Environment as Inspiration, Inspiration into Art

This two-part presentation tackles the questions of inspiration and environment as influential aspects in “signature” art-making.

The first part of the presentation will explore how many artists’ family/home, nearby natural environments and constructed surroundings influence and inform their work. Get ready to hear quotes, see pictures and watch a series of short pre-recorded video interviews with professional artists working in polymer clay.

The second portion of the presentation will include a quick survey of current creativity exercises (not necessarily limited to polymer clay) that briefly highlight tips by, or practices of, artists in their production of successful “representative” work where one’s environment is a key element.


Monday, August 14 – Afternoon
