Mirror, Mirror on the Wall  - by Molly DeLaney, Psy.D.

Actually make that mirror, mirror in my head.....

About a decade ago, scientists discovered a type of neuron which previously had not even been imagined. These neurons are "what some consider both one of the greatest drivers of human progress and one of the prime discoveries in recent neuroscience: mirror neurons. These are neurons in key parts of our brain – the premotor cortex, centers for language, empathy, pain – that fire not only as we perform a certain action but when we watch someone else perform that action. The discovery of this mechanism, made about a decade ago, suggests that everything we watch someone else do, we do as well, on a mental scale." (David Dobbs, Scientific American Mind, June 2006).

 I have learned the "see one, do one, teach one" method. 
Attending a workshop such as the one we will have on Monhegan Island, will give you the opportunity to explore and strengthen your skills through the marriage of painting and visualization.

Mirror neurons help us learn by integrating new information through observation, a key part of what Jacq provides through her demonstrations. 

Visualization most likely also engages the mirror neurons, thus enhancing the incorporation of new approaches to our painting while also encouraging creatively developing your own style. 

And, everyday you will have the opportunity to "do" by painting at gorgeous sites all around Monhegan. 

Lastly, by being part of a community of painters, you can "learn" by seeing how everyone's style is unique to that individual; thus, encouraging the further development of your own style.

If you want to jump-start your creativity, join us on magical Monhegan in July

There are three ferry companies providing service to Monhegan. The most frequent option is the Monhegan Boat Line, leaving three times daily from Port Clyde in the high season. This is the only year-round ferry (actually, there are two ferries, the Elizabeth Ann and the elegant, older Laura B, a converted Army transport built in 1943); in winter they make the trip three times a week, weather permitting. Roundtrip fare is around $32. ($16 for kids); boxes of provisions and large items cost extra. Parking is available for around $7/day.

The Balmy Days II ferry leaves from Boothbay Harbor once a day and also offers half-hour cruises around Monhegan. Service is from May until October and the price is around $30 ? roundtrip. Parking is available for around $6/day.?

Hardy Boat Cruises leave from New Harbor twice a day during high season. A seal watch is included on the return trip.
