Art Soundoff, the creative challenge all about reflecting on your creative process via an audio journal, is entering its fourth year. Join Jerzy and Rob for a discussion exploring how we can improve on this challenge for all who take part whether it’s your first or fourth year. Along the way we’ll explore what’s new for Art Soundoff 4.0, why we’re so into the idea still, and why we invite others to join in the fun.
At some point you may be asked to describe your creative process, whether it’s at a friendly get together, an informal meeting at work, on a panel at a conference, or in a workshop environment.
Putting words to thinking that sometimes happens silently and abstractly can reveal new dimensions to the work you’re doing. But how do you approach this unpacking? How does the intended audience shape the presentation material? How does your sense of mission inform the material?
Join us for a discussion on how we go about picking apart our work to turn it into material to present to a variety of audiences.
Side projects!!! What kinds of tensions and constraints do we encounter when we have a side project we try to keep moving yet also have primary commitments? Join Jerzy and Rob for an exploration of tools and reflections on making side projects work and some strategies for when it’s tough going.
We’re doing our first re-broadcast episode! Once again we stand at the threshold of a season of creative challenges. Originally aired on September 16, 2016, this episode is all about setting expectations and goals with regard to creative challenges like Inktober.
How might a 30-day creative challenge help you level-up your work? Do you use it as an opportunity to test new tools or techniques? Is it a way to kickstart a habit? How does the communal aspect of a creative challenge affect your commitment to it?
The 4th quarter of the year is the Season of Creative Challenges. Inktober, NaNoWriMo, 24 Hour Comics Day, and more. In this Lean Into Art Cast we explore how we approach these challenges, what value we’ve derived from them, and perhaps most important of all, how we’ve learned to prepare for them.
