 What makes you an artist? Where does your unique voice come from? How does your creative work connect with your viewers? Could your past- and past experiences- hold half-buried clues for a richer future? Using psychology, anthropology, genetics, ancestry and more, human beings ask probing questions that look to the past, the present and the future, in a personal search to better understand themselves and their connection with others.

What is the “personal record” that YOU will leave behind? There certainly is a plethora of information available to artists on how to succeed financially, how to write a CV, how to find gallery representation, use social media promotional materials and more. Artists acquire skills, hone their craft with time and practice (and an inordinate amount of patience!) but often are not quite sure what meaning the making has. How does your creative work speak to your viewer? Does it speak at all?

Join nationally known Atlanta artist Leisa Rich for an enlightening, comprehensive and transformational workshop titled “Artistic Genealogy: Charting Your Creative Journey”. This brand-new approach is available nowhere else and is the culmination of 7 years of intensive research Leisa has done.

With Leisa’s help you’ll examine your ancestral, family, health, social, educational, artistic (visual arts/music/creative writing/dance/theatre- whatever your passion is!) and technological influences to create “trees” of your creative self. You’ll work on your own using introspective, personal response charts and in dynamic discussion groups to heighten your awareness of subtle connections, and will uncover fruitful directions for future work. Attendees will receive specific examples of how successful artists put their personal voice into their body of work, complete comprehensive worksheets in genealogy format to help them delve deeply into the things that can inspire heightened awareness of, and reveal, the self in the arts and participate in group and individual idea-building activities. According to Rich, the process is an excellent way for artists to get unstuck, find a new direction in their work and reveal new sources of ideas. Expect thoughtful insights, moments of self‐discovery, creative new avenues to pursue, and lots of fun with fellow artists.

Discover a better understanding of how your work has been informed by the past, and where it is going tomorrow!
