Artforce NL x EE Workshop: Relaxing Creativity with Christine Hennebury
“I’m calling this a workshop but really we’re going to be playing around with the creative process and finding ways to relax. I’ve got a few teeny projects for you to try and I’m hoping you’ll be willing to be awful at each of them. Yes, I am encouraging you to be bad at art. Why? Because this workshop is about the process, not about the results. We’re not trying to create a beautiful piece of art, we’re going to play with paint or paper or words and just find some ease for a few minutes. Picture a little kid lying on their stomach, tongue stuck out of the corner of their mouth as they concentrate, scrawling away at a piece of paper with a crayon – that’s the kind of feeling we’re going for. You don’t have to be GOOD, you just have to BE. Bonus points if you make a mess of things. All supplies will be provided and no one will be put on the spot at any point about anything.”
