Art Throb talks Creativity with Jim Falck

December 8, 2011

North Shore’s Art*Throb Street Guide Magazine talks to Montserrat’s Continuing Education Instructor, local Beverly artist, and alumnus Jim Falck ’91 in their December 2011 issue: HEAT (Vol. I, Issue 9). Falck talks about his career in landscape architecture, what it was like starting his art education at the age of 60, the creative flow, and establishing Montserrat’s Continuing Education Department two-day course “Wild Side of the Brain” in their “hotwiring the brain” article by Sarah Wolfe.

“I’m a changed person. Pursuing art has enveloped me into a whole new life – new ideas and new ways of thinking,” said Falck. “Getting out there and exposing ourselves to creativity encourages us. Even if you’ve been away from making art for years or are stuck in a rut, the ability to reach the creative flow always comes back if you allow it to.”
