Creative Box Studios: A selection of art classes for you! 

Have problems finding your art style and starting with your works? Don’t worry, we’ve all been there! Art can be quite daunting for people who think that it can only be good if it’s beautiful, but the foundation in which art is built doesn’t solely depend on beauty and what the eye may perceive. 

Get to know art beyond the lens of the world and see it from the perspective of an artist right here at Creative Box Studios. Here at our studio, we employ professional artists to teach you their techniques and help you from the ground up to enhance your skills in creating art. Get to know us more and what we can offer below: 

Art is seen with the heart and not the eyes

The quote that you see above is the idea in which we built our studio. We believe that everyone has the innate desire to pursue art but not everyone tries simply because they are afraid that it would face scrutiny under the judging eyes of the world. 

For over centuries, we have been too focused on defining beauty through art and labelling every work’s value with how appealing it is to the eye and how much it fits the reality that we live in.

As artists, we think that this idea restrains art and forces it inside a boundary. Art is free and it goes beyond anything. That is the truth that we stand by. There is no label to art since it is created to be boundless and unconcerned with reality. Although it is a reflection of the world we live in as well as an embodiment of beauty, art is also built on concepts that are unknown to us. It is meant to turn impossible things into reality and paint a picture of bizarre ideas. 

With that said, we hope that as you go through our classes, you won’t think of yourself as limited as an artist. Your pieces don’t have to conform to a beauty standard nor does it have to be perfect in the eyes of other people. Art only needs to touch the heart of whoever gazes at it to find its true value. 

Join us in our classes and never be afraid to create your masterpiece here at Creative Box Studios!

Lighting and colour for digital portraits 

Lighting and colour have always been two of the most difficult parts of digital painting. Sometimes, it is hard to predict where light would fall naturally on a subject and thus, this makes the image less realistic in your drawings.

Additionally, this class is also where you would learn how to create the perfect colours for shadows. A basic of the colour theory would be introduced through 10 insightful videos.
