COMPOSE: A Masterclass

January 4, 2021 - January 31, 2021


So here it is – the inaugural masterclass – COMPOSE!

I feel reasonably confident about teaching a masterclass wherein the participants and I both feel discomfort as we collectively push against our current limits of either understanding or doing art. This event page allows me to stay with philosophy a bit longer. What I don’t write in the description of the class is the fact, that I will emphasize observation of micro-habits within ourselves. If you and I are attending a Masterclass, it is a given by the Law of Diminishing Returns or Pareto Rule, that we will have to put in a lot of effort to get to the next level in art. This is that class.
