THE MAGIC OF PROCESS with Kateri Ewing
International Center for Watercolor
Tuesday, July 23, 2019, 10:30 am–12:30 pm

Artist/Instructor:  Kateri Ewing
$24 members/$34 not-yet members

Our time together will be spent in the creative and meditative play of process, discovering the beauty and possibilities of different tools and materials and many ways to get our creative juices flowing. We will explore techniques and theory that encourage process over product and ease our way into discussions about the how and why of our own personal creative practice. 

I hope to share my philosophy of creative practice as a watercolorist, and the importance of finding our own voice and making time to simply play in ways that inform all of our work. Join the dynamic workshop of falling in love with our watercolour practice all over again. More info at www.BurchfieldPenney.org.

The Burchfield Penney Art Center at SUNY Buffalo State is excited to host the third season of our innovative partnership with the Parkinson's Foundation WNY to present Art Moves Me, a gallery-based dance program designed for people living with brain and movement disorder disease.

Art Moves Me is a site-specific program designed expressly for The Center by Cynthia Pegado. This initiative distinguishes Buffalo as one of only five cities in the world to offer Parkinson’s-specific programming in an art museum setting. Developed to stimulate physical, cognitive and imaginative forces within each person, this community class draws upon therapeutic fundamentals of Dance for PD® by Mark Morris Dance Group, Brooklyn, NY, while creating a unique experience inspired directly by the artworks on exhibit.

This free program is open to the public. Care-partners and community friends, adults and accompanied children ages 8 and up are welcome to participate. Please pre-register, as space is limited. More info at www.BurchfieldPenney.org.
