Most artists make every effort to create something unique; something that is new to the world. This can be a daunting task because there is “nothing new under the sun”. Part of our job as artists is to start conversations that lead to growth and understanding for us, the makers and our audience, the viewers of our art. How we express ourselves becomes our visual language. There is great risk in borrowing techniques verbatim from other artists. In this segment, Heather will help you understand how you can take any technique and make it your own by putting your own unique spin on it. She will also explain the concept in which visual language can be constantly changing, if you let it!
