Art Workspace and Materials Tour

11:00 AM, Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014 - Posted by John Wilson

For those curious as to why I seem to be posting so many art space and workspace tours lately, there is a method to my madness. I find them inspiring and I hope that you do too. A persons work area tells a lot about them. What they use, what they like and how they make it work can be as informative as watching them actually draw. It also inspires me to make my own space better. I hope that all you viewing these videos are creating a specific space of your own to work in.
