Kal Honey: UnStuck!

 Kal Honey




Strategies for Staying Positive and Productive in the Studio



All artists experience creative ebb and flow in their work. Sometimes the stars are in alignment and everything ticks along beautifully. Other times, not so much! In this presentation, artist and instructor Kal Honey will address the inevitable ups and downs of a creative life, sharing insights and strategies for dealing with some of the more common pitfalls of artistic process: getting creative again after a setback or time away, the importance of “failures”, the pros and cons of perseverance, evaluating your work-in-progress, asking yourself the right questions, overcoming negative thoughts and more! In equal parts inspiring and re-assuring, this talk is for anyone who’s ever doubted their creative process and product.


Join us from 10 a.m. till noon at the Markham Village Library
