What is a FOUNDER?
You get all the perks, lowest dollar💰 locked in for a year, and being part of the creation of the collective with 🗳voting rites as we grow and create this community together.
Do you want to learn how to make photo impressionist artwork with your cell phone (or other camera)?
I do it with my iPhone! I truly believe that art making is about the artist, not the tool. The tool is important, but YOU are the one wielding it. You are the one that the vision comes from. Before the iPhone, I made art with a plastic camera called Holga. Nothing fancy, just an imperfect plastic lens. 🎨
I believe that anyone can make art with anything that is available to them. It’s one reason why I love trash art!! But that’s another story.
So in honor of imperfect action and just taking a giant leap, I’m creating a new learning and inspiration membership for YOU.
The intention is to teach you how to make photo impressionist art with your phone (or camera) wherever you are.
My secret goal, deeper than the art making, is to inspire you to pause in your life, in your day to day routine and see things in a new way, to connect deeper to your feelings, to the moment and to the energies around you.
And in not exactly knowing the layout of the program, I am trusting in my intuition and offering a 🍾 FOUNDER'S launch of this new collective!
1. Understanding light and shadows-inside and out
2. Composition and relationship to the space, cropping with the camera
3. Intentional shooting and mindfulness- does the camera bring you closer to or further from the moment?
4. Capturing the ephemeral
5. Photographing textures and macro photography
6. Visual journaling and storytelling
7. Black and White photography-the contrasts in life
8. Color, emotions and the chakras
9. Motion and Blur
10. The Art of Attention
11. Self-portraits, Self-reflection
12. Photographing essence of place and people
13. What is impressionism
14. Filters and alternative lens
We will NOT cover:
This is a creative collective for anyone regardless of their technical skills and background. A technical professional might enjoy trying something new and letting go of the tech while embracing the blur! We will focus on creativity, spontaneity and play!
