Jane Robinson
Jackson, Michigan

Jane Robinson finds inspiration in the jazz music of early pioneers like Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Sonny Clarke and more. She also loves the work of abstract painters like William de Kooning, Franz Kline and others. “The synchronicity of the time period of the early jazz movement along with modern abstract movement is a powerful inspiration in my work,” she explains. Oftentimes, she plays jazz in the background while painting. One of her favorite quotes comes from Miles David: “Don't play what's there, play what’s not there." She currently lives in Michigan and leads a nonprofit organization that helps dyslexic children with reading skills.

One Day Journey into Abstract Saturday, February 16, 2013 Jane RobinsonStudio - 5600 Horton Road, Jackson, MI 49201 The creative and artistic impulse exists within each of us. It is part of our spirit. Even if you haven't picked up a paintbrush since grade school, your desire to express yourself creatively is expressed daily, throughout your home and garden, even in the choices you make when you get dressed. In my workshops we practice communicating visually while expanding our definition of art, which in turn helps us explore our own creativity. The environment nurtures a safe haven for this process, so my classes are encouraging, free from judgment, and punctuated with Chardonnay breaks. Tapping into our inner resources, we can begin to explore and discover. About the Workshop: One Day Creations - Dynamic Abstracts Always wanted to do abstract painting, but don't know where to begin?

When you were born onto this earth you were filled with the potential to create. Some of you have embraced this potential, recognized the power and call yourself an artist. Sing, paint, sew, bake, garden, design, write, sculpt, weave, dance. Some of your were compelled to name yourself an artist by surrendering to the power, the ache in your soul to release the potential… a necessary compulsion. For others you say “I am not an artist”. But a human being’s life force flows in the direction of creativity. When you block the stream of creativity the energy is trapped inside your soul and body. This energy is repressed. It cannot escape. The energy can take the form of anxiety, an uncertainty in your soul, anger, restlessness or even illness and depression. By allowing your creativity to flow freely you will heal your soul, your mind and your body. It is your creative nature as a human being. Are you realizing your creative potential?

Most creativity development does not come in blinding flashes (although we wish it would)- but in bit by bit, piece by piece, incremental stages. We begin with an idea, or a painting, poem, new song…and then we improve our skills over time. This is known as evolutionary creativity. Most new inventions or ideas are built upon the ones that preceded it. Inventors tinker or putter in their workshops (See post regarding the benefit of puttering, Puttering and Pasta, May 22, 2011) improving their contraptions, ideas, etc. in small steps. Incremental creativity is a great concept to embrace. It frees you up from the need to be perfect. Kaizen is a Japanese word that captures the spirit of incremental creativity perfectly. It means continuous improvement or development. In my workshops the first piece of business is to work with the participants idea that their work must be perfect, comparing their skills or painting to the “ideal”. The process of abstract painting is Kai

WHY PAINT? Painting is a powerful tool that can reawaken passion, aliveness, and wonder. Painting provides a means of exploring our natural attraction to colors and shapes, both abstract and representational. Through painting, you can rediscover and reconnect with your creative self. If you wish to experience the freedom of creativity join me for the next workshop in May 2012
