My neighbor Randy Elrod has put together a seminar for pastors and spiritually minded people in the arts called "Re:Create". It runs Feb 5-8 here in Franklin. (There's still time to sign up, if you're interested). Randy is a painter and writer, and for many years was on the ministry staff at the People's Church working with artists and musicians.
I am going to be one of the guest speakers, but don't let that stop you from coming. From all signs this is going to be a great time to learn and exchange ideas.
I'll be giving a presentation on Storyboarding, which will be kind of interesting, because I doubt very many of the attendees draw for a living, though, most of them are probably storytellers in one fashion or another. At any rate, I know that lessons and inspiration can be gleaned from just about anywhere. So I am confident that folks will walk away with something from my talk... at least I hope so.
I remember years ago, I was taking fencing lessons (fascinating sport!), and it was strange one night when I found myself comparing they way I was learning this sport with how I was approaching figure drawing. (That thought just begs for a funny drawing doesn't it?) Seriously, I have come to believe that all learning is connected.
Anyway, check out the Re:Create site and if you're gonna be in this neck of the woods, sign up!
