A major part of this workshop is to help you with your creative foundations. What are the roadblocks that keep you from being creative? Have past experiences tainted the way that you see yourself in light of being and feeling creative? What are some spiritual and practical tools that I can use to stay in a place of creativity most of the time? These are all excellent questions that we will work on. Susan's role is to facilitate the spirit and soul aspects of remaining creative, and Mark's role is to help you with the artistic and technical aspects of photography, which for this workshop is our chosen medium for expressing ourselves.
Each morning Susan will lead an opening prayer time inviting Holy Spirit to help us in not only increasing our creativity, but sustaining it over the long term. Susan will lead group discussions on common problems that we have all encountered, and solutions that we can share with each other. These group sessions are a fantastic means to prove to yourself that everyone has creative blocks, but those blocks don't need to stay with you!
Susan will also be organizing one-on-one sessions to help you pull away from any hindrances that have crept in within your history, so you can move forward with a fully expressive and creative life.
Mark loves teaching the art and science of photography, and is looking forward to helping you master your own camera. Mark's desire is that your camera (regardless of make and model, mobile or DSLR) be used as the chosen tool for creative self expression. With Mark's artistic and technical proficiency, plus Susan's counseling acumen, we are very confident that you will depart the workshop with a very high level of expressive creativity!
