What is The Creative Exploration Workshops program?
The CEW is a three-day, intensive program, focusing on the creative arts including painting, printmaking, drawing, sculpting, photography, creative writing and freestyle mediums.
Will I actually be practicing each type of art?
We will have a hands-on workshop portion of each area of focus. Each section during the week will be only a two to three hours long, and is meant to be a taste of that area of art. So you will learn basic technique and practice with the help of the instructor.
What if I am not artistic or haven’t done these things before?
That is exactly the point of the program. To push ourselves outside of our comfort zones creatively in order to explore various mediums and to spark intention and inspiration. Not knowing how to create these types or art is a good thing in this case.
So I will be able to draw and paint after the program?
The program is intended to provide you the experience of working in each medium, but as with any artistic discipline it takes a long time to become adept at these skills. A few hours of focus will give you the understanding and tools to explore each discipline of art on your own for those that interest you.
Will we do any makeup at the event?
There are no makeup application portions of the event.
How will this help me in my makeup career?
Aside from the big picture goal of allowing attendees to push themselves creatively, the program will have many applications to your daily work. During or following each session, we’ll discuss the correlation of the art projects focus with your artistry and career development to bring an immediate understanding of the sections benefits.
What do I need to bring?
Your most creative mind and an openness to try new things and experience your community through a new set of eyes. All other supplies and materials are provided for you during the program.
How many attendees will be at the event?
There is a maximum of 20 attendees.
How many different types of session are going to be held during the event?
We will cover a minimum of three areas of artistry per day for all three days of the program.
What if I can’t be there for the entire week?
The program is set up as one three-day program, however given the logistics of the events, you can come into the program later than Tuesday morning or leave earlier than Thursday if your schedule does not allow for you to spend the entire week with us. The program cost does not change based on missed hours or days.
What is the bonus work day on Friday, June 17?
The bonus work day is a full in-studio day where attendees will be able to continue to work on their projects or start new ones within the mediums we have been working in over the three-day program.
Who will teach the sessions?
Experts in each area of artistry, who are experienced as educators as well, will be our presenters. A full list of each artist will be provided to attendees.
