Top 5 Benefits From Taking An Art Workshop

workshop-z

From my experience here are the top 5 benefits from taking an art workshop :

1. Boost creativity
2. Freed up to play (No longer stuck)
3. Inspires you to develop and schedule your art practice
4. Quality of work improves
5.  Productivity goes up

Another benefit is widening your social network.  It’s not uncommon for people who meet each other in a workshop to find other ways to paint together. I’m curious what benefits you think are available from taking a workshop? Let me know by leaving a comment below.

For those interested, here is my studio workshop schedule thru May :

Introductory Mixed Media Workshop
This fun, concentrated workshop will have you exploring and practicing ideas and techniques used in creating mixed media abstract art. I will be sharing methods to approach composition, color and texture, while discussing intuition, and letting go. All paint and materials are provided. You may bring any water-soluble paints or favorite brushes you like to work with, but not needed.
All skill levels welcomed-No artistic experience necessary. All that is needed is a positive attitude and a willingness to play.
Hours: 1 – 4:30 pm
Cost for each workshop – 75.00 (15% discount for signing up for two or more workshops in advance.)

All Day Saturday Mixed Media Workshop
In this fun, exploratory workshop you’ll have all day to express your creativity as I share my approach to creating mixed media abstract art. All paint and materials provided.
You may bring any water-soluble paints or brushes you like to work with, but not needed.
This workshop has an option to bring something you are working on.
Note: If you want to bring large work, you’ll need to let me know the size to make sure there is enough room in the studio. Also if you want to work vertical, you will need to bring your own easel, and possibly larger brushes.
All skill levels welcomed-No artistic experience necessary.
All that is needed is a positive attitude and a willingness to play.
Hours: 10 – 5 pm
