LQAF: Do you have any favorite techniques or processes that you are willing to share?

MLN17: The one thing I will say about this is don’t feel pressured to conform to any process, technique, or concentration. Learn the ropes, learn to truly see, figure out what you like, try lots of different things, experiment, push yourself, and if it turns out you really want to work solely with acrylics, or video, or toothpicks, then so be it. But be the one to make that decision for you. And nearly everything is mutable…almost nothing is set in stone. What is the old adage? Experience is the dispeller of doubt. When you do/make/act, you can then begin to figure out what makes sense to you.

 

IAMNOTADJ will spin eclectic mixes of dance, abstract down tempo, and even old classics in the Splash Lounge.  Lunchtime Listening begins at 11:30 am and ends at 2:30 pm daily.
