This is an in-depth presentation about photography as an art form, focusing on the distinguishing characteristics of art photography. We will be looking at numerous examples of many of my favorite art photographers, from New Mexico to New Jersey to California.
It is a subject that has kept my interest for much of my photographic career. This continuing interest, coupled with my associations with many of the best art photographers in the U.S. (from PPA Master Artists to other accomplished, renowned photographic artists who strongly disagree with the elements and restrictions of the PPA), has led me to assemble about forty talking points on the subject. We will review the art photography examples in the context of many of these points.
The presentation is intended for both photographers and those non-photographers who might find the topic interesting. As for the photographers, there is no minimum experience level. Some examples of Photoshop will be presented, but I am comfortable that even non-users will find these examples interesting.

All creative efforts involve a level of fear and anxiety. Whether it’s cooking, painting or working in our garden, we expose our creative efforts to others' opinions. And that can be pretty scary! This abstract art workshop is designed to help students address the fear that comes with creativity in a judgment free and playful space. Through instruction, inspiration, encouragement and laughter, participants will explore a variety of abstract techniques, play with fun painting brushes and tools, and experiment with several processes and textures. Open to any level of painter; all materials are provided.
About the Instructor: Paula comes from a long line of remarkable female artists. The finest was her Mother who took her first painting class at age 60. That courage inspired Paula to create her workshop: Courage in Creativity. Paula exhibits, paints commissions, serves on the Pagosa Springs Arts Council, and travels the country teaching her workshops. Her art hangs in a variety of private collections and galleries, including Two Old Crows, Pagosa Springs Medical Center Artists' Wall, Higher Grounds, Cindy Houston Pilates, Ambers Alchemy, and Mee's Hmong Cuisine. She has recently been featured in Art Tour International, and as “Top Artist to Watch” in Art Blend magazine.
