all about your

artistic style button.png

We can't get away from it and yet... it alludes us! How do you know what your artistic style is? And how can you make your unique imprint shine as brightly as the artists you admire?

first, discover your type

You've taken the quiz and you know your style type. But how did you land here? Understanding what makes up your style is the next step. The components are outlined below.
Just spell it out:

style

skill

You might not like this: your ability will always play a role in your style. Regardless of what we admire, we do what we know. We do wht we can. Sounds pretty limiting, right? But this is a very-real constraint that can be changed. Rest in the good news: growth is limitless. There's room to grow.

DEVELOP SKILLS

taste

What you like is a huge factor in what you gravitate toward. Every chef's palate prefers certain ingredients. And your painting palette plays similarly. Notice what you like and why. Listen to your responses.This will show you more than your own creations.

PINPOINT FLAVORS

you

It's so "you." Those tendencies... to use that tool, color, or [you-name-it], and you simply can't stop yourself! Congratulations, you've uncovered a elements of your style! Ironically, you're tempted to bypass them. Try doing the exact opposite.

LEAN INTO YOU

links

You are linked to your experiences and your influences. Formative moments and early affinities funnel into your current inspirations. We creatives are made up of connections! And we continue the chain to others through our interpretations. 

CONNECT DOTS

expression

Whether you paint cows on rolling hills or crows on posters, you're responding to something. You share a message. You might proclaim goodness or expose injustice. Your heartbeat rolls out of your work. And it shows up repeatedly in your style.
