Whether just starting out or a seasoned professional, we all get creatively stuck sometimes.
In this workshop learn tips, tricks & tools to break through creative blocks & maintain flow. Experiment with playful creative exercises designed to loosen you up & get you out of your head — including experimentation with paint, mark-making, collage & mixed media. Discover studio practices that best foster & nurture creativity, learn ways to implement these habits into your own practice & go home with resources to explore further (& of course, Golden samples!)
