LIVING A CREATIVE LIFE  |  Linda Ruscio McIntosh

 April 5, 2017


Linda McI



Using samples of recent mixed media works on rusted steel, Linda shares inspirational stories and tips on how to expand personal growth as an artist by cultivating creativity on a daily basis.


She will discuss the preparation required to achieve ultimate creative freedom, such as studio set-up and how to manage time to develop projects (including time to play and explore) before hitting the easel.


Linda has been an active member of the Markham Group of Artists for the past nine years, serving both as Show and Projects Director. She is also involved in creative workshops for young artists in the schools and team-building workshops for adults in the corporate field. Catching the creative bug at an early age (along with the belief that the purpose of art is to inform, inspire and delight), Linda is passionate about sharing the intrinsic values of art with others, hoping they will rediscover their own creative side. 


The Members' Day Meeting will take place at Markham Village Library from 10 a.m. until noon.
