The Creative Process

Every artist has a creative process. From the inception of an idea to the execution of a vision, creators are driven to express themselves in ways unique to their style, point of view, and history. At Andover, the creation of art is essential to the faculty members who teach it. See how each educator approaches their medium and imparts their expertise on the classes they teach.
