Our Guest Speaker for the KAS November 2017 meeting is Paul Macklin.
“Artist and creative mentor, inspiring artists to find their unique creative path”
Artist and creative mentor, inspiring artists to find their unique creative path.
“I see that we all have a zone at the edge of our experience where we have the opportunity to learn, to step into the unknown. We can do that by starting with known principles and expanding towards the edge, or simply by stepping off and learning to fly. My job is to help students discover their own method for confidently extending their creative practice.”
Paul Macklin is a highly versatile artist and an enthusiastic teacher. He seeks to bring out the creative in everyone he meets and engages those around him in his passionate exploration of art and life.
His interests are widespread and include poetry writing, creating pottery, making music, painting, acting and working as a creative director. This diverse range of interests adds to his unique perspective and provides invaluable tools in his teaching and mentoring.
Paul’s art combines traditional elements of draftsmanship, structure, and form, with the creative interplay of abstraction and expression.
