We explore my strategies of creative process which will serve as a tool for creating new, innovative, original, creative ideas from your own self. This can change your world.

  • We explore the questions and definitions around creating. We will take the lid off of what limits us to create and place down foundations for us to walk over those hurdles.

  • We will explore techniques which explore the idea of making mistakes and taking risks in the name of creation and originality. Creating by Randomness. Feeling the fear and doing it anyway and ...why that must be.

  • We will start to begin our journey in Creating Deliberately by exploring the concept of 'where to even start'.

  • We will lean and execute multiple techniques which will explore both our conscious and more unconscious ability to innovate.

  • We will finally perform an exercise that will challenge any remaining obstacles which threaten to stand in the way of our ideas.

  • We will discuss how to bring these executed ideas from their fruition as digital artworks to high end valuable assets that make you dollars.

Where to stay

The Masterclass will be held over two days at Sue Bryce's studio in the suburb of Scottsdale, Phoenix, Arizona. Last year myself and a number of attendees stayed at the Scottsdale Marriot at McDowell Mountains, a 4.7 mile distance and 10 minute drive South from the studio.  However you can stay where ever takes your fancy.
