Program: Learning Creativity with Nancy Cavender-Garcia
Many believe that creativity is a gift bestowed to the geniuses of the world, but in reality, creativity is available to all. It simply needs to be nursed, cultivated and practiced. In a study by George Land and Beth Jarman it was found that non-creative behavior is learned. Nancy Cavender Garcia will highlight practices that will spark your creativity and help you develop the right muscles to intensify your creative skills.
Nancy Cavender-Garcia earned her BFA and MFA degrees in photography at the University of New Mexico. She has been practicing photography since 1984 and has extensive experience in traditional black/white photography, digital photography, non-silver processes, hand coloring photographs, pinhole photography and more.
Cavender-Garcia has been teaching since 1998 at various venues and now she aspires to help individuals achieve their goals in photography and add creativity to their lives through the workshops at The Creative Light.
