How to give yourself a creative boost (part one)

How taking an art class inspired me in my career as a visual designer

Working remotely can sap your creative energy, so in a bid to give myself a boost, I recently took a couple of classes at the Putney School of Art and Design. Running from April, the 12-week life drawing and oil painting courses explored perspective, form, negative space, palette knife techniques, colour mixing and much, much more.

It was a great way to let off steam, meet new people and have a lot of fun – I even had one of my life drawings on the wall at the school’s summer exhibition.

If you’re running low on creative energy, I highly recommend you seek out your local class, join an online course or just pick up a pad and pencil and go for it, you never know where it might lead.
