Did you know “Kamikaze” is a Japanese word meaning “divine wind”?
Rest assured we won’t be participating in the more popular definition: A Japanese aircraft loaded with explosives and making a deliberate suicidal crash on an enemy target.
 
But our inner critic might get a little insulted as we ignore it in our quest to deliberately let go into the creative gales encountered as we quickly discover  simple, new victories in art expression and mindfulness.
 
Kamikaze at San Diego Writer's Ink
Tuesday May 21 6:30 -8:30 pm
 
This workshop combines art and writing for a greater experience of both. You will dabble in foolproof right brain sketching to access more creativity for both writing and art even if you’re sure you can only draw stick figuresFleeting multimedia projections, poetry, music, and the absurd will trick you into effortlessly colliding with your true creative voice without overthinking or scaring it away. The perfectionistic tendencies, hesitancy, and/or immobilizing self-judgment that stop many people from accessing deeper levels of creativity will be terribly confused and ask to be excused from this workshop.  
 
You will experience:
• Ways to sketch that defy self-doubt and the terror of not being able to draw more than a stick figure.
• The unleashing of a deeper creative voice for both writing and art.
• Generating drawings and writing so fast the inner critic is caught off-guard.
• The accumulation of writing starters for poetry, prose, or simply the enjoyment of writing.
• The mindfulness that comes from the attention required with drawing from the right-side of the brain.

____________________________ 
In this fun two-day workshop, you will discover how sketching and watercolor painting can be easier, relaxing, and addictive.
 
Jill will teach you methods of drawing and painting using wild abandon techniques that inspire new directions and define your artistic voice (even if you think you can’t draw a stick-figure). We will relax on location in the charming Portland Sellwood neighborhood while rendering simple paintings with newly discovered tools and tricks.
 
The perfectionistic tendencies, hesitancy, and/or immobilizing self-judgment that stop many people from accessing deeper levels of creativity or even feel free to “begin” will be terribly confused and ask to be excused from this workshop.
 
Include:
#1
How to be liberated from what stops you from letting loose into your art. 
 
#2 
Finding your voice exercises- We all already have an artistic voice. You will get better acquainted with yours and take it to the next level.
 
#3 
How to render outside scenes with abbreviated whimsy and added fancy.  We will be sitting by homes from the turn of last century and some great city and river scenes in walking distance.  If you've never done this, this is a good workshop to venture into this mindful experience of sitting outside and immersing yourself in art.
