Richard Martin Workshop Vision and Discovery: Explore Your Creative Spirit

By Nelly Almeida-Long


I recently participated in a Richard Martin workshop held in Ottawa. The workshop was such a great experience! We went to places that you would normally go to when in a new city, but took pictures that were out side the norm. Richard pointed out things that were not visible to most of us and the experience was so eye opening. We were all walking around looking up at the ceiling, looking for lines, curves and splashes of colour for details that most people just walk by.



Richard was a great teacher with lots of patience and such a willingness to share his knowledge and vision with us. I highly recommend his workshops for anyone who would like to try something new and get out of their comfort zone. I don’t think any of us will ever be able to walk into a museum and not look up to see what kind of creations can be made…fun was had by all!

I look forward to “seeing” the possibilities all around me as I explore my city with new eyes.
