We tell each other stories every day.
It may be a simple story, what happened at the grocery store, or it may be a much more complicated one full of elements from our past. Whatever the story may be, we have a drive to communicate, and we do it with stories.
This workshop contains a series of exercises that are designed to help the artist see their creative process from a different point of view. By moving from simple grammar exercises to simple drawing exercises the workshop attendee is made more aware of the narrative power of the visual image and how the individual artist can begin to work the idea of narrative into their own concepts. The workshop closes with each attendee spending time creating their own narrative work. The workshop is designed so that each attendee does not have to have a strong visual vocabulary built up and can instead rely on their easier to access verbal vocabulary to get them started.
This workshop is ideal for smaller groups, usually six to eight in size, but can be extended to fit a group of up to a dozen. It can be tailored to fit a classroom setting or a weekend retreat. The workshop is also structured in such a way that it can be presented over the course of several weeks with a class that meets an hour at a time or can be done as an all day workshop.

"Robert's workshop was well organized, helpful and fun! I enjoyed his approach to story telling, and his methods offer me another tool by which I can compose my still life arrangements."
