Art + Travel
Inspiration, Influence & Beauty

January 10-15th



The Visionary Projects is delighted to be hosting the "Growing Your Inspiration & Influence as an Artist" travel workshop with international artists Alice Herbst and Chris Högman in Miami Beach, Florida.

Alice Herbst and Chris Högman are both artists and partners sharing a studio in their home in Stockholm. Sweden. Alice specializes in works with oil on canvas, while Chris uses digitally sampled paint to create new compositions with a graphic tablet, transforming then into physical elements under the process of 3D-printing. The artists met during their studies at the Swedish art school "Gerlesborgsskolan". After graduating they started to work full time with fine arts and developing an audience on their main platform: Instagram.

Alice and Chris' workshop focuses on the following essential goals - finding the balance between traditional art and contemporary art, how to mix concepts and create something truly unique and personal and how to pursue a career as an artist with contemporary methods such as networking internationally and marketing your work in a smart & efficient way. During this four day workshop there will be lectures, courses and visits to the galleries and museums of Miami. Alice and Chris encourages you to bring your artwork the last day for full feedback.
