Ergonomics of Painting Demo @ Daniel Smith Artist's Materials

In this interactive demo we explore ways for painters to maintain comfort in our art making process. I start the demo by showing you painting equipment optimized for working around you and your art rather you and your art working around it. Then we go into positioning and posturing based on any soreness or restriction you deal with or want to prevent. We end by doing basic stretches and simple physical therapy exercises specific to the parts of the body most used by painters. My goal is to give you tools to bring more ease in your artistic process and maintenance of your body as a painter.
