Welcome to all things Creative

“Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life. Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it."- Neil Gaiman

 My Education Philosophy: 

Why take an art class? It all comes back to the idea: to truly think outside the box, you first have to learn where the edges are. Most people have the misconception that art should only be about exploring and expressing yours ides. Sure, that’s part of it but you can do that on your own and it will only take you so far.  The power of taking an art class is it helps you develop a common visual vocabulary, a wider range of skills (yes! They can be taught!), and see how others experience art as well. These “tricks” make communicating and executing an idea easier and deepen your relationship to the visual arts. There is always room for exploring but having a “bag of tricks” to pull from makes exploring more likely you’ll uncover truly new ideas and experiences.
