I thought I would write this post because having taught hundreds of learners I recognise two types of learner. Those that experiment and those that won’t and I am sure you can guess which learners have the best results.
What do I mean by experimenting and why is it so important?
I am essentially talking about a free mind to experiment and try things out without knowing where it will lead. This approach allows discoveries to be made which is part of the learning creative process. By trying things out we get to discover our own unique style in art, what media we like, the types of marks we can make etc.
