Play as Creative Process with Martha Wakefield

Play as Creative Process with Martha Wakefield

Join the Cambridge Art Association on Sunday, April 18 for Play as Creative Process with Martha Wakefield, a virtual workshop inviting artists to discover the importance of play in their artistic practice. As defined by the dictionary, the verb "play" means to engage in activity for enjoyment and recreation rather than a serious or practical purpose. The goal of this class is to help artists improve creativity, explore new ideas as well as to stay inspired and motivated. This will be achieved through a series of brand new exercises engaging with both traditional as well as non-traditional painting materials.

For students who have attended Embrace the Creative Process, these new exercises build on those from past workshops. The program is open to artists willing to experiment, take chances and play! Admission is $125 for members and $150 for nonmembers.

Martha Wakefield, artist, instructor plus mentor, has been teaching artists of all skill levels at art organizations in the Boston area for many years. Wakefield has created and continues to teach the following workshops: Alchemy of Color I & II, Embrace the Sketchbook, FEED Your Creative Soul and Intro to Cold Wax Medium with Oil. She creates a supportive environment helping artists from understanding the basics of painting to discovering as well as encouraging their unique voices. Wakefield's own work explores the fragility of memory. She is intrigued by how memory morphs from persistent vividness to fleeting passages to total loss. Wakefield has won many awards for her work plus is featured in private in addition to corporate collections internationally. She is represented by Powers Gallery in Acton, MA.
