Sedona AZ (October 14, 2012) - Want to know the secrets behind the extraordinary creativity of renowned Sedona artist and performer, Chris Spheeris? Want to get up close and personal to find out what he is feeling, thinking, and doing when his music, art, and writing come to life?
Spheeris will share his approach to expressing creative essence at Lunch and Learn, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) Keynote Speaker program, in Room 34 of the Yavapai College Sedona campus on Wednesday, October 17, 2012 from 1:00 – 2:00 PM.
The Lunch and Learn series is a “town square” for local residents to gather, chat, and interact with speakers who are interesting. This enjoyable, informative, weekly community event is free and open to the public.
Chris Spheeris’s music has been heard on TV shows, documentary films, Olympic competitions, Miss Universe pageants, commercials, NPR radio, pop songs, and satellite and syndicated programs. After releasing more than a dozen widely applauded albums, Chris shifted to song writing, performing, recording documentary soundtracks, and writing poetry. Out of this came an Emmy award, a book of poetry, and a repertoire of songs that he has since been performing.
Spheeris also directs his creativity to photography and digital art, and creating and scoring original meditations. His extensive portfolio includes images of Greece, classic cars, flowers and cacti, portraits and abstract composite mandalas. He has broadened his creative effort to leading unique multi-day experiential workshops that offer opportunities for pure expression of one’s essence, unrestrained by judgment and self-limitation.
Join Chris at the October 17 Lunch and Learn as he speaks about the principles behind his approach to creativity, and shares some of his own creative work. Bring your lunch (or come for complimentary coffee, tea, water, and light snack) and join the lunch conversation at 12:30 PM followed by the program from 1:00 – 2:00 PM. Chris will present for up to thirty minutes followed by a Q & A.
