In the photographs below, Lori Harley leads us through an entire series of games designed to help us get to know each other, open up the channels of creativity and to lower any anxiety levels that some may have about their experience levels compared to others around them.
Every persons learning experience was equally as important as anyone else's, beginning painters as well as master artist were elbow to elbow in many cases and it was very important not to be intimidated by that.
If you are in these photos or if you were sitting in the audience with me watching this hypnosis exercise, you've gotta be laughing out loud right now seeing these images and remembering how silly the whole thing was.
From start to finish, this convention was an amazing experience and if I can figure out how to put the whole thing together in the midst of my heavy work schedule, I can definitely see the "possibilities" of entertaining with paints in my future. In other words I have been inspired!!!
Still more great photos to come.
