While Instagram is a great way to share yourself with the world, some artists are hesitant to showcase their work on the platform, especially if it's still a work in progress. Because we believe the commitment to spend time on your practice is just as important as the finished work, we encourage artists to use the hashtag #CreativeOfficeHours to document when they work on their craft. You can share photos of your studio, your workspace, painting palette, supplies, work in progress, or even just inspiration you find in the day to day.
We want to celebrate this commitment to your Creative Office Hours by sharing our favorites from the hashtag. Today we are showcasing submissions from Angela Carlson, who currently pursuing her Masters in Clinical and Mental Health Counseling with Specialization in Expressive Arts Therapy at Lesley University. We pulled a sampling of her posts, which are mostly captured while walking through Boston, which she currently calls home. While the posts span the length of a few months and are seemingly random, upon reflecting she feels "these are kind of pulled from what I guess are a 'series' or 'study' of concepts. I collect representations of clouds that I find aesthetically pleasing in the moment or textures/angles/patterns I find unique, or playing with the concept of time. It’s comparable to this concept of 'lateral looking' I uncovered from this book titled Conscious Creativity."
