Directionless Motivation presented by FORFOREVER

Join local artist Francicso Corbett, for his exciting new workshop Directionless Motivation. In this class, Fran will challenge students to explore new possibilities and ask big questions. “Is there something better out there for me?” Through open conversation and a collaborative art installation, students will discover new creative outlets, the importance of community, and focus on the question: “what do you really want to do with your time.” Directionless Motivation addresses the much-needed DIY approach to life and the arts.

In this workshop students will experiment with large blank hanging canvases, and use projectors, slides, title screen cards, and pop culture references to creativity alter their surroundings.
