2. Enjoy at Improvisation

Have you at any time taken an improv course? This strikes dread in lots of men and women, though other people come across it a wonderful experience. Artists can borrow from the improv playbook by working with the “yes and…” prompt.

Improv gamers use this prompt to construct on the storyline that has been tossed to them. For example, they are informed, “You are a pregnant female giving start in a convenience retail outlet.” The “yes and…” that the participant makes improvements the tale and moves it forward: “…and the keep is loaded with clowns.”

In your artwork, you can use this to take your paintings into new and surprising directions. Search at a portray that is nearly complete. What form of “yes and…” can you build that would radically modify the final edition of the piece (even though earning you smile)? Would you rip it up and collage it back again jointly? Would you overlay anything completely distinctive on element of it? Would you turn it upside down and commence painting that way?
