This 12-month workshop is an advanced study program tailored to each member’s goals, needs, skill level, and progress. Only members who have satisfactorily completed the 6-month Pre-Visualization Workshop and have the required established foundation and skill level may enroll. (Skill level is defined as the member’s unique way of seeing.) Meetings are structured similar to the 6-month workshop with a relaxed, comfortable pace focused on individual study and progress.

The goal of this workshop is to challenge members to continue to develop their true personal style and achieve a higher standard for themselves in seeing and creating images. Each member will be encouraged to develop self-assigned projects on which to work for a period of time.
