August 1 @ 12:00 pm – August 5 @ 4:00 pm
Kickstart your creativity is an intensive course of 20 hours divided into 5 sessions of 4 hours each.
Get inspired by the Canadian artist Trina Doerr and allow yourself to push the limits of your materials and create original and authentic artworks.
In this five-day course we will discuss methods to help kickstart your creativity and move towards developing your own personal style using clay. We will focus on embracing your imagination and translating it into your work.
Participants will be gently guided towards making signature pieces of transformative art. You will be encouraged to embrace your own processes, develop new ways to implement and strengthen your style while solving problems and technically strengthening your skill set.
