How is this Raw Creativity session different than the Art Of Processing?
The Art Of Creativity is less technical and more conceptual. It’s about strengthening your vision so you can produce better imagery. It’s about generating ideas – lots of them! It’s about choosing and developing projects that are right for you. It’s best for people who want to find a focus or explore a new direction. Take this workshop and you’ll see many, many more possibilities. You’ll never run out of ideas! You’ll begin to find your vision and define your voice. Take both! They’re designed to complement each other perfectly.
While not everyone can or does, we recommend you take our Raw Creativity workshops in this progression Art Of Creativity (Vision), Art Of Processing (Style), and Master Class (Project). They’re designed to complement each other perfectly!
