Tickle your imagination, get past creative blocks, and expand the possibilities of your art in this workshop with Bret Cook.

Tickle your imagination, get past creative blocks, and expand the possibilities of your art in this experiential workshop. The principles of design, composition, technique, and thinking outside the box will be covered. Lectures, assignments, and critiques will help you develop insight into creativity and meaning, whether you work in oils, acrylics, pastels, pen and ink, graphite, airbrush, photography, or sculpture. You will learn best practices to further your artistic understanding, inspiration, and scope of imagination, all while seeing how others approach creativity.

This class is for artists of all levels in all mediums. It is individualized for each student in their medium of choice.

Faculty’s email will be provided upon registration. Please contact him prior to start of course for information on how best to prepare for the program as well as a list of supplies to bring.
