On Wednesday, November 15, the public is invited to the free New Heights program: “Should I Create Art?” from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at The MAIN, located at 24266 Main Street in Old Town Newhall.  Two successful artists will give their advice on how to overcome your creative block as an artist and how to address questioning your passion for art. The free event is open to the public and no RSVP is required to attend.

For a creative professional, a creative block isn’t just frustrating—it’s potentially career-damaging. But all creative blocks are not created equal. Different types of blocks require different solutions. At this free panel discussion, artists will discuss the most common types of creative blocks and provide tips and tricks on how to unblock them.
