By now, most of you know that mixed media artists Lynn & John Whipple are coming to FOUND next week to teach 2 workshops. Lynn just posted on her blog about it and I’m quoting most of what she wrote about sharing the creative process below (or you can go directly to her blog to read). I love her approach to art – and to life, as well! In Lynn’s words -
If I was to make a mini list of my favorite things, it might look like this:
2. Make stuff
3. Play with friends
4. Talk about art and the creative process
5. Learn new things
I can’t think of a better way to do all of these things, with wonderful people in an inspiring setting, than to join together for a mixed media workshop. What could possibly be more fun than sharing ideas, techniques and time with like minded folks?? …
Lately, as a teacher and an artist, the thing that really turns my ticket is the creative process itself. I am really enjoying putting my focus on what this “making stuff” looks like and how we navigate through all the steps that result in a finished piece. I believe that one of the great pleasures in life is taking the tiny seed of an idea all the way to a tangible reality…and then sharing it. YES!!
So in the upcoming workshops, count on lots of new info on how to make your creative dreams become a reality. Another thing to look forward to is a new set of design exercises. I love collage and drawing and want to take some time to discuss how important composition is in all things! Art making is such a rich and varied pursuit, lets celebrate it together!
All my bestest best!!
