OVERVIEW OF THIS WORKSHOP
The Inner Artist: Finding Creative Direction – a two day workshop for creative visual artists, teachers, and designers of all level of expertise.
Do you long to find the artist within, to move outside current boundaries and understand the creative process at a deeper level? When you discover your artist’s inner story, the creative part that is often hidden, the journey is acknowledged and focus increases. You know why you create, and for whom and the path to artistic destiny become clearer. This workshop is given in tutorial form and does include note taking, short exercises, a drawing session with interesting outcomes, and a time for connecting and using all the senses in a short outdoor session.
This workshop covers a lot of material and presents a framework for you to hang your own realisations and discoveries on to explore at a later stage. All change comes at an unconscious level and the workshop is designed to help instigate this transformation, which over time, will result in clearer direction and an understanding of who you are, why you create and for whom. Issues may also be discussed around self worth and managing an art career. Participants who answer the questionnaire on booking will be able to understand better what they are seeking and ensure these areas are covered.
The main purpose is for the participants to absorb what is most valuable to them personally and have insights which may enhance development and artistic direction. Within the group there is going to be different levels of understanding and arts practice and the information is hopefully given in a way that expands thinking at all levels. The workshop is designed to be light hearted, fun, and a safe place to explore and grow. A debrief and question time will allocated at the end of each day to answer and fulfil any questions or needs so please use this time to enhance your growth and understanding.
These workshops are not designed for making any artworks. They are for expanding the mind, accessing flow, and breaking resistance to assist in creating. The exercises are designed primarily to attend this purpose so please be aware that they only make up a portion of the weekend. To get the best outcome from the overall content it requires some commitment to your own studio time afterwards to continue growing in the creative process. Creative artists, teachers and designers of any level of creative expertise will enjoy this two day workshop tapping into their creative resources and finding their true creative direction.
