Welcome to YOUR Creative Voice

Finding The Self-Aware Artist’s Creative Voice
A Workshop by Michaell Magrutsche about Self-Aware Art, which is the study of an artist’s uniqueness, expressed through Voice instead of just skill. Therefore, it is for all artists and skill levels wanting clarity and certainty about:

  1. Discovering your unique artistic expression (Voice) and how to express it with ease.
  2. Acquiring understanding and inner knowing of your next step(s) to create instead of wasting time trying.
  3. Learning about the underlying functions in art, i.e. How does art engage the audience? How is art a luxury product? Why is contrast the most important function in presenting art?
  4. Understanding the art business/market and how it can relate specifically to your work.

Self-Aware Art WorkshopArticulating one’s Voice is essential to differentiate yourself from others and connect your individual expression into today’s world. A clearly refined Voice with organic description is the first important connection to your audience. It comes before you market and brand yourself as an artist. It is not a concept, it is you and how you express yourself and connect to others.  The Self-Aware Artist’s creative Voice workshop is the only model providing the clearest communication between artists, business and the audience. This workshop brings humanity and passion back to the arts and elevates any arts-conversation to be exponentially more rewarding.
