As a life-long student of creativity (having studied the creative process in-depth in science and mathematics, including publishing thirty mathematical research papers), Linn has, in recent years, expanded her creative scope to include poetry, art, literature and yoga. She created the popular Core Creativity Series to assist participants to invoke, experience and express their inborn natural creativity. In our Spring Mixed Media Creativity Retreat, Linn will guide us in powerful creative expansions that will enrich our art-making experience and take it to a deeper level. She will also guide our morning yoga sessions.

Linn’s work in creativity dovetails with my own goal in teaching art: to help each student connect with and express their own unique style by challenging their horizons, and going beyond the familiar to expand their art practice. Good examples of this approach can be seen at the current exhibition of instructors’ and students’ art at the Morean Art Center, where I and several of my students are exhibiting their work through February 19th.

Besides making mixed media art and doing yoga, activities will include a visit to the Tampa Museum of Art en route to the Rainbow Rivers Center, demonstrations and critiques, a nature walk, swimming in the pool, and a wine and cheese get-together on Saturday evening.
