Hetland's Studio Habits are a great way to organize any space where art-making is taking place. One of these studio habits emphasizes envisioning. Envisioning is the first step in composing a work of art. Stretch and explore by using the media you're accustomed to in entirely new and different ways. Use the elements of art and design to push the media in directions you hadn't considered. Try using things you hadn't considered before.
Ex: If you're using acrylic try working with oil. Or, if you're working with watercolor, try working with pigment and a mortar and pestle.
