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.
