Spark your creativity in Mary Daniel Hobson’s new workshop!

with Mary Daniel Hobson

Do you want to take your work to the next level? Do you want help shaping your vision? Are you looking for a supportive community to help you stay committed to your craft? Our Cultivating Creativity workshop can help you do just that!

Led by mixed media artist Mary Daniel Hobson, the core of each class will be looking at each other’s work. Every session will give participants 10-20 minutes each to share work in progress, receive kind and constructive feedback, and leave inspired to keep moving forward. Everyone will be coached by the instructor to articulate their next steps, which become their personalized assignment to complete for the next session.

In addition, Hobson will bring in ideas, images, and exercises to spark your creativity. Topics will be tailored to the group’s needs, but may include: finding your rhythm, vision statements, moving through resistance, creative play, balancing intention & intuition, shaping a portfolio/series, and how to best take your work out into the world.

All visual media and all levels of experience are welcome. The only requirement is a sincere commitment to your creative practice. If possible, please bring works in tactile form – i.e. printed photographs, collages, paintings, etc. Please be prepared to show your own work at the first session.

The Image Flow will offer a discount for students of  11 x 17 prints on Epson Premium Luster paper for $12.
