This workshop course will be about the studio processes to creative critical thinking. The goal of the class is trying to open a path for students to embrace their unique points of view while still applying a technical standard in craftsmanship and execution. This will be geared towards artists who have a desire to refine their creative voice and broaden their visual understanding of subject matter, color, and texture. Over the two days Daniel Segrove will be going over ways to understand the approaches to creating a series or body of work that can then be applied on a professional level. These exercises will allow students to apply it towards any style they may be interested in; so they can have the creative freedom to personalize their own visual vocabulary.
