of everyday

life and devote time to become fully present with their art making

process for it to thrive.

There is a relationship inherent in making art that requires tending and nurturing.

The Terreno Concept:

Together, we will work with the Italian wine making

concept of terreno, as we apply it to the creative process.

Terreno: /ter’ reno/ adj  sense of place, personal 

connection with the earth, being present.

Wine tasters define terreno as specificity of

place, land, weather affecting the character, quality,

and personality of the wine.


We will explore how making art, sleeping

and eating among Mabel Dodge Luhan House, Plaza of Historical Taos, the Labyrinth and

sculpture garden informs our art making while

forging a deeper connection with our own sense of

place, our own personal terreno and how that effects

our art’s color, character and personality.

moving with your art and

engaging in dialogue with your imagery as companions.

This artistic dance is primary to all art making yet is often

It is from this place, this ability to stay present, that authentic art emerges.


Decompress and renew your personal artistic identity.

In the end you will leave with helpful expressive arts

processes, tools and mixed media techniques to

continue taking your art to a new level.
