Finding Your Voice with Robert Weatherford

Finding Your Voice – Robert Weatherford November 3 – November 15 | $1,000

Born in Laredo, Texas in 1951 Robert earned a Masters in Systematic Theology at Union Seminary (NY) in 1986. This was followed by a Masters in Painting at Claremont Graduate Art School in Claremont CA. He moved to Telluride in 1977. He was commissioned by the Sierra Club Books to create seventeen paintings for a children’s book entitled Desert Dog, released in Fall 2001. Weatherford resides in Telluride, Colorado painting and teaching at the Ah Haa School for the Arts where he also serves on the Board of Directors. Course Overview: This intensive welcomes new and experienced painters and work builds from day-to-day to become transformational. Our purpose for this intensive, over multiple weeks, is to keep returning to the focus of voice – “How do I say what I need to say in a way that is truly my own?” While inclusive of questions of line, color, composition, as well as art history, we continually return to the question: “What needs to come out of the individual artist?” The philosophy here is that only the individuated voice can lead to being a lifetime painter.
