More info on the process:

1. Introduction / The Circle Art concept is a series of compressed workshops designed to help you to illustrate how handmade approaches can influence creatives who heavily depend on the digital screen, and as a consequence, the end result is often flat because of the heavy influence of the computers.

2. Experimentations / Each participant will be immersed in drawing and creating things by hand. The objective of this workshop is to instill the value of typography, calligraphy, lettering, art books, texture making, and photographic experimentation.

3. Goals & Aspirations / This workshop aims to give confidence and ability to participants to reach their creative goals and enable them to unlock their creative potential and enhance their design sensibilities as a whole. Ultimately, to improve upon their concentration and customization of creative ideas.

4. Conclusion / By blending these two philosophies together, the hand-crafted tradition and the digital revolution, we aim to promote and scale the creative possibilities through deeper research to amplify your field of inspiration.
