Creativity Lab for Artists

“ONLY” TECHNIQUE IN ART IS NOT ENOUGH

Creativity can come from originality and novelty or by the expression of our authentic emotional true self, which by default is unique and for this reason original. But how to obtain this? How to go beyond “just” technique and use it to convey and give strength to our artistic message or emotional expression?

This program aim to bring committed and serious artists on a guided journey of self-discovery and very hands-on practice. It is targeted to participants who have already a certain level of artistic technique and want to:

  • Have a breakthrough in terms of creativity
  • Enhance their painting experience beyond technique and learn artistic expression
  • Grow as individual through a reflection on their painting practice journey and a self-discovery exercise to connect with their true Self
  • Reinforce connection with fellow artists and tap in the power of peer group learning
  • Challenge themselves through the participation and organization of a collective exhibition
