Get Your Art On

Last night I learned all the basics of Gocco printing in a class at the IPRC taught by the always delightful Gretchin Lair of Scarlet Star Studios.

I went to the class with a particular project in mind (to be revealed this fall), but the possibilities are nearly endless. It was so simple and so fun!

So much fun that it reminded me just how important it is that you let your artist out to play from time to time.

Have you taken yourself on a play-date recently? How often do you give yourself a break from client- or business-driven creativity to make something without a predetermined goal or purpose? How important is this to recharging your creative batteries?
