Virtual Program: Play as Creative Process with Martha Wakefield
Cambridge Art Association
Apr. 18, 2021, 10:00 am
This program will be hosted online, using ZOOM
This 1-day workshop invites artists to discover the importance of play in their artistic practice. As defined by the dictionary: play (verb) means to engage in activity for enjoyment and recreation rather than a serious or practical purpose. The purpose of this class is to help artists improve creativity, explore new ideas, stay inspired and motivated. We will achieve this through a series of brand new exercises engaging with both traditional and non-traditional painting materials. For students who have attended Embrace the Creative Process, these new exercises build on those from past workshops. Open to artists willing to experiment, take chances, and play!
(Materials list forthcoming!)
