"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication."
– Leonardo Da Vinci
Do you ever struggle with creating dimension and depth to your art, while staying simple, in a way that feels intentional and integrated? This workshop offers solutions that are much more accessible than you may have thought.
We're going to do deep instead of wide...one of the most important foundational concepts for artists and innovators is constraint. Within constraint, there is infinite freedom.
Discover a source of creative freedom within constraint and a minimalist approach that will surprisingly also translate into helpful direction finding when you are working with an abundance of materials as well.
With a little guidance, LESS (to choose from) really can be MORE (creative flow)!
For artists at the intermediate skill level. Students will walk away with a completed 16x20 painting.
